I would have removed them too if this was my computer. I doubt you deliberately installed any of them, do you recognize them?

Also, C:\Windows\kmsem\KMService.exe (which should be deleted now) - looks like a Windows/Office/Authentication Crack/Hack.

Mark, I tried looking around on the solidworks site to see if any one else there had a similar problem but every time I searched they wanted me to sign/log-in; I could manually search but after "tens of pages" I didn't see anything so I couldn't find out anything there.

I noticed you did have some bad malware with the scans gokay asked you to run and even though you removed all that was found, there could still be more that is harder to find. The malware could be the reason for the side by side error and if that's the case it may be easier to correct your problem with an image backup if you have one, in lieu of that a clean install or factory restore would be next.

Read Kosh Vorlon's answer here and pay particular attention to the second and third paragraphs. We could ask you to run an SFC scan, gather up the CBS files and have NoelDP look at them to try and create a fix that may or may not work, this would involve at least two more days and you needed this program "three days ago".

The only thing I can think of at this point is maybe, "maybe" you tried to install a x64 program on your x32 machine in which case I would d/l'd the correct bit version, uninstall what you have now and reinstall the correct version to see if that works and install "as administrator".

Here is one area I didn't have to sign-in, See: http://You can install SolidWorks on an individual computer using several installation methods. | help.solidworks.com/2014

You haven't answered my two previous questions from post #4:
Quote:
  • When you installed "this program you need" did you notice if it asked you to install any C++ or .NET packs? If it did and you did not I would try uninstalling the said program and then while reinstalling add those packs that it needs.
  • Finally, Make sure you have the .NET feature turned on; Go to Windows Features - Turn On or Off and find the box for .NET 3.5.1 and put a check in its box. You can safely uncheck the two features that are listed under it unless this "program you need" has anything to do with Windows Communication Foundation HTTP activation.
Have you tried asking on the solidworks forum for help?

Two things.

1.) I would say your USB drive has been compromised, and

2.) It sounds like you are trying to install software that you obtained surreptitiously. You may want to talk with your friend on how s/he installed it on his/her machine.

From what I understand from OP's latest post, he isn't even installing the program. Merely copy-pasting another installation and I agree with Anak regards to non-genuine software. I already hinted on this in a previous post.

GokAy, there is a slight language barrier here, thanks for reading between the lines.

If Mark is just doing a copy/paste the program will definitely not work. There are changes made to the operating system (OS) during the installation of a program that never show in the program's Folder.
