Hopefully this is the right forum, this is my first time posting. Anyways, I just upgraded to 2010 from 2008 where I work. Once I opened 2010 with a part I had, there was a prompt asking me how to display the part, I should've paid more attention, I think there was something about Realview, along with 3 choices. Anyways, I think I left it at the first choice. This was a large assembly so it asked me a few times. I mistakenly hit "don't ask again". The assembly opened up with all the colors gone! All the settings I had as far as the paint colors are gone, so now my parts are only displayed in nice shades of gray. I should've paid more attention. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Where might I find the setting to go back and change it to where it should be? Thanks, Josh.
This could be because the converted data had additional display states automatically created to handle both legacy colors/textures and PhotoWorks or RealView appearances. Check in the ConfigurationManager to see if changing to the alternative display state gives the expected results.
I had the same problem and I solved it by opening all the subassemblies and manually deleting the PhotoWorks Display States in each and everyone of them.
