Graphic Screen when I open any file


I am trying to access my free trial of rhino, though any file I open, there are some graphics viewing problems and cannot access any files, attached is an example of graphics screen from Rhino, please help me out in this matter, as depending on how the free version is running, i will be deciding on whether to purchase a license or not.

Thank you

I suspect you are either running an unsupported graphics card, or it could also be very old drivers.

Please run the “SystemInfo” command in Rhino and post the results.
This will tell us about how your Rhino is setup and installed.
It should have a clues we need to suggest a fix.

Hi - the drivers for your GPU are really old:

Primary display and OpenGL: Intel® HD Graphics 530 (Intel) Memory: 1GB, Driver date: 6-29-2015 (M-D-Y). OpenGL Ver: 4.4.0 - Build

There seem to be 2019 drivers available for that card here:

Total Video Memory: 1 GB

Note that the recommended minimum VRAM for running Rhino 6 is 4 GB. Your experience with Rhino 6 on that hardware is likely not to be all that great.
