4. Allow the System Information capture to complete.

6. Select Package files now; this will collect the Windows and SOLIDWORKS logs of your System and the Crash, as well as any files involved.

7. This will prompt you to save the file, select somewhere appropriate.

8. Send the file to and include a description of the problem and your contact information.

Once we have received the RX file and your information we will endeavour to check the crash data and system information through as quickly as possible. We will subsequently be in contact with you with a resolution or at least a direction in which we can start diagnosing.
