I've downloaded the SolidSquad Activator for Solidworks 2018. After disconnecting from the internet and successfully changing the series numbers, I am unable to edit the registry. The software quotes error 6, but I've been unable to find any documentation.
Users who have installed or updated SOLIDWORKS afterKB3072630 was applied where SOLIDWORKS was installed using the standalone installation method.Your SOLIDWORKS installation is likely to be unstable and subsequent uninstallation will likely fail. We recommend the following method to repair your SOLIDWORKS installation:
Please start Solver by double-clicking on the SOLIDWORKS icon on your desktop. This will start the SOLIDWORKS application automatically without any user interaction. NOTE: Solver may also start if you click on the SOLIDWORKS icon in the taskbar.
The SOLIDWORKS application window should appear and then remain black for several minutes while the SOLIDWORKS application is processing and loading data. When SOLIDWORKS is ready, the SOLIDWORKS startup splash screen will appear.
At this point, an initial screen will appear, listing the applications already installed on the computer and prompting you to locate the SOLIDWORKS application. When you click Next, you will arrive at the SOLIDWORKS HOME page, as shown in the image below.
By default, all documents and drawings that are opened in SOLIDWORKS are stored in the Temporary folder in the default directory for your user profile on the computer where SOLIDWORKS was installed. You can change the default location in the Preferences dialog, under Documents -> Binary Files. 3d9ccd7d82
