Hello,

 

I recently used the "View File" in the context menu.for a .PDF on the desktop and other file types as well. When I do so, I see a popup window stating

 

SOLIDWORKS PDM 

The viewer 'C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS PDM\FileViewer.exe' is missing.

I searched for FileViewer.exe in the registry and the path is correct. I also navigated with Windows explorer, and FileViewer.exe resides in the path C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS PDM. I decided to proceed with the 2019 SP 4 update from the 2019 SP3 thinking that perhaps that may solve the issue, but it did not.

 

What is the correct default path and how do I go about fixing this? I currently have Solidworks 2019 SP 4 with PDM Standard.

Regards,

Tom
