Launcher was able to find the location of SOLIDWORKS executable in registry, but sldworks.exe was not found at that location.

2. Make sure the .NET Framework 3.5 version is installed and enabled on the system.

3.  Restart the system. Then login to the system with Administrator rights and reinstall CAMWorks Solids. 

 

Solution 2 - VSTA

1. Uninstall the existing version(s) of the VSTA

- Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Applications

- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VSTA

- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VSTAHostConfig

Renamed as:

- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VSTA_OLD

- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VSTAHostConfig_OLD
