Solving Contact Constraints Stalls

Hi All,


I'm running a linear static model on SW Premium 2012 SP5.  I have validated my model setup by running the simulation with the same loads/fixtures/connections with a draft mesh and everything works great.  When I try a high quality mesh, the mesh come out fine but the solver seems to stall.  I've attached a screen shot that shows my CPU usage sitting at near idle but the solver is apparently cranking away.  At first, I thought it may be in between steps, however it sits "idle" for 8+ hours.  This also appears to happen repeatedly - I've rebooted my computer and even rebuilt the model & simulation (with new file names) but the same thing happens.  Additionally, I just wiped and reinstalled SW last week.  All model and results files are stored locally and I have appropriate permissions to the drives.  Any thoughts as to why this could be happening?


Thanks for the help!
