First thing, unless now done, is you need to change the Windows Permissions for your local OneDrive to Full (Read and Write).
But more importantly, unless you have a very fast ultra broadband connection we do not recommend using OneDrive as the primary file space, as that is sycn'd to the online OneDrive of Microsoft. It may have been set up that way by default by Dell when configuring the system. Lumion Imported Model files can be very large, and our experience is that online file services with file sync can result in incorrect saves when Lumion files are still open and being saved.
So, check the Windows re-direct settings for your Documents folder. You may need to seek other support to help you check and set things to what's needed.
You can still use OneDrive as a backup or file copy.
The explanation about how your laptops graphics work leaves (to say the least) something to be desired.
Your laptop has an on-board graphics card chip - an Intel(R) HD Graphics 630 chip which can run basic Windows and non-graphics intensive applications. That chip is set as the default graphics.
It also has a dedicated NVIDIA graphics card/chip set - in the case of the XPS, a GTX 1050. To use the GTX 1050 for applications such as Lumion, you need to assign that application to use the required graphics system. The onboard Intel graphics is totally inadequate for Lumion.
To get Lumion to use the correct dedicated graphics card, please follow the steps in our Knowledge Base Article
: Why is your computer using an Intel HD graphics chip instead of the dedicated graphics card?
Please also note that the laptop with the GTX 1060 for laptop systems has a Passmark of no more than 4410 (possibly less by 20% with the NVIDIA Max-Q technology for laptops). That means the type of Scenes you can create in Lumion fit in to the Simple Scene
description. See Which graphics card do you need?
. Are those the types of scenes you will be using Lumion for?
