Anybody want to weigh in on using a shared toolbox in PDM vs. having a toolbox on each person's client? We have 4-5 installations of Solidworks using a license server. What are the pros and cons? Seems like having a shared toolbox would be a good thing but I have been learning that sometimes setting stuff like this up complicates management of installations when it comes to upgrading to next years version.

Hi, After many years of use my hard drive crashed.I have reloaded Win10 onto an SSD and is re-activated, everything else remains the same, however Solidworks 2010 fails when asked to load from disc and search for updates latter.. Welcome to the forum. You'll probably need to contact the VAR you purchased the SW2010 from to have them release the license from the previous hard drive.

Hi I am looking to apply the 'SolidWorks' settings in the nVidia Control Panel, but there is no SolidWorks listed in the program listing. It's not under Dassault Systemes either; all I can find is 'Dassault Systemes - CATIA compatible'.

How do i share the downloaded files of solidworks from one pc to another? (I do have the serial numbers for it) The best way to do this is with the Download and Share all files option in the Installation Manager.

I am not an IT guy so please talk slow and explain it to a dumb guy if you have help. This is what I know, I am at home to day and needed to use solid works so I connected to my work net work with VPN and tried to open solidworks It could not find the License manager. So I called my IT department and they verified that my IP address was on the net work. When I asked why I could not get a license of solidworks they said they have tried this before and could do it, and told me to drive in to

Reset Installation Manager I was installing SW 16 but it was interrupted. Now it doesn't reinstall saying that toolbox installation directory is not found (it was deleted) and it doesn't give me the option to change the directory.

My philosophy has been buy the best computer with room for upgrades and keep it for a long time. I currently run a Dell T5400 with Dual Xeon Quad cores at 2.5 Ghz that is now 10 years old and showing it's age. I do quite a bit with Solidworks, but also many other apps at the same time (ERP system, SQL DB work, MS Office, etc).

I am trying to purchase a new computer to run SW 2018. Thus far I am not having much success. I have been looking at a number of new computers and apparently the video graphics cards that are in them are not compatible with Solidworks. I tried to find a computer (laptop) that is in the lists on SW's system requirements search under "Graphics Driver".

We recently upgraded from SW2014 SP3.0 to SW2015 SP3.0. We used Copy Settings Wizard to save everyone's settings before we installed SW2015 SP3.0. When we restored the settings in SW2015, the mouse gestures were still at the factory settings. Everything else came across and only had to change a few file locations.
