I am a computer tech with a user who is having multiple problems with Solidworks 2003. I am no Solidworks expert by any means. He has the following for a computer:
P4 2.4 GHz1,024 MB of PC2100 RAM 32.0 GB Hard drive 533 MHz Front side Bus Nvidia Quadro 4 (990XGL or somthing like that) for video 5,000 MB swap file running Windows 2000 SP4
He works from his hard drive (not the network). His assemblies contain about 1750 parts. He has many problems saving. Usually "Solidworks is unable to obtain the required memory". Is this normal? I have talked with our Solidworks reseller and they don't have a clue. He is on the newest service pack so that is no option. What can he or I do to take care of this. I was looking to get two 1 gig RAM chips but they are $1300.00 a piece. That really isn't an option. If you have any ideas please let me know.
