    Pause for few seconds to open a file

    Chris Champions

      Just happened recently - Each time I click the icon to open a file, SW is paused for few seconds before poping up the open dialog box

      Anyone here has seen this? If yes, what's a fix

          you might try running Solidworks Rx and cleaning out your temp folders

          Another possibility is you've got a compatibility issue between SolidWorks and your virus scanner (you might exclude the SolidWorks process or file types from monitoring)

          Another possibility is you've got a high-priority process that's interfering with solidWorks calls to the operating system-likely culprits are Raid 0 backup processes, turning on shadow copy in the BIOS and the indexing service.

          You could also have a messy registry update from installing SW15.  Try removing and re-installing SolidWorks if all else fails.
