No problems with 4.3.18 or .34 here

Did you accidentally turn off "Use LOR Vis" in the LOR control panel?

Tried a reboot?.

See if an uninstall and reinstall helps.

Any changes, windows upgrades, graphics drivers, etc.

Try updating graphics drivers.

I tried the unistall, no changes to anything that i can think of. Not sure what the Visualizer runs off.

Check the open gl portion of the video drivers, probably just update the whole graphics driver set.

I don't remember where it is but a long timex ago Devmike posted a list of things to do if Visualizer was not working.

What is your Win 10 version. 1903 has been known to have caused a few headaches. Mine updated while I was on vacation, screwed up my network permissions

I’m hoping my show computer is good. I turned it on for the first time in almost a year yesterday.

I thought I turned off auto update but there was over 100 updates pending. Of course they started auto so hope nothing changed.

Oh I hate the May everything is linked to an email account these days.

Lets go back to MSDOS or the 12” floppies.

Playing video is just a small part of what the drivers do.

Have you looked through the stickies in the Visualizer section of the forums.

This one might help

One more thought.

Do yo have a visualizer file that auto loads on startup. Could it be damaged, crashing the program. Move it where the visualizer can't find it .

Oh, and have you ever had more than one monitor attached to which the visualizer was assigned.

We had 12” floppies use along with the old Green Machines in the USMC.

They were basically indestructible.

What error message do you receive when you try and open Visualizer?

All I get is the small information screen that shows what version I have and me license number. And at the top it reads not responding.

Yes! You must periodically restart pc. Not shut down - but restart. There is an internal clock that needs reset in visualizer....

Well, I will somewhat join your club.

Mine will open and I can open an existing vis file, however it will not load “properly” my new config file nor will it let me modify an existing vis file.

When I try to create a new vis the curser (pencil) is there but it won’t let me draw a string or strand. Just a dot.

Now I am forced to view individual props instead of a full vis.

I know support is gone or going away due to S5 but perhaps someone knows a fix for both of our problems.
