"Oops, something went Wrong" Error When Opening or Creating Projects in Visualize

Jesse Haworth

This article walks through the steps needed to resolve the "Oops, something went Wrong" error that can cause Visualize to crash during the process of opening or starting a Project in SOLIDWORKS Visualize.

 

 

This particular issue can be associated with corrupt settings within Visualize. For troubleshooting, it is recommended to follow the steps listed below.

 

1. Ensure that Visualize is shut down.

2. Enable hidden files and folders within Windows Explorer. This can be accomplished in your version of Windows by following the associated steps here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14201/windows-show-hidden-files

3. Once hidden files and folders are accessible, navigate to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\SolidWorks, where USERNAME is the name of your Windows profile. You should see a folder named "Visualize" located here, as shown below.

 

 

4. Rename this folder to "Visualize-OLD" without quotations. If you are running Visualize 2017, you'll have to rename the "Solidworks Visualize 2017" folder as well.

 

 

5. Retest the process of creating or opening a Project in Visualize.

    If the instructions in this guide do not resolve the issue, you can try a more stringent reset here:

     

    Rename the following folders by appending "-old" to the end of the folder names:

    1. Open Windows Explorer -> Rename the "Solidworks Visualize Content" folder. This is folder is most commonly found in your "My Documents" folder. 
    2. In Windows Explorer -> paste this destination into the address bar: "%PROGRAMDATA%\SOLIDWORKS" and Rename the "Solidworks Visualize 2018" folder
    3. In Windows Explorer -> paste this destination into the address bar: "%LOCALAPPDATA%\SOLIDWORKS" and Rename the "Solidworks Visualize 2018" folder
    4. In Windows Explorer -> paste this destination into the address bar: "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Dassault_Systèmes\" and Rename the "SLDWORKSVisualize.exe_StrongName_..." folder
