After starting my SW today i can use the measure tool but the box doesn't pop-up.
How can i bring my dialog box back?
Try to toggle the Workspace to default and check to see if it shows up.
You must have accidentally moved the dialog box outside the screen. Check this post on setting it back via registry setting Lost measurement box
Checked the registry settings changed the value but still the same...
Are you seeing the measure window like this? If yes then click on the little drop down on the right.
If not then press Alt + Tab key to see if it is hiding behind the SW screen.
That's the dialog box i'm missing.
alt + Tab didn't worked
What is your SW version? Also are you using dial monitor? If yes then check on other monitor.
For single monitor, drag and reduce the size of SW window and then run the measure command to see if you can see the window.
Dual monitor --> other monitor still the same.

You may want to reset the registry for SOLIDWORKS to see if that helps.

Have you verified your graphics drivers? I've recently had problems w/ Windows automagically 'updating' the drivers to a non-certified version. Caused all sorts of headaches.
Checked the driver and the certified driver is installed
Check out this thread, maybe it will help.
