I suspect your computer may not meet Rhino’s System Requirements.

It might also be something easily corrected by replacing an old buggy GPU driver.

Please run the Rhino “SystemInfo” command and return the results in a reply.
This will give us a good overview of the resources Rhino sees on your computer.

Hopefully something obvious will stick out and suggest a change.

It looks like your evaluation will expire tomorrow so unless you’re planning on purchasing a permanent Rhino license, this might all be for naught.

If it were me I would do the following:

  1. Run the combined 2015, 2017, and 2019 installer using this link from Microsoft:
    Latest supported Visual C++ Redistributable downloads | Microsoft Learn
    Use the 64-bit tool since Rhino is a 64-bit application.
  2. Run the .NET repair tool from Microsoft:
  3. Repair Rhino 7:
    a. Windows Control Panel
    b. Add/Remove programs
    c. Select Rhino
    d. Click Change
    e. Click Repair

Don’t be surprised if you need to restart Windows.

Any luck?

i have tried to repair but its doesnt happened anything also i just bought this laptop ! pls help what should i need to do

New laptop?
My guess is you haven’t run Windows’ Check for Updates yet.

Please run CFU, install, reboot, and run again.
Repeat until Windows 11 is up to date.

“New” computers are never delivered fully up to date.
They are not ready for Software until they are fully updated.


now i m updating my windows to 11 lets see what happen will revert it then

i have installed the update but not happen anything

???help please

Also be sure to grab updated drivers for both your Intel and Nvidia graphics cards :slight_smile:
