Part description missing from "Save as" menu in SolidWorks

Some may have encountered a problem in SolidWorks where in the “Save as” menu, the description for the part is missing.  To fix this you must have administrator privileges on the computer.
Search for the file “sldpropertyhandler.dll”.  This file is typically located under Program Files, SolidWorks Corp, SolidWorks.  Once found, note the location


Open the command prompt.  For Windows 8 users, press the window key and type “command” and it should appear on the right hand side. 
Once the command prompt is open, type the following:
 regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\sldpropertyhandler.dll"

Press Enter.

A pop-up window will appear stating the action has succeeded.  That command ensures that the target file is registered in the Windows Registry.
Now when you try to save a file in SolidWorks, the description box should appear.
