UPDATE - we found a solution:

Alibre support had me turn off the switchable graphics support in the TP500 (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/sit...)

After the first reboot, the hardware was recognized, but the ATI driver was not properly loaded; but after the second reboots, the ATI driver was installed correctly.

Then, Alibre worked.

Original description:
I have a Thinkpad T500 the switchable graphics ATI Radeon 3450 for accelerated 3D/OpenGL support. I got this to be able to run CAD software. Unfortunately, there is a bug and Alibre Designer will not render reference line when used with the ATI Radeon driver. This is not good, as reference lines are very much needed while drawing designs.

I have installed the very latest ATI drivers and Catalyst Control Center, per Lenovo ( http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/... ) -- my CCC currently shows:
Item Value
Driver Packaging Version 8.563.2.1-090401a-079160c-Lenovo
Provider ATI Technologies Inc.
2D Driver Version
2D Driver File Path /REGISTRY/MPCH INE/SYSTEM/ControlSe
Direct3D Version
OpenGL Version
Catalyst® Control Center Version 2009.0401.1328.22301
