Hello just wondering if anyone using SolidWorks 2007 thru 2009 has had any compatibility issues with other software stopping the display of cad models.

I have been using 2007 premium on my vista x64 bit os for more than a year without any problems, yet as of one month ago suddenly I have been having a problem with the 3D model viewing.

All of the model design tree information is displayed in the feature & document tree manager all the functions within sw07 work.....just the display of the cad model is gone....if I place my cursor over the area where the model should be i see some symbol where the cursor is but that's it?

I have uninstalled ms visual c++2005 redistributable & (x64) redistributable in addition to complete uninstall rebooting and reinstalling...checked the compatibility mode tab for xp....

And yet the cad visual is not there....I have had only a change in my cpu and video cards ....since changing to vga cards solidworks was working quite nicely with 2gb of video memory....have had the new cpu for only two days.

I have a feeling that the issue is being caused by some driver problem with Ati...and some other program that I am using or perhaps microsoft has updated to?

SolidWorks seems to work fine if it's the only program installed on my computer...thus.........Aside from notifying Ati....

I am going to try a fresh os install then put chipset drivers & video drivers...then solidworks and after every other software install check to see if sw is still working until I find what the conflict happens to be...

What else can I do......???
