I have a user that is having a problem with the graphics freezing up at times, even just after he gets a part on the screen and does nothing but start a rotate of the view. This happens whether parts are opened directly from a folder on the OS, or if he opens a part from within Intralink. This is not all of the time, or only specific parts, but happens many time during the day. The machine specifics are below, has anyone else had this issue?
Wildfire m150 Intralink 3.3 Dell with 1gig of ram Nvidia 900xgl graphics card with 128mg ram Windows XP, SP1

This sounds like a problem that Bill Kunz at Alcon helped us with. There is a known bug in Intralink 3.3 that when you start Pro/E with the Ã¢ÂÂDefine Pro/E CommandsÃ¢ÂÂ menu pick, Pro/E starts up defaulting to win32 graphics mode instead of OpenGL. This makes it run very, very, very slow. (enough empasis???) The fix it to add Ã¢ÂÂ -gpenglÃ¢ÂÂ (no quotesÃ¢ÂÂ¦ space is important) to the end of your startup command in the Ã¢ÂÂDefine Pro/E CommandsÃ¢ÂÂ window.
Thanks again BillÃ¢ÂÂ¦ that one was a lifesaver.
