Has anybody been able to use wget to download SP files? That would certainly be a lot more efficient than the current method.

What makes it more efficient? Can Wget do segmented downloading to get around the 300k/sec throttle?

I'm getting 157+115+ 119 = 391 with wget. I figured out how to do it.
Why? I am sitting at my laptop and my file server is Linux. So I login to the file server through a terminal and initiate a download directly so as not to swamp the network or my laptop. I'll be doing this at work eventually because the Linux box doesn't have a keyboard or screen.
Novell was nice enough to provide wgettable URLs for their ISOs so I could automate the process. I was hoping to do something similar to SW.

Hmmm, on I see only 2006 SP4.0 EV.
I must be missing something or I'm on the 13th floor with Rod Serling.

Too All,
Just loaded It.
Interestingly, My "ship in a bottle" times are a full three seconds faster than with 2005 SP5.
Has anyone else tried this ???

OMB: On my bandwagon: Again, SolidWorks is not doing clear technical report writing of instructions so the users know exactly what is going on.
Geesh!

Also at least one setting gets changed when installing SP4.0 - "Show thumbnail graphics in Windows Explorer" gets turned on if it was off as it always is on my system.
Stuff it - I'm rolling back to 3.4 and waiting for SP4.1

The unfortunate thing about sp for solos or small companies is that applying one can impact badly on productivity if you run into problems...unfortunately also you really can't tell how things are until you try it with your work.Been there done that....sympathies...

I've been pushing it hard all day and it has worked very well. No complaints here.
PS - time to go home........

John,
One of the things about this kind of error is that 4.0 could be catching an error that an earlier SP made and didn't complain about. In other words the error was in the earlier SP and is now coming to light. Just a possibility.

Yup just tested on a machine with SP3.4 the error is there as well.
I have just created a part called errordemo if someone would like to confirm the issue, please email me I'll send it. Unsurpress the last cut extrude, this will cause an error with previous feature in the tree the hole wizard cosmetic thread. If you then roll up the tree to before the cut extrude and roll down again the error resolves itself. Pressing CTRL Q will recreate the error.

I just downloaded the SP and am installing it now. We always have problems upgrading one engineer's SolidWorks installation. His computer never recognizes the SolidWorks disks. Wish me luck.

Paul,
My dual Opteron 248 was running at about 30 seconds with 2005. With 2006 SP4 it's 27seconds

I used to have this problem thanks to this group it's easily solved. After running the sw2006-3.4-4.0-i.exe cancel out of the install when it can't find the disks.Go to the directory where the SP unzipped eg ?:\sw2006-3.4-4.0-iand run the sw2006-3.4-4.0-i.msp instead of the .exe file and the problem was solved for me at least.

Which is a pretty good time. I think 2006 was in general a tad bit faster than 2005, but slower than 2004.
