Photoview 360 disappeared?

Question asked by Will Quinn on Aug 28, 2014

Hi guys,


Im running Solidworks 2014 Premium Edition and have been having issues with photoview 360. I ran a preview render once to check how my assembly would look, and it ran fine. However, I had to make some changes to my assembly and upon trying to re render, nothing happened. I went to to tools > add-ins and Photoview 360 was'nt there but render tools was still showing on the Features, sketch etc bar. I went to the render tools part and clicked preview render and the Windows 8/7 loading circle was displayed for a second, nothing happened and nothing appeared in task manager. I restarted with the same results. This is issue was only fixed by reinstalling, but only allowed me to do one render before it deleted itself again.


Solidworks 2014 Premium Edition SP4.


Intel Core i7 3930K @ 4.3GHz


GTX 770 OC with 4gb GDDR5

Windows 8.1 (update 1) pro 64 bit


So why is photoview deleting itself after one use when I am, as a premium user, entitled to it?
