Hi, I am running SW Student Edition 2018-19 on a laptop with Nvidia RTX4000. Why RealView is dimmed when I try to use it?
Does your system recognize SolidWorks is running and switch to the RTX card for video output?
In other words, I always turn off hybrid graphics in the BIOS.
Is that an OpenGL card or is it a DirectX card?
As far as I know, it is a Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000 Max-Q GPU for laptop. It is certified to work with SolidWorks.

Don't know if it is OpenGL card or DirectX card but the specs states DirectX 12_1 so perhaps it is the latter?
Could it be that I need to upgrade to the latest SW version as the laptop is new.
Can you post screen capture image of your screen?
(Do you have a solid body?)
Thanks Richard. I forgot that I turned off the RTX card in general to safe battery. After I turned the GPU selection to Auto via the Nvidia control panel under Windows and relaunched SW again, RealView became available. I quitted the program, turned it back to Integrated Graphics, RealView option disappeared.
Is this checked, or not checked?
If it is checked, then close all documents (but have Solidworks open) and uncheck it. Then try again.
If it is not checked......then I have no idea....
Thanks. The problem is solved but just curious, how come I only have: General, Default Library, Message/Error/Warnings and Email Notification Settings under System Options? I only have "System Options" and "Default Options" tabs.
Can you share a screen shot of what you are talking about?
