All of the systems that run Solidworks 2008 SP1.1 at our building have an issue crashing when trying to update an assembly or running the Rx tool. I would get an error about missing dll's or a memory error and then the systems would crash. All of these systems were upgraded from SW 2007 SP2 to SW 2008 SP1.1.
Below is a quick fix. I hope it helps!
- Copy .dlls to c:\windows\system32
- Delete C:\Program Files\SolidWorks\sldrx\sldrx.exe.manifest file
- Rename ConisioCAD.dll and PDMSW.dll to .old, located in C:\Program Files\PDMWorks Enterprise folder
- Copy ConisioCAD.dll and PDMSW.dll to C:\Program Files\PDMWorks Enterprise
- Reboot Computer
You can get the ConisioCAD.dll and PDMSW.dll from the SW CD or call your VAR for a new version of this file.
The zlib.dll is found in C:\Program Files\SolidWorks\sldrx
