Only solid edge thumbnails do not display.

hey guys, my boss's computer has a full version of solid edge, but none of the s/e thumbnails display in the preview pane in windows

works perfectly fine on my machine and other machines. just his.

its like the s/e extension are just not recognized by windows

has anyone had this issue before?

Re: Only solid edge thumbnails do not display.

so after a little investigating i found that my machine has registery keys associated with the s/e files that my bosses computer does not have.

so im assuming that why windows cant display the files. it doesnt know how to handle them.

any suggestions on how to add the correct registry keys???

Perhaps you could try deleting the following from your registry:

hkey_current_user\software\unigraphics solutions\solid edge

Export the registry entry first as a backup. The next time you start SE this registry entry will be recreated. It might solve your problem. Or it might not. It's a little quicker than a reinstall.
