I have just installed ProEngineer Wildfire 4.0 on a Dual Xeon Quad Core machine similar to a Proliant 300 series or HP xw8600. It appeared to license properly, but won't start up. Installation was on C:, all default options; no errors reported. Academic software version. ProEngineer starts up once, flashes a small splash screen briefly and then shuts down without further comment. I have tried all of the solutions in the FAQ.

The biggest thing that crashes Pro-E is graphic driver and/or graphic card. Try this go to your config.pro file, since I don't know if you used the standard directory installation I would use the windows search. Open the config.pro file in wordpad or a text editor. Now add a line: graphics wind32_gdi Save file and try Pro-E again. If it works then upgrade video driver or card. The best performance for Pro-E will be to set that line back to: graphics opengl Make sure that you type the line as I have written here. There must be a space between graphis and option. Eric
