SOLIDWORKS Hangs when enabling Toolbox Add-ins

Stephanie Rodas

There is a known issue in SOLIDWORKS 2017, where enabling the Toolbox Add-ins causes SOLIDWORKS to hang. This issue is reported in the Software Performance Report (SPR) 1002311 and will be implemented in SOLIDWORKS 2018 b1.

SYMPTOMS:

Enabling the Toolbox or Toolbox Utilities Add-in from either the Command Manager or Tools>Add-ins, will cause SOLIDWORKS to hang.   

WORKAROUND:

The solution to this issue is to close the SOLIDWORKS application and delete the "tb_default.sldedb" file from C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\SOLIDWORKS\SOLIDWORKS 2017\Toolbox\data. When you open SOLIDWORKS and enable the Toolbox Add-ins a new "tb_default.sldedb" file will be created.
