ANOTHER SW RealView question from a Noobie

Hi Guys and Galls,

Noobie here.

Trying to sort out the RealView selection (which is currently greyed out) for SW2015.


I had my laptop built to run SW15 by 'spec' and it seems my graphics card is not on the 'Approved' list from SW.


Basis of Computer Spec is -

Samsung SSD 850EVO Solid State HD

NVIDEA GEFORCE GTX965M Graphics Card  and a built in Intel HD4600. The system is running the Nvidea as primary.

Intel Core i7 4720 (2.6GHz)

I'm on Windows 8.1. I have a free update to Windows 10, but I am also concerned that it will affect Solidworks, so I haven't updated as YET. Does anyone have any comments on this?


It currently RUNS solidworks fine. Laptop generates a bit of heat but nothing scary.


Even though the card should match the requirements, it wont let me open RealView.



Does anyone have a "Laymans vocabulary" suggestion on a way to 'unlock' RV, to a Noobie who doesn't really know his way around the back-end of his laptop  *Hello!*


Many thanks in advance!
