I have built a 3d application with 2 canvas3d's set into a swing application.
It was running fine on several machines. On one particular machine it suddenly
stopped working. The swing areas are fine, just the canvases are blank. I have
deleted and replaces my java files, reinstalled java3d, to no avail. The user
says she installed visio since the last time it worked.

Any ideas?

Color of display was set to 256 and the 3d components were therefore not
painting. took a week of searching settings, reinstalling, etc to figure this
out. Hope my pain and suffering helps someone else avoid this issue!
