"HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWARE>Solidworks>SOLIDWORKS 2017>Performance>Graphics>Gl2Shaders>NV40"
5.Right-click on the NV40 folder on the left pane and select "New -> Key"
6.Rename the new key with what was copied in step #3
7.The only key in this folder should be a "(Default)" key

9.Name this new key "Workarounds"
10.Double-click on the "Workarounds" key and enter the value "30408". You should be in Hexadecimal mode.
11.RealView should now be available. If it is not, try setting the value in step #10 to "31408" or "30008".
