PebblesPebbles EnglandMember Posts: 173
I'm a bit of a technophobe so prepared to admit this problem is likely user error.

I have tried several times now to download from Bricklink but when it has finished installing I open the shortcut to be greeted with a black screen.

Please can someone tell me what I might be doing wrong.

Thank you.

    Not yet as i've only just downloaded it, so I wanted to check if i'm doing something wrong.

    Managed to find their forums and the top post is also people experiencing the same problem. No word on how to fix it but it seems i'm not alone in experiencing the black screen. :(

    Slightly disappointed as I was hoping it was my fault and it could easily be fixed, but it seems to have been happening for some time now; November of last year. So I might have to give up on using the program.

    Any ideas on other virtual build programs?

    LDD and LDraw.

    Thank you i'll have a look, do they also allow you to send the parts list to bricklink? That would have been a useful feature if was working.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 18,026
    You can export files from both then input to, but if you cannot get to work, it will not be possible that way.

    There have been various apps and websites that will convert LDD or LDraw files to bricklink want lists over the years, a google search will probably find up to date ones that work / are current.

    Thank you, i'll try them out later and see if they work. It's a shame there's not been any fix for the problem, but at least I know it's not my fault it won't work. Fingers crossed I have more success with the other programs

    There is also, which is totally web-browser based. They also have a feature to export the model inventory as a Bricklink XML file, and you can import LDD files (but not LDRAW or files as far as I am aware).

    You can upload LXF (LDD files) or MPD/LDR (LDraw files) to a custom list on & generate a BrickLink XML file.

    Thank you, i've had a quick play around with LDD and seem to be getting on ok. It's good to know when I get to the end of a project I can Bricklink the pieces :)

    Appreciate this is an old thread, but I had the same issue when installing Studio & Studio v2. 

    In my case, I fixed it by updating my GeForce driver with this version :

    Fresh install as i have not had studio before

    Nvidia driver is up to date
    tried turning it off for this program only and using integrated driver, still no success
