I don't know if anyone else is seeing this issue or not but here's what i experienced.

I started up my computer this morning and windows started updating, i let it do its work because its usually necessary and non detrimental. I could not use or create any drawings, my program was highly unstable, and my support representative actually crashed SW with the escape key. needless to say i reverted back to the older version of windows (which is apparently only an option for 10 days after the update) and now everything is working fine. I am running solidworks 2018 sp0.1 on windows 10 with a Boxx APEX2. I hope this can help someone before they spend 8 hours on it like i did today.

Re: 11/20/17 windows 10 update no good for SW

I am having Solid Works 2018 sp0.1 on windows 10. So far I have no complain. If you are precise about your problem I can check. I do know whether I got the latest update.
