    cannot find fileviewer.exe PDMWorks Enterprise 11.04

    Eric Martin

      When viewing the history of a file I get a error message that it cannot find c:\program files\PDMWorks Enterprise\fileviewer.exe.. 

      I find that the file actually resides at c:\program files\Solidworks Enterprise PDM\fileviewer.exe


      We are using PDM Enterprise 11.04


      When I created the directory and moved the file everything worked fine.  Where do I find the reference to the file in PDM so that I do not have to create and move the file on all the PC's that use PDM?

          Hello.  This location is in the registry and it is set during installation and isn't the same on every machine.  You could try searching the registry for "fileviewer.exe" and replace all the references.  However, this problem is likely the result of something preventing the appropriate update of the registry during upgrade/installation - the registry key is in an area with Windows settings, not SW reg keys.
