When running Liquid XML 2015 on a Windows Virtual Machine in VMware, the graphical display may not display correctly. This can be resolved by turning off graphics acceleration in the VMware layer.
In VM Settings->Display set the value:
Accelerate 3D Graphics = OFF
(Supports DirectX 9.0EX with Aero and OpenGL 2.1)
This is a common issue when running Microsoft WPF based applications on VMware.
