Since converting to SW 2015, the open, save as dialog box is missing the Description field. I'm running Windows 8.1
Any thoughts? Suggestions?
Check the reply here: Re: Windows 8.1, Solidworks 2015 SP1, Description box missing from "Save as dialog box"
Also SW2015 SP 3.0 is available to download and upgrade. So if you've not I would strongly advise to upgrade to SP 3.0
Did the upgrade to SP 3.0 and this did not fix the problem. Still no "Description" file in dialog box.
Steve, I've Win 7 and description box works OK for me. Can you please check on a different machine or report to your VAR.
This doesn't work for 64 bit systems.
The VAR got back to me and confirmed what I feared to be true. Microsoft has removed the ability to see and edit the "description" field through the Open/Save As dialog box. Hopefully, SW can find a work around.
I am running SW 2015 SP4 on windows 8.1 Professional 64 bit. I was able to get my description box back during the save process by doing this. Make sure you run the command prompt as administrator.
regsvr32 "c:\program files\SolidWorks\SolidWorks\sldpropertyhandler.dll
This issue has raised it's ugly head again.....
I've written a Bat file to make this process easier:
start cmd.exe /c regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\sldpropertyhandler.dll"
Check out the post from Rodrigo at the bottom here for a batch file. Also, there is a SPR update for this issue in the KB.
