Apparently when you unistall eDrawings off your computer it forgets to change the Pro/Engineer startup extension file. See if this helps.

1) Goto \text

For example, mine is C:\ptc\proeWildfire2.0\text

2) Open protk.dat with either Notepad or Wordpad. 3) Delete the lines from this file as follows (these lines were found in my protk.dat file, although yours should not be much different, ALSO MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE JUST IN CASE):

name eDrawings startup DLL delay_start FALSE exec_file $PRO_DIRECTORY\$PRO_MACHINE_TYPE\obj\proeconnector.dll text_dir $PRO_DIRECTORY end

5) Save the file. 6) Startup Pro/Engineer and it should work!

Hope this helps.
