i Have installed solidworks student version but after the installation the software is not opening, by the way i can open solidworks eDrawings as well as the solidworks Composer but solidworks 2014 in not opening.
What kind of issues or error message are you seeing. Please check in the program files, or control panel to make sure it has been installed.
As seen in the above screen shots i have installed the student version in my laptop but it does not start, other application like eDrawing & composer opens up on double clicking the icon but the solidworks application does not give any response or does not even show any error message, it just does not start
Make sure and check if your system specs as per the requirements given here: SOLIDWORKS System Requirements
My computer meets almost all the requirements excluding the RAM requirement that is 8GB( recommended) and i have 4GB RAM that should not cause any problem in launching of the software. I think even if 8GB is recommended and i dont have the required RAM the software should launch but in my case there is nothing happening after double clicking on the icon.
What is your OS SP. Does it match with the system requirements.
Can you try installing it again?
I did check with the operating system specifications do match with the system requirements. I have windows 8.1 64 bit installed in my computer.
I had a single user license so if i reinstall the software so would the same license key work the second time?
I had this issue. I had an older version on my comp so I did two things. Created a folder just for the new version and I logged in as a system admin for my comp to install it
after some research i found out that it is necessary to turn off the firewall and anti virus of the computer while installing SOLIDWORKS,
i had a single user student license.
Firewall and anti virus are not really necessary these days as many anti virus has been certified to keep on while installation but it is better to disable UAC.
You can uninstall completely, then disable UAC, anti virus and firewall (these might help). And then install back. doc to u
Check this doc/post on How to ensure a clean uninstall of SOLIDWORKS
thats fine i will follow the above process but can i re-install solidworks with same license key as obtained before as it was a single user license?
Yes you should be able to use the same key on same machine
i followed all of the above steps still the software's not working......
Were you able to install it.
Make sure you have admin rights when you install. Right click on the setup file and select properties. Make sure it is unblocked (you'll see unblock in properties window if it is not unblocked). Check for the comparability option in the properties window and make sure those settings are correct.
if you double click on solidworks and it is not open
uninstall c++2008 and instal from
sometimes this works
It definitely worked for me, sağolasın kardeş
Doğrumu kardeş düzeldimi?
Could you try running SLDWORKS.exe from the install directory and see what happens? It is generally in “C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks”. Do you see any error message window?
