Okay now that I know it should I have tried it and it doesn't work.  The splash screen appears then it just disappears and nothing loads.  Previous versions (2011) complain of not having OpenGL support but my laptop has an nvidia 310m card with the latest drivers and its has worked on this machine previously...

Can you advise on how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks!

Panic over, for some reason and I'm not sure why... CityEngine installed itself with compatibility wizard set for Windows 7 when it didn't need it.  I've turned the compatibility settings off and CityEngine is work properly.  Hurrah!

Sorry to trouble you :)
