I got this mesg each time starting SW and am not sure what it means
Anyone please explain?
Looking thru the Knowledge Base, it seems to be related to EPDM add-in. Do you've EPDM installed? If yes then uncheck that under Tools > Add-in and see if you get rid of the message.
It could also be related to what add-in you've selected under Tools > Add-in as those might be taking some time to load and hence the message. With SW2015, you can check as which one is taking most time to load and you can uncheck that. In case you're lower version then uncheck all of them as then check one-by-one to see which one is taking most time to load as that could be the one for this message.
Thank you Deepak - I'm not using ePDM - Here is the screenshot of my add-ins diglog box
One of the ongoing complaints of users is how long SolidWorks takes to load, so they added this "warning" about how addins are slowing the loading process; To the far right, you should see load times for each addin. Addins like PhotoView360, Simulation, etcetera, don't really need to be active all the time. I activate them only when I need them, thereby speeding up my load time.
Thanks - it's good points, Jeff
Just installed and haven't paid much attention on the add-ins options
As stated earlier, those options are with SW2015 and onwards
Could be one of these add-in. Try unchecking these and see if that helps. Also if you keep seeing this message, please report to your VAR.
I too get that annoying little message every single time.
If anyone knows of a way to switch it off for good I would love to hear it.
The reason I get that message?
Yep, it's because the routing add-in takes 4seconds to load.
The routing add-in is why we're using SW in the first place, so you can imagine that I find it ridiculous to be told time and time again that it takes a bit to load it.
Again an improvement that most of use could very well do without.
