    Is anyone successfully running SolidWorks 2018 or 2019 with OpenGL enabled in Parallels 14?

    I just upgraded my Parallels 11 to 14 and also upgraded from Win7 to Windows 10.

    I cannot get my SolidWorks 2018 and SolidWorks 2019 registry hack to work like it did on Parallels 11/Win7. I'm on a MacBook Pro and have a Nvidia GeForce GT 750M. I have tried the Parallels provide registry settings and they do not work either (I've entered the registry settings manually for years.)

    What I did prior to my Parallels 14/Win10 upgrade was to change:
    Create new key under
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SolidWorks 2018\Performance\Graphics\Hardware\G12Shaders\Other\Parallels using NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M OpenGL Engine
    Create a new 32bit worked called "Workarounds"

    assign a value to it of 40000

    go to

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SolidWorks 2018\Performance\Graphics\Hardware\Parallels and NVIDIA Corporation

    and assign the value of 4000480 to Workarounds.

    Above worked for Parallels 11 and Win7 but does not work for Parallels 14 and Win10?

    Any help appreciated

    I solved this problem by reinstalling Parallels Toolbox.
