Windows 7 compatibility, continued

Hi All,

As you may know, there have been a few problems with running L3DT on Windows 7 using the Aero theme. I am pleased, and quite relieved, to announce that these problems should now be fixed in the latest developmental build of L3DT (v2.8 build 23), for systems with up-to-date graphics drivers. I have verified this build renders properly in Aero themes on Windows 7 Professional, using an NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT graphics card with driver version

The updated installers, in Standard, Professional and Pro for Torque are available from the usual places.

If problems persist...

If you find Windows is still resetting your graphics driver when running this build of L3DT, or the display freezes and then the system reboots, I strongly recommend you update the drivers for your graphics adapter.

If updating your drivers does not fix the problem, please file a bug report in this forum thread. When reporting this bug, please, remember to quote the type of graphics card you have, as well as the driver version. If you're not sure how to get this information, you should open the Windows Device manager, expand the display adapters tree node, right-click on the sub-item listed under display adapters, select the properties menu option, and then click on the drivers tab. This should result in a window looking something like this:


The relevant information to quote in your bug report are the adapter type (see window title), the driver version, and the driver date.

Best regards, Aaron.
