ST9 standard Parts not working

Dear all,


I am trying to set up Standard parts for Solidedge ST9 in my machine,


System configuration:

Wndows 10 Pro, 16 GB Ram, I7 Processor. 


Adding parts in the Standard Parts Administrator was sucessful.


when adding fastner in the assembly,

i select the edge of the hole and the face, but the fastner dialog box doesnt appear.


it appears as small dialog box with - and x (circled in the screen shot).


Any suggestions please.


thank you for your help.


Kind regards

I can't see anything in your photo except part of a redline in the lower left.

Re: ST9 standard Parts not working

My first suggestion is to check your MP version (newest is MP4). Install it in case you haven't done it yet, then empty your temp folder:
- Type in %temp% to Windows Explorer.

- Select all (CTRL+A), delete all (SHIFT+DEL).

- Few instances couldn't be deleted, so just click Ignore on them.

- Try to place fasteners again.


This may not be the solution, but it's recommended to check these in case of unusual software behaviours.

I suggest running regedit.exe from command prompt and looking for following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 109\General\Position\AssemblyComponentSelection & rename it.

Try to run your workflow once again.

Thank you all.


Renaming the registry and clearing the temp worked fine.
