Why won't my paraview work?


I recently had Paraview up and running on my computer, but now it seems that it won’t even open anymore! My laptop is less than a year old, so I suspect it isn’t that, but I’ve tried uninstalling and re-downloading multiple times to no avail! I’m running on Windows 11, and get a blank screen with an output message box. Please help!


Try removing your config files: https://www.paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView_Settings_Files

Ideally, keep a copy somewhere and share them here.


I’m really sorry, I have no idea what that means atall!

  • Open your file explorer
  • Put this as the adress: %APPDATA%\ParaView
  • Delete all files there
  • run ParaView again.


Thanks for this. I’ve given this a try but I’m still getting the same problem. I’ve deleted everything associated with paraview from laptop, and still it’s not happeneing. Any other ideas on how to sort it?

Maybe driver issue, please try the following:


I’m sorry, I appreciate the help but I really don’t understand what that’s trying to show. I haven’t got the foggiest when it comes to computers.
