unable to register document error

Hi all,
Does anyone know what this error means? I can't open up any of my
drawings, parts, or assemblies without getting this error. Any help?

Just a few thoughts. Do you have a PDM system? Could this error actually be from that in that it's saying it can't log your usage of the file, or something? Maybe the network down? Temp folder on your drive full?

Thanks for replying so quickly.
I'm not running a PDM system. I'm also not sure what you mean about logging usage for the file i want to use. I'm also running on a stand-alone system, the only network system i'm running on is for internet, web, email, usenet, ftp, irc, etc. etc.
i haven't checked my temp folder, but i'll do that as soon as i can let you know if that may be the problem. Thanks again.

well, i check my temp folder and no problems there. i went into solidworks and checked to make sure where the journal file was being made and it has a legitimate directory. i even went so far as to create a new part and save the part and when i tried to save the part, i got the same error message... this is strange indeed.
btw, i have installed sp2 on my xp system and i'm starting to wonder if something got hosed.

This might be a long shot, but there is a know but with another part of SWX that didn't allow for any of the customization to be saved and it was a registry problem. Check to make sure that your registry folders have full permission. The problem was, for some reason, the SWX registry folders were READ-ONLY and this, of course, doesn't allow for writing settings from SWX.
START/RUN/REGEDIT
go to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/SolidWorks and RMB permissions. Maker sure that they are Full control. If it isn't that could be the problem.
Also go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Solidworks and do the same.
This very well might not be the problem, but its worth checking.

Mark,
I'll give that a shot and let you know how it goes... i just don't want to have to reinstall solidworks again... i've had it working fine and then this goes and happens... what a drag...

well, that didn't work, so i just decided to call my var... turns out that if you install windows xp sp2 and you have solidworks installed, sp2 closes certain ports that solidworks needs open... i'm trying to find out from the var what those ports maybe and adjust my firewall accordingly... he also told me that solidworks 2004 sp5.0 will take caer of this problem, but has no idea when it will be out...
