Hi folks

 

I have just started a course in SWX.

My machine is Intel Core i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz, 8,0GB RAM, MS Windows 7 Home Premium v. 6.1 64-bit SP1

Intel HD Graphics and  RealTek High Definintion Audio on Motherboard MSI B75MA-P45

I have Windows Defender as Anti-virus with Memeo Backup Pro, and Skype running in the background.

 

I have installed SWX 2014-2015 Student Version which has these files in Task Manager as normal:

When I start SWX I get this message:

_Solidworks_Error_Msg.png

 

I click OK and start the first tutorial and draw my first part - all okay so far:

I go on to create a new drawing following the tutorial:

but when I take step five all comes to a halt because I cannot select anything:

Most frustrating!  Here is me enthusiastically spending my Easter getting a grip on some basics in SWX and  ...  well, a snag.

 

Please, what is wrong, and how do I fix it?
