can't see subs in diagram

hi,

after installing Labview51 on NT4.0 SP6a I cannot see sub-VI icons on
the diagram window when the icon is in color. I can click them and move
them around but once I click something else they disappear. The only
solution I found was changing the icons to black&white.
Is there a better way?

Thanks,

Detlef

Here is the answer...

usually I don't answer my own questions but I figured it out myself-
maybe someone wants to know...

Labview does not support the True Color setting (display setup).
Reducing to xx Millions does it.

Very nice, NI, nice feature. One dollar each bug I find would make me
rich...

Actually, LV does support True Color, thousands, 256, 16, and even Black
and White if you can get your machine to show it. The
re are often
subtle problems with video drivers; so you might want to get the latest
version from the manufacturer's site and see if that doesn't fix it. If
not, please contact technical support to report bugs so that they can be resolved.
