Multisim wave window does not show

I have been using the Multisim that comes with Quartus Prime. For some reason, the Wave window will not show anymore. I run my TCL script to compile, Modelsim opens, and when I hover over the task bar icon, the Wave window appears to be open. But if I select it, nothing happens. Closing/opening Wave from the View menu makes no difference. It's like the Wave window is invisible. 

 

Does anyone know what to do in this situation?

It could be that the window is outside of the screen. Select the window in the task bar and use the WindowsKey+LeftArrow or RightArrow Key to move the window back on your screen.

I didn't have a chance to try this since Multisim stopped being able to launch at all, with vsim suddenly being an unrecognized command in Windows. I had to upgrade to Windows 10 anyway, so I did that as a fresh install and installed Multisim anew, which now works fine.

On the modelsim title bar there is a menu option "Layout / Reset", this restores the basic layout of Modelsim when you are a bit lost in the woods. 

A Wave window that is on an other window gets nicely docked in the main window with this command.

First time i had started the vwf simulation named "majority_vote" of the book from B.Dueck 2 edition in Quartus II Web v.4.0 it worked great, even after I had changed the wires as a test followed by a second successful simulation. 

But now I never get any good simulation and the Y output fails to show any result. I only managed to run the Inputs a,b and c right as a group in a binary value count. And any next retry only results in an completely empty Wave diagram.  

What do I have to reset or save correctly to end this problem? I even tried it over and over again by starting with the majority_vote.bdf file without success.

I just managed to resolve the wvf not showing any Y simulation value! 

 

Although I already had chosen the "Fit in window" option, I simply had to do this a second time to see the Simulation result completely. 

 

Something that I never expected and looks like some kind of bug in Quartus II Web v4.0 ??
