CheckPoint SmartDashboard – Missing Menu

Was just bouncing around updating rules in some firewalls, and noticed that the menu bar at the top of the window was missing… After some searching, I found that a registry setting needed to be modified, to restore the menu bar. Here is the registry path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CheckPoint\Management Clients\6.2.01\R75.10\Check Point SmartDashboard\Check Point SmartDashboard\Toolbar States\ToolBar-Bar0

You will need to change:

Visible = 0
Visible = 1

I am not sure why the SmartDashboard application decided to not display the menu bar, but at least it is fixable, albeit very very annoying…
