Rhino 6 doesn't fully start and crashes


After installing the new NVIDIA drivers and the last update of Rhino 6, rhino doesn’t fully start.
Only when I set the 3d settings to Advance Streaming & prefer maximal performance.

With the default settings 3d settings, Rhino works fine.

I always use the advance 3d setting to get more performance, but is it still necessary?

Hi Thomas,
I’d say that it’s worth a try to also update the Intel drivers.
You say that Rhino doesn’t fully start and then crashes. How far does it get? Do you get the crash reporting dialog and, if so, are you sending in the report?
