DesignReview crashes on startup with DirectX

On opening a large dwf Design Review 2012/2013 crashes on startup (ends immediately before model is shown). The acceleration-mode is by default on Direct3D. We've found that if we switch this mode to OpenGL the application does not crash at startup. However it doesn't run stable in this mode either (user are reporting about 2 crashes in 10 minutes).


The readme for ADR2013 recommends for some known issues to switch the hardware acceleration mode to OpenGL. However this mode is also not running stable for large models and our users state that as not usable.



- Windows 7 64bit

- ThinkStation E31

- Quadro 600


Does anyone have an idea how to fix the problem with DirectX or the unstable OpenGL-mode? We've updated already the graphics card drivers but this did not help.
