#107 No gui display on Windows 7 and Vista

Have installed 7.22.0 on Windows 7 and Vista. When I run mged, the command window works but I cannot get any objects displayed on the gui window. When I try to activate the grid, all windows hang (not responsive).

Mged commands seem to work properly until attempting to display the grid.

TIA for any help!

    What happens if you try something really simple like "make sph sph" -- does it hang?

    Sean,

    When I try 'make sph sph', the gui screen stays black and the sphere is
    not shown. If I then click Draw Grid and click on the screen, the screen
    turns light gray and hangs. If I then click on the command window, it
    also hangs.

    I should also mention that I don't seem to have a '.mgedrc' file
    anywhere. I don't know if this is related (or if I even need the file on
    Windows).

  • Mged wouldn't open at all on my older Vista laptop (no real graphics card).
    It Installed fine on girlfriend's newer Windows 8 laptop.

    Cheers,

    Hmm. Just retried on Win 7 and it seems to work properly. Vista still
    not working. I'll try updating the video driver.

    Not having a .mgedrc is irrelevant. It sounds like the problem is specific to Vista. It's probably some problem talking to your video card (via OpenGL). Please do report if updating your graphics driver helps.

    Sean,

    I have the latest video driver installed (it's rather old,but it is the
    latest).

    Perhaps of more interest is that the OpenGL version on my desktop
    system(which seems to run mged correctly) is 2.1, but the version on the
    laptop is 1.5. Does mged require something in the 2.1 version of OpenGL
    that isn't present in 1.5? I haven't been ableto find any reference to
    OpenGL version requirements for BRLCAD.

  • The specs are attached of the Vista computer on which Mged would not
    install.
    RtWizard and Archer installed fine.
