Installation Errors/Installation Cancelled

The installation has encountered an error or was cancelled.

If an error or cancellation occurs:
  • Products that installed before the error or cancellation remain on the computer.
  • The product that was being installed at the time of the cancellation is rolled back, if possible, so that there are no partial installations.
  • Remaining products are not installed or uninstalled. A list is provided under Not Yet Attempted.

    To resume installing or uninstalling these products, click the link provided.

SolidWorks Installation Manager first installs any prerequisites that are not installed on the computer, such as .NET framework. It then installs the selected products in this order:
  1. SolidWorks
  2. eDrawings
  3. SolidWorks Search
  4. SolidWorks Explorer/Workgroup PDM
  5. PhotoView 360
  6. SolidWorks Flow Simulation
