Recreating Default SolidWorks Templates

To have SolidWorks regenerate the default templates:

  1. Browse to "Tools->Options->File Locations" and make sure the drop down bar says "Document Templates"File_Location.png
  2. Navigate to these locations within Windows Explorer and make sure they don't have any template files (.prtdot, .asmdot, .drwdot)
  3. Reopen SolidWorks
