Just upgraded t 2020 and see that Software Open Gl is active but greyed out so I can not turn it off.
I run an Nvidia P2000 which is fully supported and have the recommended driver set.
Any clue how to correct this?
Sorry I didn't see this question sooner, but I believe you have to go to SOLIDWORKS Tools 2020, then click on SOLIDWORKS Rx 2020. In the bottom of that pane, you will see SOLIDWORKS Safe Modes. Click on the "launch SOLIDWORKS in Software OpenGL Mode." I think I used to do this a different way but it either doesn't work anymore or I simply don't recall how I did it.
Just to eliminate the obvious, did you close all SOLIDWORKS documents before trying to uncheck the option? It can't be toggled if documents are open.
When I was replying to John, that's how I thought I used to toggle it on/off as well - closing all documents. However,
here's a screen snip of my SW with no open documents and the option is still greyed out:
This doesn't really matter to me...(at least not yet haha) but if this is happening to others also, just figured I'd say something.
You would need to disable the bottom option on the Performance tab:
"Enhanced graphics performance (requires SOLIDWORKS restart)"
Then restart SOLIDWORKS. Then, with no documents open, you'd be able to enable software OpenGL if you wanted to.
Essentially there are 3 options now:
1) New/enhanced hardware OpenGL (this is the default for 2020 - when "Enhanced Graphics Performance" is checked)2) Legacy hardware OpenGL (when "Enhanced Graphics Performance" is cleared, and software OpenGL is cleared)3) Software OpenGL (when "Enhanced Graphics Performance" is cleared, and software OpenGL is checked)
Thanks, guys. I got it working by selecting reset on the Performance options page.
Just stuck on until I did that.
