Graphics messed up

i have 2 laptops that Student edition Creo 2.0 are installed on.

then i have a very nice powerfull desktop

the two laptops have trouble rendering and thats it.

the desktop renders like a chance, but instead of the part starting out in sketch as orange then when you give it depth it goes grey.

i get a black part right away.

what do i need to do to change or resolve this graphics issue? if that is wha it is.

any and all questions shoot em up.

desktop part:

Re: Graphics messed up

The information outlined by Laurentiu may work but we have new information from development that makes the instructions outlined in the comment to this post a better procedure to follow. Please give these options a try.

Note that I think updating the graphics driver on your computer should fix the issue, without even changing the config.pro.

Re: Graphics messed up

Hello,

Please update your graphic card driver.

Also you wiill need to edit the config.pro file manually:

  • Look in the folder C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 2.0\Common Files\Mxxx\text\ for the file config.pro
    • The Mxxx may vary depending when you installed.
  • If this file exists open it in wordpad
    • If you are on Windows 7 you may need to open Wordpad first with admin privileges by going to Start > Programs > Accessories then right-clicking wordpad and choosing “Run as Administrator”. Then open the file
  • add the following line

graphics win32_gdi

  • Save the file and run Creo.
