When I try to run my Creo Parmetric 3.0 M010 it doesn't start. I went into the task manager and saw the process start and fade after a few seconds. I tried to run it in as admin, to uninstall and reinstall, I'm completely lost.
I'm running on a lenovo G510 with windows 8.1
Thank you anyone that can help!
What kind of files?
I mean there are files there (it's the c:\users\public\documents folder), but I'm not sure it's the files your'e talking about
There is like a thousend trail.txt files, and there is also a std.out file.
The std.out file contains the following line:
Old Intel Graphics driver found; Disabling FBO. Please update your driver
thos this help us in any way? What is FBO? how can I update my driver?
Take a look at this knowledge base article: CS156839 (assuming you have support). This was written for Creo 2, but it sounds like it may apply.
In case you can't read it, try setting enable_opengl_fbo to no in your config.pro file (either in the loadpoint or in the start-in directory).
Thank you for all the help!
Unfortunatly, I can't read the article,
I did find the config.pro file, but the problem is I found about 3 of those, and non of them have the enable_opengl_fbob setting. They we're all in the creo's Common Files folder
Thank you again!
Attached is a simple config file with only this one command. Rename it from config.txt to config.pro and then drop it into your start-in directory (again, look at the shortcut for this location). Re-launch Creo and let me know if it makes any difference.
I tried what you said, but it seemed to be no different. Is there anything else that can do the trick?
Thank you again for everything
Maybe this will help
Here's what the lastest trail.txt file in the start-in directory says:

This is from 2015/02/04, a few days ago unless your computer clock is way off.
It would be funny if someone built a macro that closes Creo as soon as it opens. Or maybe not so funny if you are trying to get work done.
Your trail file showed that a dialog box warned that Creo would exit and someone selected "yes"
Try running Creo again and see if there is a new trail file that is created and post the contents. Check to see that the date is correct.
So far there isn't enough information to be sure what's wrong, but I'd start by adding "graphics win32_gdi" to the config.pro file and searching here for more info on Intel HD Graphics 4600, such as Creo 2.0 and Intel HD 4600 graphics
A new trail.txt file is not created, so that those trail.txt files are probably a left over from when the program was working
trail file is not created if Creo crashes too early. Try to think whether your computer current "condition" is the same as the previous one (in times when Creo was working correctly). May you disabled network card, updated some drivers, ...
The computer was running some updates like always, it may have caused the change. But it ran so many of them that I can't know which one caused it
it is difficult to help you, because "I am not sitting at your computer". Maybe you can try to install Creo on different computer.
It would be nice if PTC included a startup-logging mode so that each step was recorded for start/execution/completion; preferably with full path names to components and services that it apparently assumes are in place. It's possible to do some of this with the Sysinternals, but I've never used them enough to be all that good at diagnosis Windows Sysinternals: Documentation, downloads and additional resources
This is a link to Mark Russinovich's blog (the guy who developed the Sysinternals to begin with) about detecting and fixing software execution problems. It's a good read no matter what. Mark's Blog Index
I was also struggling with the same issue, Creo 3.0 M060. Tried everything, reinstalled thrice and cleared all registry entries related to PTC. No luck.
But, at last I found a work around. I got so frustrated and kept on double clicking on the program shortcut on the desktop. To my surprise, Creo started up and everything was running fine. But, now everytime I want to startup the software, I keep on double clicking until I see the application opening up.
Hope that helps someone struggling with the issue.
