Solid Edge ST7 installed with no problems at all during installation yet everytime I try to do something like start a new part it just completely closes down. I looked in task manager after this happened but no processes appear there. Also tried oppening existing parts with the same result. Uninstalling and reinstalling did not help either. Apologies if this is the wrong place for this, wasn't sure where to post.
Help much appreciated!
Possibilities could be a bad install or a corrupted registry. You might try uninstalling and performing a SECleanUpAll (found in the download under a folder called SptTools) and then reinstall.
So the corrupted registry thing is a bit harder to fix. You have to use REGEDIT to do this and if you delete the wrong thing you can mess up your PC to the point it may need to have the OS reinstalled, so be carefull!
Deleting the following key will remove all of your registry settings for Solid Edge: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge
If you can start a new Draft document but not a part or assembly I would look at 3D graphics settings.
If this is the case try updating your graphics driver.
There is a text file that will auto-select the settings based on your card.
"C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST7\Program\AutoConfigure.txt"
