I just installed SW2020 and stated playing with it
"Use Software OpenGL" options is grayed out while it's available in older releases
Am I missing something here or any change I'm not aware of?
..as you know, most systems nowadays have two graphics options, the integrated cpu/gpu from intel and a independent nvidia gpu and the SW install somehow grabs the intel gpu?
It could be your system was idle (low power) and using only the intel gpu (the nvidia was dormant, secondary?) while installing?
If it's not already set in the nvidia control panel for Solidworks.. suggest setting the nvidia default at High-Performance (primary) so, the intel gpu is secondary.
at first you have to make sure, that no file is opened (otherwise this setting will be greyed out always).
2nd please install the most recent graphics driver from the vendors homepage.
Thank you, Paul. You just saved my day
I've been using Intel card (from motherboard) while waiting new order of NVIDIA card (K2200) and forgot to set the primary back
It's working now
