Solved! Go to solution



When i create any assembly or any solid edge doc, the icon of it on my computer appears to be a black screen. I need to see the part or asssembly image as an icon.

Is there any settings for it?

Kindly help.

Hi Ashish:


From the Solid Edge Application menu, select Properties and from the Preview tab, create or save a preview. See if this helps.

Hi @iashishsarode1,


I recall this was an issue early on, with Windows 10, which I assume you are seeing this on, ...and there was a maintenance pack, I don't rememember which one, that corrected it.


What SE version & MP are you using?....and which Windows version?

Re: Icon

My answer seems more like a workaround or quick fix.

Ashish you should really look into the suggestion by @SeanCresswell and get to the root-cause of the problem and check for the maintenance pack for a permanent solution.
