SW2015 Crashes on "Create new Document"

I have just installed the student version SW2015 and right after install I started the program, I go to create a new document and I get an immediate crash of SW2015.

Every time I try to create a new document I get "Solidworks 2015 has encountered a problem and needs to restart".

The install and activation went smoothly so I cannot tell if it is something hardware related or with SW.

The Windows 7 64 bit is a new install with SP1 and all the updates. I have also disabled the antivirus and restarted the computer and I encounter the same crash on "Create new document".


I have a:

quad core i7 2.8GHz

24G Ram

nVidia GTX 770 2GRam


Any help would be greatly appreciated as I cannot start doing anything.


Thank you.
