3D viewer not showing components, only the pcb

Post subject:  3D viewer not showing components, only the pcb

After upgrading to V3.1.0.1 (64bit) on a W10 PC, I can't get 3D modelling to work again.

Eventually, I ended up deleting the models3d directory and downloaded and installed the 3D libraries again.
I made sure that they installed in C:\Program Files\DipTrace, where the rest of the software is located.
My path to the models is correct in the Pattern and Model Search dialog box.

When I invoke 3D Visualization, I only get the model of an LED showing, but nothing else.
When I remove the tick for components, and redraw, the PCB shows correctly. Obviously without components.

When I add the tick for components and select Redraw, there is the normal activity showing, then the display blanks for a moment, and I'm back to the single model of an LED.

When I go through the model selection process for my components, all the component models load, but even when I add them to the project, the result is the same.

What am I doing wrong?
