I always tell people the exact same, that viewer 2, and viewer 1 for that matter, are obsolete.
There are better, and also lighter viewers, out there than viewer 2, with less issues, that can run on older machines and work better than viewer 2 ever will.
Actually for my Materials Introduction post, I listed all viewers that can properly see materials, and they are confirmed to also see Fitted Mesh properly.
So let me make it easy, and edit that part in here, rather than link to the topic:
Confirmed viewers that can display Materials correctly:

All the latest versions of these viewers work.
Hope this helps folks out in finding a Viewer that fits their needs.
- Singularity is no longer being actively developed, but it is uptodate with Materials and Fitted Mesh
- CoolVL is my choise for light weight. I seen this viewer run happely on machines that were too old to run viewer 2.
