solidworks errors and then shuts down while trying to view a document in the vault. what could be the cause?
What error message are you receiving?
there is no error code just states solidworks needs to shut down and then shuts down.
After doing that several times and restarting Solidworks it comes out of it for a while then comes back when the computer is restarted.
If you copy the file out of the vault... say to your desktop... will it open correctly? Also, what type of file is it?
This happens only when viewing a solidworks file in the vault. When you go to the vault and view document before it can be viewed Solidworks crashes
Ok Thanks. is it on every file or just a certain one? I'm assuming when you say "view document" that you are clicking on the "View File" button. Is that correct? Does the "Preview" tab work with the Edrawings preview? Also, what version of Solidworks, EPDM and Edrawings are you using?
We found that when we upgraded to 2014 that Edrawings would crash everytime. This had to do with the video card drivers of an AMD ATI card. Have you upgraded Solidworks, EPDM or Edrawings recently? Have you changed computer? Do you have the same problem on all computers or it just happening on one?
