Saving Files as Executable Files
You can save files as self-extracting SolidWorks eDrawings executable (*.exe) files that contain the SolidWorks eDrawings Viewer and the SolidWorks eDrawings file. To extract the embedded eDrawings Viewer and open the embedded eDrawings file, run the eDrawings executable file. The eDrawings Viewer can open all supported file types.
This functionality is not available in 64-bit eDrawings.
To save files as eDrawings executable files:
Click File, Save As.
Set Save as type to eDrawings Executable Files (*.exe).
Select from the export options.
Type the File name, then click Save.
To run the eDrawings executable file:
In Windows Explorer, double-click the eDrawings executable file.
The embedded eDrawings Viewer opens and displays the embedded eDrawings file. The eDrawings Viewer used is the same version that was embedded with the executable. You can use this eDrawings Viewer to view other documents.
When you close the eDrawings application launched from an eDrawings executable file, if eDrawings is not installed on that computer, a message prompts you to install eDrawings. The prompt appears every fifth time you exit the eDrawings application launched from the executable file.
