Hello -

We have seen problems on certain platforms when Direct 3D is enabled. Can you please check the following:

Even though you can't start McIDAS-V, you should be able to get to the configuration GUI that will give you the Advanced tab of the User Preferences. To do this, from a command prompt or terminal, cd to your McIDAS-V-System directory and run:

runMcV-Config

In the Advanced tab of the User Preferences window, can you make sure that the 3D > Enable Direct3D option is unchecked? If it is checked, please uncheck it, click OK, and try starting McIDAS-V again. If this does not help, can you please let me know the following:

1. What platform are you on (e.g. Windows 7 64-bit)
2. What version of McIDAS-V are you using
3. Did you just install McIDAS-V and see this problem, or have you been using McIDAS-V for a while and you just started seeing the error

Thanks -

Hello-

I think this may be the same Direct 3D type of issue bobc mentioned in his previous post.

-------------------
Again, can you please check the following:

Even though you can't start McIDAS-V, you should be able to get to the configuration GUI that will give you the Advanced tab of the User Preferences. To do this, from a command prompt or terminal, cd to your McIDAS-V-System directory and run:

runMcV-Config

In the Advanced tab of the User Preferences window, can you make sure that the 3D > Enable Direct3D option is unchecked? If it is checked, please uncheck it, click OK, and try starting McIDAS-V again.
-------------------

If this does not work we have made some changes that should fix these Direct 3D issues. I can give you a link to a new installer if you'd like to try them out.

Thanks, Jay
