Cabinet Vision Graphics Problem

11/18/15       
Keith Godwin Member

I am running R2011 Build 112. About (3) weeks ago, the graphics for my glass doors with grills quit working properly. The center stiles appear "hollow". If you rotate the door to the back side, they look normal. The problem is ONLY with doors with shaped top rails. I haven't downloaded any new CV versions or updates so I can't understand why it is doing this. Please, let me know if you have had this problem. A new graphics card didn't help.

No I didn't. I tried 10 at home and really didn't like it so I went back to 7. It's weird Jim. It's only that center stile in a glass door with a shaped top rail. Everything else works great.

It's hard to tell without seeing the problem, but maybe something (like shaped parts can cause wacky issues) is changing the size of your glass panels . Causing the panels to overlap the center stile and make them look transparent.

I know this sounds strange, but check the materials schedule

I want to comment on the windows 10 I by mistake let my laptop upgrade to windows 10 pro. With that said I have used CV without issue. I know people have had problems with it so I am not sure why it works for some and not others.

I decided to spend some time learning CV (I use CW) after loading on all my new upgraded computers with AMD r9 cards, the screen below is the best I get and it only happens in the working room,

Some CV people have been to the shop and confirmed the problem, Not sure if it is fixed and I will em them and ask

AMD video is a known problem with Solid. So are some Logitech mice apparently. Or at least the software that comes with them.

You can disable the vid card and it will work , yesterday I switched to a 4gig NVidia GeForce 970 and it fixed the problem, I am sure 2 gig will do for most

I had an AMD card which those at Vero told me was the problem

Got another response with this solution for some

set your appearance to Windows 7 basic as opposed to what it is set to by default,

I was having the same problem with CV version 9 and an AMD 6450 video card. I discovered that if I disable the video card via the device manager... then open CV version 9... go back to device manager and enable the video card... the graphics issue is not present... only when I open CV with the video card enabled is the issue present.

This is a pain in the butt to have to do this but graphics are smother and faster with card enabled than with the standard Windows driver active.

i want to say Thank You to
Jay E wiggitnon for the work around solution! my machine has an AMD 8670D
video card and i'm running ver. 5.0 (i know it's a dinosaur but i own R11 and see only trivial improvements so why change?)
the solution gets me up and working without any hardware upgrades. Thanks again!

I contacted Cabinet Vision or whoever they are this week back first of the year. Spoke with my rep.. I don't pay for support and updates because it's too expensive, but I have this problem, is there anything I can do? Yes. We can do a one time incident with tech dept for $100 dollars. So I said I've either got a video card problem or there is a glitch in the program graphics. Now the tech is on the phone. So I said I've either got a video card problem or there is a glitch in the program graphics. After getting on my computer and looking into the problem, the tech guy said, you've either got a video card problem or there is a glitch in the program graphics. So, I get a bill for not $100 but $107. Let's not forget local sales tax! WHAT!? On a tech support call! Some things never change. I've been using CV since late '80's. Same old story.

I need a new (affordable) laptop.
The one I'm looking at has AMD.
I'd be okay with using the the on\off tweak but I noticed this in the laptop description.
"It has an AMD A9-9420 3GHz processor and AMD Radeon R5 video adapter but no dedicated video memory."
Would that mean the on\off tweak might not work?

Cabinet Vision just does not play well with AMD graphics cards it sucks but it is well documented

  • Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
  • Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
  • Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
  • Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
  • Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
  • Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).

    The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk.
