SolidWorks SPR’s are now Confidential Information

I just realized that the SolidWorks Software Performance Reports (an elegant term for “bug”) are now considered confidential information and you are made to click-accept a non-disclosure agreement before accessing the SPR database.

I wonder why. Probably because SolidWorks found too many people bad mouthing their software and had the SPR numbers to back their claims.

And that’s precisely why it is a good habit to read those long and pesky click-through agreements. I know they are a pain and come in the way of your work. But understanding what you are agreeing to is equally important and can save you a lot of trouble down the line.
