I try to update from version 2.0.52 a time ago and as a result the area where the content should be is black (see image).
Since I couldn't solve the situation I did a downgrade back.
Now I tried again, to version 2.1.26, and the problem persist.
Following the recomendations in the topic
"Hardware acceleration and startup issues on Windows/Linux" I tryed to execute the command
echo auto > %APPDATA%\Anki2\gldriver
with the three options, auto, angle, sofware, one at a time, with no avail.

    Perhaps updating your video drivers may help.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Unfortunately updating the video drivers didn't solve the problem. :(
    Guess I will have to maintain the version 2.0.52 of Anki until I have the opportunity to acquire a new computer...
