Hi guys

 

I'm having the “There was a Problem Sending the Command to the Program” message when i try to open the Revision Manager by the right-click menu over a SE file. 

 

Then, my first attempt was 're-assign' the Revision Manager in the 'Open With' option for the file ... But I can find the correct executable for Revision Manager. Which .EXE from SE folder should I point to?

 

And I don't see a shortcut for RM on SE folder by the Start menu. It could be done for help in future? Or it will only work with the right-click menu way ?

 

Thanks for advices

- The executable you are looking for is called iCnct.exe and is in one of the C:\Program Files\Solid Edge STx subfolders, but I doubt reassigning file extensions will help.

- Can you send a file to RevMan using the right-click menu in Windows Explorer if it has no spaces in the path/file name, like c:\test.par?

- If you can't get the right-click menu to work, you can open View and Markup from your Start Menu. From within the app you can open any SE file in Revision Manager mode.

Thanks for the reply, @vongahlen

 

Yeah, the reassignment did not take effect. (And I even tried to execute it by command line, and also nothing happens)

 

Both no-spaces and normal file names didnt open (Windows take some time, like searching something in memory - no disk activity), and just the error messa shows up.

 

In my case, I had same behaviour with View and Markup (even clicking on the shortcut link, it didnt open, so I could not try open RM from there).

 

But I think in my case it was related to something inside Windows.  I made a deep registry and files cleanup with CCleaner and TFC (another smart system's temporary folders cleaner) apps. 

 

Then, after this and a fresh reboot, the RM (and View and Markup) works as it should.

 

(Note: Before all that I ran the SFC tool (sfc /scannow) and Repaired Solid Edge installation (by the Control Panel) and nothing had changed too)

Glad you got it fixed

 

Just something to note- I've heard of two separate instances where using CCleaner actually harmed a previously working Solid Edge installation.
