I don’t know if this is the right board for this, so please move it if its in the wrong forum. I need help. I have several CAD style applications that can not load files when OpenGL is loaded. This only happens on Core2Duo machines with nvidia cards. Here is the scenario:
I double click a file which should load my 3d software application for viewing the file (Similar to how you can open a document file to launch word). The application will load, however, it states that the file is not found. If i turn OpenGL rendering off, i can double click the file and load it just fine. Also, if OpenGL is enabled, i can drag and drop the file into the already open program and it loads the file.
Again, this is only happening on machines running nvidia cards on core2duo chips.
I have tested it with 4 different models of nvidia cards(8800gt,7900oc,fx570,fx1400), and 2 models of ati cards(HD2400pro, HD3850). All six machines are the exact same setup with the only exception of the video card.(C2D E8200 2.66Ghz, 4GB ram) They are all pulling the same file from the same remote location, as well as from their desktop.
My question is, does anybody know any possible work arounds short of buying ati cards for all these machines? Such as different drivers, possible bios settings,general settings or the like.
Thank you for reading my wall of text, and your help.
