2015 Solidworks has stopped working

Question asked by Josh Wood on Jul 24, 2015


quadro k1000m

I have a user who keeps getting the error "SOLIDWORKS 2015 has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."


This error occurs randomly, but fairly often.


Have performed a clean uninstall/reinstall

Have made the reg changes to the GDI objects, the computer never gets above 5k GDI objects

Have changed the Virtual Memory/adjusted windows for best performance

Have followed the Optimizing Solidworks pdf that is floating around the web.


Any other ideas?
