Hi All,   For good performance, someone advised to select the Use Software OpenGL under System Options/Performance/Use Software OpenGL. But Software OpenGL is greyed out in my Solidworks and I cannot do any changes to it. Any advice please?   Regards, LS

Over the past two days, I have had to manually reactivate our SolidWorks licenses on our network server.  FlexLM is working fine, as we have another application also running on FlexLM.  Seems to happen at random times, I'm currently babysitting the License Manager, waiting for it to deactivate again.  Has anyone else experienced this issue, when… (Show more)
