I'm using PTC Creo Parametric 3.0 M010 (The trial verision) and I've been going through the tutorials, but everytime I try to add a part to an assembly the program does a full crash with no explanation.
I've found a partial way around it by using the Assemble->Include rather than straight Assemble, but then I can't actually constrain it.
My video card is fully updated and I can't continue with the tutorials without this being fixed, so I'm hoping someone has the answer. The only other clue I have was I was also crashing whenever I tried to place a hole, which I solved by turning off preview, that's about all I've got clue-wise though.
Also, not sure if this is the right place to ask this question (New to Creo), but after holding for an hour and not getting to the first stage of tech support, I'm not sure if I can handle doing that again.
Try setting the graphics config option to win32_gdi. It's can be in a file called config.pro. If it isn't there it can be added.
Okay I think I found the correct file: C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 3.0\M010\Common Files\text\config.pro
There were 4 with that name, but this one made the most sense.
It didn't have a set application to open it with so I went with Word. It gives this text:
I don't see anything about the graphic config option? If I have to add it to the file, what precisely am I adding?
Also, I tried opening it in Creo Parametric just to check, and it wouldn't do it.
It's a macbook pro running windows 7, AMD Radeon.
Look under Tools/Options

Your best bet for editting is Notepad. The line to add is:
with a space character between "graphics" and "win32gdi"
