To all SOLIDWORKS Users and Administrators,
I’d like to make sure you are aware of a critical hotfix that is available for SolidWorks. This hotfix addresses a critical issue that could cause unrecoverable damage to your files and operating system. The reach of this issue has been extremely limited, but do to the critical nature of the issue I wanted to reiterate that you read through the following SOLIDWORKS Technical Alert to see if it applies to your organization. Look for the alert on the customer bulletins page below under “Critical Hotfix for PhotoWorks 64 bit”.
You can find instructions on running the hotfix on the SOLIDWORKS Forums at:
Over the past couple of days SOLIDWORKS has been very proactive in communicating this to customers. But, on the chance that you haven’t heard, I wanted to post it here as well.
