Hi all,

So I am a student using Solidworks and have never had an issue opening Solidworks until today. Most of the day it worked then all of a sudden I got the following message when trying to open Solidworks.

I have read that in the past this was caused by a windows update in which Solidworks was not compatible with. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Solidworks crashing on start up every time

Hi Travis,

So have you checked to see if Windows has indeed done any updates without your approval lately?

Dave,

So I did check and there were a few updates in the past few days. I uninstalled the ones it would allow me to and still no luck. I am not sure what else to try. Is it something I should contact Microsoft or Solidworks about?

 

Thanks

If you are unsure or unable to locate any offending update do you have all of the required information to try a re-install?

I have already tried that as well unfortunately. I completely uninstalled Soldiworks and reinstalled with my antivirus off incase that was causing any issues and still received the same error.
