Server Busy starting Build Checks
3 years ago

When I go to "Build Checks" in Solidworks I get an error message when the Design Checker window opens stating, "This action cannot be complet becasue the other program is busy. Choose "Switch To" to activate the busy program and correct the problem"


I've tried restarting and numorous other things to try and fix this but no luck. Does this program rely on another program to run? I occasionally get this message when using design tables but starting excel before doing so usually fixes this problem.


Thanks in advance - Craig

I am getting the same error. Did you ever get to the bottom of it?

See Andrew Moore's posted solution here.


I got mine working by pressing the "Retry" button every few minutes until the window went away (no need to click incessantly); then, I unselected the "Show every startup" checkbox, dealt with the "Retry" button a few minutes longer, and haven't seen the problem since!

Same problem and this seems to be working for me.
