Bingo... right on the spot.. Many people will be delighted with the information but still is it legal or good enough to do this???
No idea Deepak, but I know a lot of people ask, and I like to share what I learn
Of course, if it's against the EULA, I'd expect this post to be deleted, and have the Copyright Police smashing down my do
Noooooooo, come baaaaaaakkkkkkk!!!! Hide, quickly!
I think the greatest risk is trashing your file. It's like fire, electricity, or making registry changes - powerful, yet dangerous if you don't know what to touch and what not to touch. However, having been zapped more than once because I wasn't paying enough attention, I have also experienced the blue screen of death after treading in the registry none too carefully. So venture with caution. But if you have never looked at what's in a compound file, your are missing an experience - it's cool! :-)
I love the thought of this, but my analogy is if you are going to eat chicken wings, might as well go
for the super hots!!!
Ok, can you post snap shots of the backgrounds you have updated or changed?
I remember when I first started SW 2010 prior to that one was able to change the wallpaper
persay in the property manager. I found out from my VAR that was no longer
an option to change. Are you telling me this is the avenue to do something like that?
I so miss that personal tough in our screen settings.
Oh, and Wayne, you are too funny!!! Love your personality coming out in your postings!!!
That's great to be able to change the Splash Screen ... but what would be even better is for the boot up to be so quick as to not need the Splash Screen to 'entertain' (read distract) the user in the first place.
When I fire up SW, it's because I want to do some work ... not look at pretty pictures.
Don't worry Wayne, I beat them back with my laptop full of open-source programs...
Scott - nothing particularly noteworthy yet
Changed the background to a 3D rendering of the company logo but that's it so far. Got a lot of projects I'd like to complete/re-render with PV360.
Kelvin - most heavyweight programs have a splashscreen - I remember that WinXP aimed to reduce the "Windows Loading" page by loading your desktop faster... problem was that everything was still unresponsive for the next 5 mins loading everything in the background anyway.
There is one way to avoid the splash screen - open your web browser and log on to the cloud (of course, that's only if you have a fast connection)
Great! But can you show me how do you know these files are used when Solidwoks run (swstyleblueu.dll, sldresu.dll).
Any idea what you need to change now in SolidWorks 2017? The PNGs to change the background when you have SolidWorks open have changed and im struggling to work out which ones now need to be changed.
I know it breaks warranty etc but we have a large TV on the wall with SolidWorks open that DriveWorks autopilot uses to make models. When its not running we like to show company images, birthday greetings, the boss photoshopped as an elf at Christmas, instead of the bog standard solidworks logo.
