That size bodes well for lots of fixes and indeed if true, I welcome
the arrival from our digital overlords.
I look forward to the reports back from the wild west by the crews of
the Conestoga wagons headed for the new Oregon Territory.
bob z. is downloading the service pack right now and it is only
130MB. Could this have something to do with bob z. not using the
installation manager? Or is it because of the current service pack
(bob z. is on 2.1). Weird stuff!
No John L. is on ADSL 5.8Mbps doesn't take that long to download but why
should I have to. If I was on Dial up it would be quicker to fly to the
States and get a DVD.
John L. is going to bed -- will read a bit of Bill Bryson first, even if it
is midnight here, I could use a bit of humour.
I used the magic installation manager which told me it was going to also
upgrade the DWGeditor and the Help file as they were on SP2.2 when I know
without any doubt WHAT SO EVER that they were on 3.0. When it actually came
to install the DWGeditor the install manager came up with Remove, Repair or
Modify (not what I'd expect on an update) so I hit repair. Guess what after
running the DWGeditor and clicking about it informs me it's on SP3.0
It gets worse:-
The install manager also informed me that PDMWorks server and SolidWorks
Explorer were on SP3.0 and needed to be upgraded to 3.1of course I hit
install. The install window told me it was about to install SP3.0 not 3.1
WTF! at this time I aborted the install went online and manually downloaded
the SP which also, online says it's 3.1. After manually downloading and on
attempting to install PDMWorks Server it informs me that it's installing
SP3.0 --- I think WTF! and hit the Repair option ditto same for SolidWorks
Explorer. On running both PDMWorks admin and SolidWorks Explorer both inform
me they are in fact still SP3.0 WTF!!!!!
So looks like someone has F---- UP, and I being stupid have wasted both
bandwidth and time.
Tired, now, off to bed midnight here in NZ, thanks, SolidWorks, for the
nightmare I'm sure to have.
PS no matter how crappy your day is running SolidWorks, it still beats
working with AutoCad.
John, sorry you had to go through this, but thanks for telling us that
there is something funny going on with this SP in some way.

Since N.Z. is West of me in California, I am always happy to receive
word from SolidWorks Explorers in the Wild West. You indeed saved me
Thanks - Bo
