Problem Running Anim8or
« on: November 27, 2009, 10:03:46 pm »

I bought a new laptop, it is a Toshiba Satellite T135 (Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit). DirectX 11, my graphics chip is a Mobile Intel(R) 4 series express chip set family.

Now, when i click on the icon to open it, my mouse changes to 'busy' for about 4 seconds then it goes back to normal and nothing happens, the window does not even appear.

Yes, I have tried to run as administrator and with windows xp service pack 2 and the result is the same.

I guess the first question anyone would ask is which version of anim8or is it? I used to have .95 on a SP1 (refused to upgrade to SP2) WinXP laptop, now I have it on a Vista laptop and while there are issues it still runs.

It works for me, when I use XP service pack 3 compatibility mode and disable desktop composition

I don't know for sure if this is your problem, but laptops with integrated graphics chipsets are notorious for graphics-related problems.   It's a bit late to mention it, but you're far better off getting a laptop that will accommodate a separate graphics card.  For instance, both of my old Dell laptops allowed me to specify that I wanted it configured with an nVidia graphics card.  In any case, make sure you've got the most up-to-date graphics drivers loaded.
