I installed 2D Drafting yesterday for the first time on a Lenovo laptop Windows 8Pro.
Opened the program, did a simple sketch and nosed around the functionality, and closed the program overnight.
This morning the program wont launch.
I get the Siemens Pictorial box first off, and then the page opens up to full screen, but mainly 'greyed' out, with a white section top left, a yellow border, and the minimize or close icons can't be used.
Task Manager says 'not responding' and that doesn't change however long it is left.
I have uninstalled and re-installed, but haven't been able to open the program again.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please see 2 pics attached.
The 2nd screen is what it refuses to budge from, unless forced to close from task manager.
Its a brand new Lenovo T540p lap top.
I've also attached some info about the graphics/drivers - I don't know whether this is what is being asked for? or is it something else?
Yes,....great details on your system & issue.
It is unfortunate & strange you're having this problem, as it seems like a completely capable system.
Are all Windows updates applied? [have you considered updating to Windows10?] ....does your user account have Administrator privileges??
Uodates - I thought so, but will check again.
Windows 10 - not yet.....
Administrator rights - yes.
The weird thing is that it worked perfectly the first time.
Reset the Solid Edge user preferences.
In Windows Explorer delete the following folder: %APPDATA%/Unigraphics Solutions
In regedit delete the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge
If resetting the above does not resolve the issue, then manually set the backing store by adding/setting the following key values (registry file for your convenience attached):
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 108\PrefSets\Options-View]
