So here is the skinny. Love windows 10 LOVE IT!


But it updates and then my SolidWorks install ends up giving me this error and not starting


Could not load SOLIDWORKS DLL: sldsearchu.dll.


I have tried re-registering the file but it wont let me, tried a repair install with no luck, tried uninstalling (Thank god it asks to return licence before the uninstall other wise I would be hooped with too many machines) and re-installing and I get the same error.


Google search showed me this as the best answer:

How To Fix Sldsearchu.dll is Missing / Not Found Error


But nothing there fixed the error,


Then tried this


No dice.


Any other suggestions before I delete windows 10 install it again and start from scratch again. This will be the second time.
