Graphics Device Interface Enhancements

SOLIDWORKS PDM works with increased stability.

The Graphics Device Interface (GDI) resource monitor monitors the performance of File Explorer, File Viewer, Search processes, Item Explorer, and Card Editor. A warning message appears when the available GDI resources are low or very low for any of the above-mentioned processes.

To modify the predefined threshold values, in the registry setting, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Solidworks\Applications\PDMWorks Enterprise\Vaults\_-Global\Settings, change the values of the following variables:
  • GDI_Warning_Threshold
  • GDI_Danger_Threshold
  • MonitorGDIFrequency(sec)
