Instable Post, Pre and Build
Hi all,

For some reason Post, Pre, and Build seem to hang after a few movements / rotations of my model. Does anyone know why? Did anyone have such features before?

I have reinstalled Windows (NT4) and CFX but this does not help. Could it be a hardware problem?

Open the troubleshooting panel in you display preferences and reduce the graphics acceleration. It may help to finally upgrade to Windows 2000 as well!

It is very difficult to answer the question if it could be a hardware problem when you don't provide any information about your hardware! Are you running it through a network or is it alocal installion. Does your graphic card support open GL, and how much memory do you have etc....

I also have such problems. I`m using CFX 5.6 on Windows 2000 with GeForce4 graphic card. In my case CFX-Pre seems to be very instable with relatively average mesh(around 600k cells). It did not crashed, but interface become unusable in case of opening various widgets. I reinstalled graphics drivers, but everything stays in same state. CFX-Post also crashed many times after I edited some objects and trying to manipulate view.

I have WinNT4-SP6 with GeForce2. This could be the problem. I will check it further.
