CATIA will not start

CATIA will not start

CATIA will not start

So I have a fresh install of CATIA. I did not change a thing and CATIA will not start..
When I launch from the icon. It shows up in processes that CNEXT and CATStart are running but CATIA never pops up.

Same with the license manager, Software Management.. I am stumped on this one.

Has anyone experienced this before?

RE: CATIA will not start

Hi Slaen,

Sounds like could be the environment file usually located in C:\ProgramData\DassaultSystemes\CATEnv by default. Perhaps its not referenced in the shortcut target or you have installed CATIA in a different directory?!

RE: CATIA will not start

I did check that and everything checked out.. all the paths in the CATEnv point to the correct directories.

I did find the solution. It was an outdated Graphics Driver. After I updated it everything worked fine.

Thanks for your suggestion though. I appreciate it.
