ANSYS Aim 18.0 fails to visualize after import of geometry

ANSYS Aim 18.0 fails to visualize after import of geometry

Dear Eng-Tips community,

Yesterday I installed the ANSYS Aim 18.0 student edition.
Since it use is rather straightforward I started with a structural analysis for which I needed to upload a geometry.
After uploading I get the geometry in view in the study tab.
Though after 3 seconds or so the tab hangs and does not show any action whenever I click or try to move the geometry.
When changing tabs it takes over the visuals of the projects tab or shows only a blank white screen as can be seen in the png attached to this post.
Interestingly, I can hover over the options present in the study tab as if it was still functioning, only the visuals are gone.
Does anyone experienced this before, or even better know a solution?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
