Useful tips would be like:
- use Windows7 compatibility mode
Does anyone now more?
Use Windows 8 compatibility with SolidWorks 2015 SP4 or earlier to not crash on open or save. But officially do not use for production work as you will not get support from your VAR or SolidWorks running in this environment.
On Windows 10, I was having issues seeing Add-ins (Workgroup PDM). The KB warning did not show up as an installed update. I found the Windows 10 version of the KB update (the warning message lists a different number - probably for Win 7 or Win 8). Unfortunately, that KB did not show on the system. I applied the registry key (see other threads) and it resolved my add-in issue.
I have also had to set the Solidworks executable to Windows 7 or 8 compatibility or I get crashes on most sorts of file I/O.
I am still seeing poor interactivity with my assemblies. I can interact with them and performance is great, but on mouse up, it takes several seconds before I can interact again and the entire desktop seems to lag. Same models on one of my other lower end workstations with Win 7 or 8 are fine. It's possible this is a result of compatibility mode in Windows 10. Hard to say. GPU is Quadro M6000. Driver is 353.62.
