    Just installed Solidworks on my machine again last week and the random BSOD has happened like three times already.

    File based systems... Arrgg

    All I did was re-name the purple bracket holing the guide rail.
    Then it broke all of the mates attached to it for some reason.

    So I deleted the mates and re-mated them. Then I switched to the extended configuration (which only extends one part that isn't associated with the guide rail... and THAT is broken still.

    So, the fix was to delete the configuration and re-make it.
    So stupid.

    Also broke the drawing...

    I've renamed parts the same way I've been doing it for years, nothing special here. Just the most basic file associations are so unstable.

    Or, better yet.
    Changed the paint color in the part properties, and it invalidated the dimensions and shot one far out...
    What trashware...
