    Why the bloody hell does that work, I purposefully uninstalled Bonjour because I have no use for anything Apple [EVER], tried to render today, the above problem occurred, saw your post, re-installed, now i'm rendering as I reply.

    ...But now I have to have Apple software that I didn't ever want, (and hoped never needed), why does this have any effect on solidworks, rendering, and how the hell do I remove it without killing rendering?!?!?! >.<

    In my opinon the ( not helpful icon) is a worthless part of helping someone. if it works , great. if not,try something else. if you think its wrong, then add your own Idea and move on.
