Solid Edge Opening from Windows Explorer starts a new instance of Solid Edge




Opening Solid Edge files from Windows Explorer starts a new process of Edge.exe instead of opening in the current instance.


In this case the solution was a two-step procedure: 

1) Changes to the Local Security Policy 
- Run secpol.msc to activate the Local Security Policy form- Expand Local Policies --> Security Options- Scroll down to where the User Account Control settings are listed: 
Verify or Modify the following: 
- Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode:  Elevate without prompting 
- Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode:  Disabled 
- Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation:  Disabled 

2) Changes to the Application Executable Files 
- browse to Solid Edge program folder- right-click on Edge.exe and select Properties- select the Compatibility tab- click the [Change settings for all users] button- enable "Run this program as an administrator"- OK to dismiss 
REBOOT for the changes to take effect.
