Hello, i am a student and as part of a class I'm taking we received SolidWorks Student Design Kit 2006 to work from home.
the problem is after successfully installing SolidWorks (from the downloaded 1.2GB file) when i try to run SolidWorks the computer "thinks" for a few seconds and then nothing happens as if i didn't open the app at all. no logo, no window, no error, no log, solid.exe process appears for a few seconds in the Task Manager and then disappears.
Please help. I'm using an LG LS55 notebook (512Mb RAM, 1.73 GHz, ATI Radeon Mobility X300 with correct driver version - as listed at systematic), WinXP Pro SP2, IE7.
when running SolidRX to diagnose - everything is fine. trying to run in 'Software OpenGL Mode' ends up just the same.
What is going on??? Please help - i need it to work for my assignments.
