If I were you, I’d update the display drivers for both Intel and Nvidia cards to drivers issued this month.


If that doesn’t get your V6 running, start it in Safemode and disable the Plug-ins that do not ship with Rhino.

Updating drivers did not change anything. Safemode won’t start also.
The WIP7 works well

Another couple things to try:

  1. Ensure that you have the latest build of Rhino from https://www.rhino3d.com/download/

  2. If that doesn’t work, install the latest “vc_redist.x64.exe” from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

  3. If that doesn’t work, please reply here.
