Can't mesh with solid elements

Has anyone else had any problems meshing solids in Simulation 2009 SP0?

I am using Vista x64 on a brand new machine. My computer is a Core 2 Quad Q9550 with 8GB DDR2 RAM. This is a brand new installation of SolidWorks 2009 SP0, but I also had this problem with 2009 PR1.

I can mesh with shell and beam elements, but when I try to mesh with solids, I get a message that meshing failed. This happens regardless of the complexity of the part. I have tried parts with studies set up in 2008 version, which work fine in 2008 and they fail in 2009. I have tried just creating a very simple prismatic body and it fails. I have tried Open GL model to rule out the GC. I have tried renaming the registry folder. My VAR has been on this for several weeks with no success.
