Picture command crashing Rhino 7.0

The Picture Command regularly crashes Rhino 7.0. I had to use the Task Manager to close down Rhino. I even tried restarting the computer but the problem persisted. I had to save the file to Rhino 6.0 to get the Picture command to work without crashing the Rhino file.
This happens from time to time. I make sure to save my work before using the command if I am in Rhino 7.0

Hi Dana -

Please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and copy/paste the results here.

Hi Dana - the first thing to do is get the latest driver for your GPU from the nVidia website.


Hi Pascal,

Just downloaded the latest nVidia driver.

The picture command worked when I tried it. OK for now.

Thank you for your help!
