After I start SolidWorks and try to launch Rapid Design, I get an error to “Please start SOLIDWORKS first”
How do I resolve this? I  currently have SW2018 SP5.0 installed.

Hi Bob,
I would recommend to start inCAD Components from the “Tools” menu directly in SOLIDWORKS.
If this does not work, please email the tech support team at to troubleshoot.
Thank you!

Hi Carlicia,
Solid works was open and I did select the program from the “Tools”. That is the message I got. I have emailed the rapiddesign several time and have had no response.
