Try updating your video card driver.

Hey david,

 

On this pc I had run the trail version for 30 days without problems.

After the trail period I delted the program and got a study licence version, this one I have downloaded from the side and istall this I also had to fill in the product key and password with I got from the study licences.

But when I start the program is start up and stops when it's checking the licences. and I can not stop the program normally but only with restart the computer.

 

Best regards,

Lia

If you symtom is below, can you try to create a new account to launch the product?

The only other solution that I have done to make it work is to update the video driver.  It is odd but for some reason it worked.
