As you know, once the Admin Image of Solidworks is updated, theusers PC should also update upon a Solidworks restart.  If itdoes not, the swspmanager.exe file can be launched. It will checkthe Admin Image and then update accordingly.  With most of myusers, this works great.  But, a few of them will not updateno matter what I do.  I cannot figure out how to update themto the latest SP without reinstalling Solidworks completely. I wentto the registry and found the path to English_i386_SolidWorks.msifor the Admin Image.  Not sure why the path was incorrect, butit was.  After I corrected all of the paths, I still can't getthe PC to update. Does anyone have any ideas?
