Catia V5 Don't show on Monitor


New member
Hi Everyone,
I run catia V5 on windows 7 sp1 machine with 16 GB RAM. But after installing on two different machine with different media, one from purchase package and one downloaded directly from website.
But when everything done, I double click on Catia Icon and nothing happen but process showing running in Task manager.

Please help.

I will really appreciate it.

you have different methods to start CATIA, may be it will be the issue with the shortcut so u can follow any one of the below methods to launch CATIA and try.
1. Go to START (WINDOWS)-->all programs-->CATIA

2. Go to the installed directory and click on CNEXT.exe (C:\Program Files\Dassault systemes\B25\win_b64\code\bin\CNEXT.exe)

3. open command prompt and type the above installation path and type CNEXT and press enter key
