Good afternoon all,

 

We have been using Soildworks 2010 now for well 4 years, and we have been very happy with it but havent really seen a need to upgrade as we simlpy can not justify the cost.

 

So I was very supprised to find today that solidworks is now "causing a problem" at start up and RX states:

 

Your current graphics card/driver combination is not in the SolidWorks systems/graphics card database.

 

This is pretty strange as the laptop we run it on remains unchanged and the graphics driver is also unchanged.

 

A check for the correct driver on SW website reveales that on windows 7 64bit is being supported. We are ans always have run Windows 7 32bit.

 

Is there a work around for this error?

 

We are now at a stop because of this fault.

 

Thanks for any help.
