Can you upload a sample document here to test the file?
This will prove the document or your installation is at fault.
Use advanced editor (top right hand side of the post window)
If you are unable to, then try a Solidworks repair
Hello Peter, thanks for a quick response!
I'd loke to avoid uploading the file.
But I tested it on another PC with WinXP (the problematic machine runs Win7 32bit) - it worked fine.
I tried to reinstall and repair the software - didn't help.
This is the Error message from logs:
Faulting application EModelViewer.exe, version 22.214.171.124, faulting module 50a47e9e, version ig4icd32.dll, fault address 0x0.0.0.0.
This could be related to user rights looking at other examples of this sort of crash.
Can you try saving a troublesome document to a folder in the c: drive.
Log on as LOCAL ( PC admin, not domain), administrator and then try opening the document.in Edrawing.
"If" this works, you can then add the user to the LOCAL PC's administrator's group.
tried to open it with my user on his PC (i'm a network admin) - worked fine.
Though, he's a part of local Admins group, I tried to run SolidWorks "as administrator" - same result.
So I'm starting to think that the problem is in his windows profile.
But, maybe there is a way to find which component gives troubles and change its regestry settings? (Something like "always allow to run"...)
It didn't work too
Just going to create new profile, I give up.
ok, Just in case you are not sure,here is the way to correctly remove a user profile in windows 7:-
Login onto the computer as an Administrator
Navigate to the users profile folder
Location would be C:\Users\username.
Delete or rename the users profile folder
Run CMD as an administrator
Press the Windows key and the Rkey at the same time. When the Run window comes up, type CMD and hit enter.
Open the Registry Editor
When the command prompt opens type Regedit and hit enter.
Find the key for the user profile for which you are deleting or renaming
Reboot the computer and have the user login.
Any solution to this ? I am having the same problem installing to PC running windows 7 pro
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM,TOO..
I DONT RESOLVE THIS...
I CHECK THE USER PROFILES..
I TRIED FORMATED MY WORKSTATION,
BUT NOT RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM STILL
This solution is working for me. Right click on the desktop and then click on "Configure Switchable Graphics". If the Emodelviewer is set to High Performance, set it to Power Saving. Don't ask me why but this works. It has something to do with eDrawings asking the video card to do something it doesn't want to do. I'm running Windows 7 Pro.
Thanks, NV. I was having the same problem and this solved it for me, too.
By changing this setting, you are forcing the Windows graphics system to use the Intel GPU built into the CPU as opposed to using the secondary, high-performance GPU, which in my case is an ATI chip on my Dell Latitude E6540.
There must be some sort of driver compatibillity issue with the current version of eDrawings. I hope that they can get it worked out soon as the performance of the ATI GPU is considerably better than the Intel GPU.
