Help! Solid Edge 2D installs but will not run

N/A

Help Please!
I have SE2d installed but when I attempt to run the software the SE splash screen
comes up then the SE appears to be loading but then the software shuts down. The
window just dissapears. I get no error messages. When checking Task Manager there
is no sign of SE in the Aplications or Processes tabs.
I have just swapped out motherboards and freshly installed XP Home running on AMD
Athlon XP 2800. I had the same behavior on the previous motherboard and thought
I could have had a bad XP install but now I'm completely stumped. I have also tried
redownloading th file and a fresh install to no avail.

Thanks for the response. Im running a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200. Was wondering myself
if this could be the problem and apologize for omitting the video card from my system
specs in the original post.

Don,
Here are a few things to try.
Clean up your temp directory.
Ensure you have enough page file size. Typically you want about 2 times the RAM.
Disable the hardware acceleration on the graphics card. If this works, you can start
moving it back up to find the best setting.
