Vision doesn't load on Windows 8.1

Recommended Posts



I am having trouble with Vision 2019 on Windows 8.1 64 bit. When I open the software I get the splash screen and then the program closes. I have tried running in administrator mode, my graphics drivers are up to date and am running SP1. I had the same issue on SP0 but Vision 2018 worked fine.


Is there any known issues with Vision 2019 on Windows 8.1?

What are the specification of your graphics card?

Vision has some very specific video card requirements especially for Vision 2019.

@Robert Janiak I think the issue with the laptop I am trying to use is the lack of a proper graphics card. Version 2018 worked on it but I guess the graphics requirements are higher with the new version. I will have to stick to my desktop computer for now.
