When Alice starts, a Welcome dialog box is displayed, as shown below. The Welcome dialog box has four tabs and the Templates tab is automatically selected. Choose any one of the templates or click on one of the other tabs to select a previously written Alice project.

 

The red X message in the bottom left of the window is a warning message that indicates a template or a previous project must be selected in this window in order to display a scene. If the Cancel button in the dialog box is clicked without selecting a template or a previously written project, Alice will close the Welcome dialog box without displaying the Code editor. To reopen the Welcome dialog box, click File in the menu bar at the top left of the Alice window and select New from the menu.

 

Welcome dialog box

 

Upon successful selection of a template, Alice will display the selected template scene in the upper left corner of the Code Editor, as shown. (The display may vary somewhat, but the basic organization should be the same.)

 

Start Screen, Code Editor

 


Troubleshooting: PC display driver updates

  

If Alice does not start or if the templates are not properly displayed, the display driver on the computer system may need to be updated. For Windows PC users, we advise updating the display driver directly from the display card manufacturer website (rather than using Windows Update). See the following instructions.

 

 Updating video drivers.
