This is by far the most common issue that new Z-Brush users run into all the time. It should really be dealt with by Pixelogic.

try just using the good old displacement modifier and instance a bitmap from you material editor, it work for me! i couldn't get Vray displacments to work either. i also tried mental ray but that did work it just crashed!
