PV 5.9.1 Will Not Launch on Windows 10

After what appears to be a successful installation of PV 5.9.1, when I attempt to launch the software, I see the following windows for only about 1 second before they disappear.

I’m running Windows 10 Enterprise with an NVIDIA Quadro RTX A4000 w/8GB GDDR6 video card. Any ideas for resolving this?

Can you try with pv 5.10 ?

Same result.

Make sure your NVIDIA card is being used for ParaView. You should be able to set this in the NVIDIA control panel.

I set PV to use the “High performance NVIDIA processor” in the NVIDIA control panel, but I get the same result. I added both PV 5.9.1 and 5.10…same result. Is there some type of log file that would indicate what specifically causes the crash?

Try recovering OpenGL info using pvpython:

This matter has been resolved. Turned out to be a conflict with an outdated Sentinel HASP driver related to different software. Once that driver was updated, PV started working for me. Thank you.
