    "No GPU available to the iray render" Nvidia Quadro P4000 not working with Visualize Solidworks 2016

    German Salcedo

      Hello,

       

      I just downloaded Visualize because I wanted to improve rendering speeds using my GPU but when I started rendering I noticed that the times were the sames as the ones on Photoview.

       

      I tried selecting manually rendering with the GPU and not hybrid but I got a message saying: "An internal error occurred. Please see log file for details". After checking log files this is what I found:

      I have the latest drivers from Nvidia and I checked as well that there were no SW processes running on the task manager.

       

      I don't know what else to do, what else can I do?

       

      Thanks!
