    I been running DesignSpark Mechanical (DSM) on Windows 10 64 Bit with no problems


    Then it stopped working.   

    I updated everything etc but still no luck.. UNTIL  I installed the 32 Bit version and this seems to be running?   All other software seems to be working ok on my Windows 10 machine.

    A Unsupported Warning comes up on the 32 Bit machine but I will ignore.

    I am not sure how or why this is happened?

    Managed to get it going by deleting ALL Space Claim Files from previous install.    I had not noticed  !!

    The user.config file solution was the right one for me.
    Thank you very much.

    I tried this but the \AppData\Local\SpaceClaim directory was not created during the installation in my PC. What can I do?

    I started having a problem today where DS Mechanical would crash after half a minute of working.

    I'm using Windows 10 and 64 bit DS M.

    Fail: Removing the config file didn't fix it.

    Fail: Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't fix it.

    Success: Uninstalling 64 bit and installing 32 bit version seems to have solved it.
