I just upgraded from 2014 to 2015, and RealView used to work. I changed nothing on my computer and I do not have the option for RealView on the 2015 version. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or is there a way to force RealView to turn on?
Run SolidWorks Rx, you probably need to update your graphics driver.
I ran it and everything came back fine. I tried to update my driver through Intel, but since my laptop is a factory system it wouldn't let me. I have the latest HP driver.
The latest HP driver isn't necessarily the best option.
Go to Graphics Card Drivers | SOLIDWORKS and install the driver specified for your HP system.
My graphics card does not show up in that tool. While I know this means it is not supported, it worked in the last version and I'm not sure what would have changed. I would go back but was forced to upgrade.
... I'm not sure what would have changed.
You upgraded to a new version of SW and each new version appears to be more demanding on graphics requirements.
Search for a utility called RealHack and it may allow your GC to run RealView if you are lucky.
