just recently the preview was gone and i cannot find the way to turn it back again like in the second picture
I do not know what happens but after i repair installation of Solidworks, HSMworks and rollback Windows update the icon returns to normal
Unfortunately this could be a number of things, the first things to try are:
1- Ensure thumbnail option is ticked in the system options
2- Ensure Windows Folder and search options isn't set to only show icons
3- Try different size of thumbnails
4- Open files and rebuild and resave
If the above are not the cause then it is likely dll that is not correctly registered or corrupt. To fix this:
1. Run command prompt as ADMINISTRATOR Start > type CMD and right click > run as administrator
2. Change directory using the command (no space before text): cd C:\Program Files\Common Files\SOLIDWORKS Shared
3. Run the following command: regsvr32 /u sldwinshellextu.dll
(to unregister the dll)
4.Run the command: regsvr32 sldwinshellextu.dll
(to register the dll)
5.This should say it is successfully registered.
click "ok" at the prompt.
