I have attached the DxDiag file as requested and also taken a few screenshots to show what I am experiencing.
The resource browser image shows when Vectorworks opens it has the render textures in the favourites file as normal however this is a default template opening in Vectorworks so when I have tried to use my template file (this is a copy of one I use on my PC) the render textures do not show up in the resource browser. I then shut Vectorworks down and reopened it to draw a shape to extrude and as you can see although I have the render textures available this time in my resource browser I still can't add a texture through the object info.
I'm not sure whether it is anything to do with the laptop as the specs are miles ahead of what I currently use on my PC and I was wondering whether it is something I may have done wrong on the install, however, I did use the install wizard.
Just as an add-on to this I have realised whilst doing these screenshots renderworks did not show up in the licensed products, however, I've reopened Vectorworks and the renderworks license is shown but I still have the same problem.
Any help would be appreciated thanks
