I installed Solid Works 2015 Student Edition on Win 7 ( 64 bit). None of the links in the "Getting Started" menu work.
John Callas: Problem solved. The uninstall and reinstall worked. I hope that I have updated this thread correctly. (I rely have no clue on how to use this form.) How do I mark as closed?

You just pick an answer as correct. That will not close the thread, but it will tell people you found a solution in case they need it.
It might be because of a Windows Update.

Thank you for your reply.
1. To avoid confusion, my name is John C. When I opened my account my name was changed by the system to Frank Fuller. This has been corrected.
2. I am new to forums and not sure if I am using the system correctly or replying correctly.
3. I installed Solid Works Student Edition after KB3072630 had been applied to my system. I followed the steps given in link ( Re: KB3072630 Windows update causing add in issues ). Then ran Solid Works repair. Problem was not corrected.
I am running Windows 7 Pro. with SP1 on a 64 bit Dell Optiplex 760 with 8 Gig of RAM.
Additional errors are:
1. Can't create global variables (GV) for equations or dimensions. When I try to create GV, I am prompted "Create a new global named ...". I reply yes, but the Equation does not appear in the "Features Manager Tree". If I open the Equation editor, my variable is not there.
2. When Solid Works starts I, get an entry in the Window's Application Log file stating that there was an errors in swvbaserver.exe.
3. When I open an assembly, I get a warning dialog box stating that GdtAnalysisSupport.dll could not be loaded.
Thank you again for the help.
1. Uninstall Solidworks
2. Uninstall KB3072630
3. Restart/Boot windows
4. Re-install Solidworks.
Order is important because there have been issues if KB307260 is removed first.
The fix stated here Re: KB3072630 Windows update causing add in issues suggested temporally deactivating KB3072630 via a registry update, then running the Solidworks fix tool. This did not work for me.
Thank you for your help.
