Transfer option in assembly

Hello,

 

Starting a few days ago, on a PC I have a strange issue : the "Transfer" option from Assembly environment doesn't work anymore. You can select the components, hit the "Transfer" button, but the browsing tree where to select the assembly where you want to trasnfer / moves the components doesn't show. To "close" this operation most of the times...we have to use End Task... to kill the process. 

We try to make a fresh / clean instalation of Solid Edge, but we still have the error.

If I have to make a bet : registry or a windows up-date? 

I would appreciate any suggestion / idea.

 

Cheers!

Hi @chiosa_ciprian

 

 

 

the first step I would try is to clean/delete/rename the Current user registry  of Solid Edge

 

As always "Changes of the registry always are on Your own risc"

To add to @hawcad's post:

 

Perhaps you could try deleting or renaming the following from your registry:

hkey_current_user\software\unigraphics solutions\solid edge

Export the registry entry first as a backup if in doubt. The next time you start SE this registry entry will be recreated.

You will need to restore your themes, restore file locations settings (options.xml, etc.), and point to default templates in helpers.

 

It might solve your problem. Or it might not. But it's often a basic first attempt.

Sounds like the dialog window is opening on a secondary monitor...

On this PC we have only one monitor. 

Thanks.

If you delete the entire registry hive for 'Solid Edge' or 'Version 108' it will reset the Transfer dialog location, but you will lose any settings or customizations. Instead:

 

run regedit.exe

browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 108\Assembly

select and DELETE 'TransferDlg'

restart Solid Edg

Hello,

Thank you @andersj. I confirm that this solution works flawless.

Now I have that PC back in production. 

Thank you all!

 

Have a nice day!

Re: Transfer option in assembly

Hello,

 

Well, after a period of time ...the error is back. But not only on one PC (as it was before) now we experience it on several  PC's - 3. I tried the solution with registry editor, it works for I don't know...2-3 days, then it's missing again.

 

Any idea / solution to fix it once and for all?

 

Thanks.

HI @chiosa_ciprian

 

 

is IT saving/restoring back any user registries or other user data during login?

 

For me it sounds as if there will be an old regsitry setting being restored so that this issue occurs.

Re: Transfer option in assembly

No, as far as I know. And it seems strange that the error occurs only on a few PC - as I mentioned 3. We have about 15 PC's that are using Solid Edge. It started with one (when I first open this discussion), a few months ago another one, and from Firday another one. After I make the registry settings, it works for I don't know... 2-3 days, then is missing again.

Thanks.
