Quick Fix for SOLIDWORKS Installation Error

September 9th, 2015 by Nic Rady

On July 15th 2015, Microsoft released a new Windows Update that has caused a single dll to not be properly installed, causing a SOLIDWORKS installation error.

Without this dll, you may experience problems with the add-ins not showing up, macros causing SOLIDWORKS to crash, or an error message to pop-up when opening files in SOLIDWORKS.

Recently, during an installation, SOLIDWORKS posted a message explaining the problem with solutions on how to make sure that the installation will succeed.

We at GoEngineer want to make it as easy on our customers as possible. So while the SOLIDWORKS developers are diligently working with Microsoft to fix the installation hiccup, we have created a few files that you can download to make your installation a smoother process.

  • If you are doing a new installation or an upgrade:
    • right-click on the file ‘RunBeforeRepair_’
    • select ‘Run As Administrator’
    • install SOLIDWORKS as normal
    • when finished, right-click on the file ‘RunAfterRepair_’
    • select ‘Run As Administrator’
  • If you ran into an issue after an install or upgrade:

Within just a few minutes, the install issues should be gone.

Please contact our Technical Support Team if you have any further concerns or issues.
