opencascade 5.1 on Windows XP

Hi, I intalled this software on S.O. Windows XP H.ed. italian version.
When I finish the configuartion steps, I try to use this software but does not work anything.
In windows programm, I find OPencascade 5.1 but every application I select doesn't start.
Can someone tell me what does he see under programm window and what does he select to start a project?

Do you get any error message, when you are going to samples->standard->mfc->geometry, for example?

What about environment variables? If they aren't set (especially CASROOT), the progs won't run.
If they aren't set, or are incorrect, they must be changed. CASROOT should point to c:\OpenCASCADE5.1\ros (for example)

Try starting one of the programs from the command line, you will be able to see any error messages it prints out.

Also, I think there is a batch file (*.bat) somewhere which includes the environment variables, try running it from the command prompt, then use that prompt to start one of the OCC programs.

Good luck

Hi, I reinstalled everything and probably it works now. I say probably because everything is very different from autocad, now I search any manual, guide that teach me step by step how to draw.
I'd like to learn by window version than to use linux version.
