It's not a graphics driver issue. Drivers abort with blue screens, not
application aborts. All the same, the graphics drivers were updated
recently, just a few weeks ago, to support additional CUDA and PhysX
features. There are no other issues of any kind with any other application.
The SU website is a little odd. It doesn't list the version number or date
of the latest update. I did check, but didn't find a version number, so I
didn't update. As far as I could tell, it's the same version I already have.
No worries. I got the job done some other way. It was just as well. I wanted
to see if SW can unroll a lofted, developed surface to a flat shape. I'm
building a 14 ft. lap straked sailboat this summer, and wanted to preview
the planking. It works well enough for simple shapes. If you're interested
in such things.
Or, you might take a look at the 'system event log' and the 'applications log'
both of which are viewed with the event viewer, usually located under
'administrative tools' on the program menu. Usually catastrophic errors are
prefaced by a RED ICON and convey the error message to someone who has actually
diagnosed a computer before. Your computer buddy wouldn't likely need or
understand the info as it sounds like he is a "shotgunner" who simply makes a
guess and then replaces parts until it works again. My educated (ha!) guess
would be software related, more than likely downlevel or missing OS modules
(dll's). I was always better with a rifle, however. regards, Joe.
