Femap freezing

I've been having a problem with Femap 11.1 freezing at seemingly random times. The most common occasion is when I am manipulating the model in space with my 3DConnexion mouse. It is a problem that I have encountered with 10.X versions, almost not at all with 11.0, and now it's almost daily with 11.1. In the past, I've left Femap to its own devices for 20 or 30 minutes, but it just stayed frozen and I had to end it via the task manager.

 

Has anyone else had this problem?

Contact me at the office, I have a patch that fixes this for v11.1.1.  The 3D Connexion drivers through in some changes, and together withe some transformation issues in our code, this freeze can now happen.  We've fixed this and recently tested with two customers in Europe who were having the same problem and it is fixed.

I am having this problem with 11.0.1. Is there a way I can access the download link or download from somewhere else?

Just started using 11.2 yesterday and it has frozen twice this morning. The first time it froze I did not even have a file open! I just fired it up and went to un-maximise the window so that I could shift it over to my other monitor and hello, frozen!

Such a shame, Femap has been utterly rock-solid up until this version! I don't have time for this crap -- I will use the trusty 11.1.2 until such time as some resolution on this is obtained.

There's no patch for v11.0.1, you'll have to move to v11.1.2 or v11.2.

Hello,

does the patch work in Femap 11.1.0?

Thanks,

No, it's for v11.1.1, or it's already included in v11.1.2.  Any v11.1.x's are 100% licensing and database compatiable, so the best bet is to just insall v11.1.2.

Thanks,

For ease of clarification, I encountered the problem of Femap freezing with 3d mouse only few days ago when I upgraded from a Windows Vista 64 pc to Windows 7 64 bit.

Despite the bad reputation of Windows Vista, Femap never freezed...
