second, click on "display" at the top of the screen, then click on "display settings". you should see a dialog box asking you to pick a display mode (uncheck "auto-detect" and set it to "auto" if you're unsure). make sure you pick a display mode that has realview graphics and is not edge. if you are using a nvidia card, set it to "progressive" or "custom" and pick a lower number. for example, if your monitor has a native resolution of 1920x1080, set the custom mode to 1920x1080, 32-bit (since all of solidworks' display options are limited to a maximum of 32-bits). if you are not using a nvidia card, set it to "progressive" or "custom" and pick a higher number. for example, if your monitor has a native resolution of 2560x1600, set the custom mode to 2560x1600, 64-bit. if your display does not have realview graphics, you will not be able to use realview in solidworks with it. if your display is not using a nvidia card, you may not see any change when you set the graphics mode to realview. make sure you click "ok" and close the window.
if you go back to the display settings, you should see that your graphics mode has changed to "realview". if you want to change back, go back to the display settings window and click on the "normal" button.
if you open solidworks, you should see that the realview graphics icon is now enabled. if you close and open solidworks, you'll see the graphics settings window appear again. if you want to use the realview graphics, click on the "yes" button and close the window. this will take effect the next time you open solidworks. if you are not able to see the realview graphics options, make sure you have the realhack x.13.11.00-v36.exe program in your "programs" folder and that you are running it with "run as administrator". if this still does not work, try the "clean update" option from the realhack x.exe program. you can also follow the on-screen instructions when you run realhack. you can also copy the program into the "programs" folder if you want to run it manually.
