Re: Simp Rep Not Working!

Alan,

PROE_FoundationAdv license contains ASSY_PERFORMANCE module. This license enables you to create SimpRep in ASSY.

PROE_Foundation license does not contain ASSY_PERFORMANCE module. This license does not enable you to create SimpRep in ASSY.

Test:

Launch Creo and click File > Help > System information.

In License Information section check License Name line.

If it contains PROE_FoundationAdv, then you can create SimpRep in ASSY.

Your parametric.psf contains the following line:

ENV=CREOPMA_FEATURE_NAME=PROE_FoundationAdv PROE_Foundation ()

This means that Creo tries to get PROE_FoundationAdv license during startup. If PROE_FoundationAdv license is in use, then Creo automatically tries to get PROE_Foundation license during startup. If PROE_Foundation license is also in use, then Creo informs you that there is no free license.

Try to change the above mentioned line to the following one:

ENV=CREOPMA_FEATURE_NAME=PROE_FoundationAdv ()

After this change you will always launch Creo with the proper license.

Re: Simp Rep Not Working!

This looks like a graphics card issue. You might want to try to upgrade your graphics card driver.

You can test the graphics by adding the config.pro option:

graphics WIN32_GDI

The option will dregrade your graphics performance but if it works after setting this, then you know it's a graphics issue. If it works, after setting it, upgrade your graphics card drivers and remove the config.pro option and re-test.

Thanks Stephen.

Tried that. It made no difference.

Re: Simp Rep Not Working!

Alan,

I guess that you can create simplified representation in a part and you cannot create simplified representation in an assembly. Is it true ?

It looks like your startup command is not configured properly, it does not contain license code, which enables you to work with assembly simplified representations.

Hi Martin.

Yes. That's right. Can I get round this?

Re: Simp Rep Not Working!

Alan,

if you want to check your license, you can click File > Help > System information and see the list of modules in Configured Option Modules section.

If you open CREO2\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin\parametric.psf in Notepad, you will see the same information in the line beginning with ENV=CREOPMA_FEATURE_NAME=

I cannot give you detailed information how to solve your problem, because I do not know your licenses.

Maybe you can compare proe1.psf (ProE Wildfire 5.0) with parametric.psf (Creo 2.0).

Re: Simp Rep Not Working!

Martin.

proe1.psf says "PROE_FoundationAdv ()"

parametric.psf says "PROE_FoundationAdv PROE_Foundation ()"

I guess I never realised SimpRep in ASSY was an option!

Thanks anyway

Re: Simp Rep Not Working!

Many thanks Martin.

I don't have that that module for Creo2. I tried your change but to no avail.

I did not realise SimpRep was an extra. It is something I use only rarely (hence why I have only just noticed!), mainly from a drawing perspective.

You would of thought this would be a standard function - but this is PTC I guess.

Thanks for your help anyway

Re: Simp Rep Not Working!

Alan,

if I understand you well, then you do not need to continue this discussion.

BTW ... it looks like only part of Creo licenses has active maintenance.
