This is too funny...Installation problems with a bootleg copy of SW. I hope this is someone's idea of a joke, or it's real sad. :)

E-mail Solidworks with your problem...I'm sure they'd be helpful...

Scott - your right

Thankgod there is at least some justice in this world - it would just be too much if there were NO installation problems with bootleg versions of sw2005.

However ity is very annoying as I assume that there are no bugs in the bootleg versions, because very few people seem to ask about problems with bootleg versions !! :-)

If this NG is your last hope then I suggest you are really at the end of the line.

Hello! SW install works fine for me keep trying, make sure though that you have a frypan handy. this will be useful to hit yourself above the earhole when you realise you are such a clod. this approach has the advantage that you will get all your frustration with SW 05 over in one go rather than at each sp release. hope this helps neil

Better yet try formating C:. If that does not work buy a new computer.
