I'm using MatLab R2013b with Simscape & SimMechanics. When I open `sm_four_bar` on one PC (with GeForce GT 720), I could run the simulation, but the Mechanics Explorer shows nothing (I tried changing views but it didn't work). On another PC with integrated graphics, the animation shows properly. I wonder what is happening and how I could work around this issue?

Hi,
Once I had the same problem with my Geforce graphic card not only when using Matlab but also many other engineering software. For the Matlab case, disabling the geforce driver from device manager could allow me to watch visualizations on the mechanics explorer window of the simmechanics.
Wish this helps,
Pouya

Hello,
I manually updated my nvidia graphics card (GT 540M) driver (v391.35) and the problem is solved.
Best,
Hakan
