No .slddrw templates

Hi, I suffered a major crash & burn and had to format the HD. Reinstalled SW2003 but I don't have any drawing templates in File / New / Open or in the dialogue box that pops up when SW opens. I turned off all virus protection prior to the installation but no luck that way either.


Thanks, Mark

You are going to have to add them to the path SW has them normally located or specify the path.

To change or specify the path,.. Tools/Options/File Locations/Document Templates/ \data\templates\

This is a bitchy one. I had the same issue installing on WinXP Home and never resolved it. I ended up installing Win2K because I had to get the job done. There is a thread on this and people have been able to work around this one way or the other, but just as many people never resolved it. It seems to have something to do with the registration of components not happening.

See here for related thread - didn't help me however.

Hi all, Thanks for the tips. I ended up cleaning out the registry with the free version of regvac and reinstalling SW2003. My .slddrw templates came back.
