Someone in our group had this issue as well. After must frustration, we resolved the problem. Windows installed a .NET update on the day the diagrams stopped working. This update appears to have broken the diagram functionality in PSSE. The solution was to force Windows to check for updates again (Settings > Updates & Security, or search for "WIndows Update" in the start menu). Another .NET update was applied and all PSSE diagrams resumed working.

If your IT group manages your Windows update, you may need to have them force updates to your machines. Hope this helps!

Hi. I have not found a solution. Message from siemens PTI:


We have made a lot of Graphics and performance improvements to PSS®E in the latest release of PSS®E 34.6.1.


I have reverted to an older windows laptop until my maintenance fee is paid up.

Quite disappointing they would release a version with that serious of a glitch. they did give me 34.5.1 but the problem persists in that version too. And I am not the only one in my office with the problem now. some cant even use Gout.

Did you solve the problem? I have the same problem, maybe you could help me with that.

Unfortunately it's quite easy to crash PSS/E by making some adjustments to the SLD; in that sense, the PSS/E GUI certainly has room for improvement. Meanwhile one must struggle on.
