When I updated to Service Pack 3 on Solidworks 2004 I received a message to download a patch for detected K6 processor. Problem one - the link didn't work. Problem 2 - I actually have a XP3000 processor - does it have the same "problem" and why did I get the K6 message?
SolidWorks Patch (v1.3) for Windows 95® and Windows 98® (all versions) On AMD-K6® Processor-based Systems.
"SolidWorks 99" may hang on certain AMD-K6 processor-based systems while performing various modeling and display operations. AMD has developed a patch to address this issue.
Please read the readme.txt file to ensure the correct installation of the patch files.
Please note, this behavior does not occur on all models of the AMD-K6 family. Installation of the patch files, as outlined above, on an AMD-K6 processor-based system that does not require this update, will result in the following message: "The version of the AMD processor in your system does not require this update" Please note further, the AMD Athlon™ processor is not affected by this issue. As a consequence, installation of the patch files, as outlined above, is not required.
If you have any further questions, or need assistance with the installation of these patches, please call the AMD Technical Service Center at 408-749-3060.
