I've been using the Solidworks 2014 Student Edition for about 18 months with no issues. The other day I booted up Solidworks to edit a file I had been working on a few days prior and the software will now show the graphics area. I still see the toolbars on the top of the screen and the bottom edge of the program but the main viewing area is completely transparent.
I've attached a screenshot of me running Solidworks with no other windows open.
I've also tried downloading the 2016 edition and am having the same problem. Could anyone point me in the right direction?
