    2014 lockup!

    Jeff Hamilton

      I just found that if I select Messages/errors/warnings under the 2014 system options my solidworks locks up and I have to kill it manually and restart. Luckily I wasn't in the middle of anything important when I found it. Has happened every time so far...

          Call your VAR and see if they can reproduce what you are seeing. Then they can log a bug with SolidWorks so it can get fixed.

           

          Cheers,

            Jeff, I noticed that SolidWorks took a while to populate that list of messages during which the machine was hung, but it eventually it started responding again.

            I'm noting to some pretty heavey RAM usage, so the delay might be attributable to my AntiVirus software.  I'm checking into that now.

            I'm running 2014 SP1.0 on Win 7 Pro 64bit.

              Jeff,

              We've got a few guys here that have had that same issue.  If anyone finds a fix, please post!  I will do the same.

              Thanks!

                Hi Jeff - just tried it on 2014 SP2.0 Win7 x64 and no hang problem.  Turned on a few 'off' messages and still ok.  I did it with & without a model file loaded just in case...

                  I had the same problem even after upgrading to SP2. I deleted the HKCU\Software\Solidworks\SolidWorks 2014 entry and let 14 rebuild it. It's working correctly now!

                      More specifically, I renamed

                       

                      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SolidWorks\SolidWorks 2014\General\DontAskAgainOptions

                       

                      and reopened SolidWorks.  This fixed the problem for me.

                          The problem is back.

                              Hi Robert,

                              Can you tell me how long you let SolidWorks go before killing it?  Also, can you look into the registry key you give above and tell me thelist of messages that are shown in here?  This may help us reproduce the problem.

                              Thanks,

                              John

                                  John,

                                  I left it for about 10 minutes before killing it.  I was going to attach a .txt version of the registry location.  But, for some reason, the HTML editor only allows pictures and video.  So, here's the cut-and-paste version:

                                      Hi Robert,

                                      I wasn't able to import it into my registry with the format above.  Can you do it again by exporting the reg folder you give above to a .reg file and then open the .reg file in notepad and simply cut and paste that text into your forum post?  It should look something like this with roughly 150 entries:

                                              Hi Robert,

                                              Good news.  With your registry I am able to reproduce the hang.  This issue has been given SPR number 783857 and we will begin working on a fix.  Once we figure out why your registry values cause a hang while most others do not, we will also try to give you a workaround for the problem.

                                              Thanks for your input,

                                              John

                                  Has there been any progress on this? I need to fix when an error message shows, but cannot access that screen because it locks up my computer.

                                      You can try hitting the "Reset" button in your System Options and then manually redo all of your settings.  Using Copy Settings Wizard to reimport your settings will cause the error to happen again.

                                       

                                      After manually readjusting your settings, you can save a Copy Settings Wizard file that will not cause this error anymore.

                                      Please be warned though, the next time you click on the Message/Errors/Warnings after the reset it's fine; subsequent clicks will result in the lock up again.  Warning you all as it's just happened to me again and lots of work has been lost
