Possible Grahics issue

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

Regards,
Brian Hoerner

RE: Possible Grahics issue

Hey Brian,

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 “Define Pro/E Commands” 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 “ -gSmiley Surprisedpengl” (no quotes… space is important)
to the end of your startup command in the “Define Pro/E Commands” window.

Thanks again Bill… that one was a lifesaver.
