CATIA V5 R18 Display Issue


New member
I have installed catia on my windows vista x64bit OS. The installation was successful, however when starting up a new part or opening a file the display remains blank. I can see toolbars and icons but no geometry, workplane, etc.

I am running a windows Vista Ultimate x64bit with a NVidia GeForce GTX 295 processor.

Can anyone please help?

Have recently been told Catia will not work with Vista? just installed V18 using XP w/ no problems. Changed ATI graphics card out to an Invidia Quadra 1700 and it works perfectly!
