    Chart panel completely grey

      I just installed Tableau 8.0 and 8.1 on my Windows 7 x64 machine. I tried to create a simple bar chart using the sample datasources and I can see only a gray box on Tableau 8.0. However, the same chart on Tableau 8.1 works just fine. I found another thread with the same issue, but I was not able to fix this issue by restarting Tableau, reinstalling the app or even rebooting the machine.

      * Notice that the preview thumbnail shows the chart bars.

      I would use Tableau 8.1 if I could, but I have to create my workbooks using 8.0 since I need to publish then to Tableau Server afterwards.
