When selecting material no preview to see what the material looks like

I am on Windows 7 service pack 1 (64 bit).

Solidworks 2011 service pack 5 (I do not use 2012 until next year when all my customers may have updated by then)


When using the add on photoview, I go to select a material and during the process the dialog box will not show what the material is until it is applied and previewed on a part.


When I was on SW 2010 and Photoview was standalone the preview of materials worked then after about 6 months the preview pane was empty of previews.

The only changes this computer has ever seen is updates to SW and the standard window updates.

I have already contacted my Solidworks reseller for support and they do not see this as a problem.


Thanks Ray
