SolidWorks 2010 is not responding

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I upgraded my OS to Windows 7 and then installed SolidWorks 2010 for doing my work. And then, I upgraded to SW2011 for a client. Since then, I started receiving a message:


SldWorks is not responding

Windows is checking for a solution to the problem…


I could not access my work and the program just stops on responding. When I click on the Cancel button, the message will just disappear and then I have to restart my computer to access it again.

What seems to be the problem?

What should I do?
