Improved SOLIDWORKS Error Report Dialog Box

If the SOLIDWORKS software crashes, an improved SOLIDWORKS Error Report dialog box gives you more options for notifying Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corporation of the problem and recovering your work when you restart.

From the dialog box, you can:

  • Preview the error report.
  • Choose whether to send a crash report to DS SolidWorks.

    When a crash occurs, a report is sent to DS SolidWorks by default. By clearing Send a crash report to SOLIDWORKS, you can turn off this behavior.

    If you send a crash report, you can add details of your actions before and when the crash occurred.

  • Indicate whether you have experienced a previous crash in the same context.
  • Run the SOLIDWORKS RX diagnostic tool.
  • Connect to SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD Support.
  • Restart SOLIDWORKS.

    If recovery data is available, SOLIDWORKS attempts to recover your work.

  • View the SOLIDWORKS Privacy Policy.

To close the dialog box, click Done.
