I just installed SP01EV on Windows7 64bit. Everything is working great, but the Heads-Up view toolbar is gone. If I RMB on toolbar to turn off/on toolbars, it says it's on - toggling does nothing.
Yes, it sounds like your registry is not correct. I would suggest exiting SolidWorks, going to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/SolidWorks and rename the "SolidWorks 2010" key to something like "SolidWorks 2010 old" or just deleting it if you don't care to keep it. Then try starting up again and see if everything is OK. This will re-populate the registry using the settings you have from your last previous version (or from the default set of settings if this is the first version you are running on this machine).
I hope this works,
You may have lost your button definitions for that toolbar. Try using Tools-Customize-Commands tab and drag a few buttons to that general area of the screen. It should show a green "+" sign when you drag the button over what would be the heads-up toolbar.
Not sure why you would have lost these button definitions. Do you have SW 2009 installed too? Have you installed and run an earlier version of SW 2010 SP0 or SP0 EV?
Generally, this is not supposed to happen and I am not sure why it would be empty on a new installation. However, it could be that it is simply empty and you can just drag icons from Tools, Customize, Commands into the top, middle of the graphics area and drop them onto the place the toolbar should be. Once you get the first one there, it should be easy to add the rest.
Again, I don't know why it would come up empty by default unless something went wrong during startup (when it is loading the settings into the registry). Is there anything else wrong with your user interface (like flyouts missing from toolbars or anything like that)? If so, this would also pointing to something going wrong when the registry was being populated.
Hah! I can clearly type faster than Jim :-) I should have heard him franticly clicking away on his keyboard and known he was replying to the same topic...
Now that you mention it, yeah - there was a lot of stuff missing from the flyouts; I just added them back manually... din't think to attempt this with the heads-up.
Is this something that can be fixed by deleting the registry key in HKEY_CURRENT USER (assuming Windows 7 still allows that)?
PS - speaking of flyouts, it seems like there's a great deal of them missing from the set of avaialbel icons - did you guys eliminate some?
Jim - that did it.
---- Just kidding... I copied Jim's text...
Geez...not only am I going to have to yell across the hall to make sure he isn't replying to a message at the same time I am, now I am going to have to watch out he doesn't steal my work!
I have fixed it by going to Windows Task Manager and closing all Solidworks related processes, after that I just restarted my Solidworks and the issue was gone. Hope this helps.
