Your machine contains a 3D Device that is not certified.

But it is. It is listed at the Autodesk Website and in
AdskHwCertificationDatabase.xml. The performance tuner log correctly
identifies my adaptor and driver, yet also claims it is not certified and
defaults to software acceleration. How do I get it to recognize my certified
driver?

This happens in Inventor a lot too. It doesn't really affect anything and you should be able to work normally.

Post the contects of your tuner log here so we can verify your certified driver.

I just got my ACAD 2007 today.

Could you please post the contents of your tuner log? Without knowing what
video card you have and driver it is very hard for anyone to help you.

Thanks,

Alexander

I know that AutoCAD 2007 just came out, but a suggestion.

Please get together with the Inventor folks and coordinate the certified
video drivers.
I looked at the certified video driver web sites for both AutoCAD 2007 and
Inventor 11
for my video card and they list different versions of the drivers. I use
both Inventor and
AutoCAD and would like certified drivers for both.

I have a Nvidia Quadro FX 3000 video card.

Thanks,
Phil

Could you let me know what version of the driver you have? This card is only certified for driver 81.67

If you could paste the contents of the performance tuner log, it would make it a lot easier to figure out what the problem is.

I am using driver 81.67 and everything is working fine. What I am saying is the Inventor list says I will need driver 81.72 for Inventor 11.
It would be nice if one driver would be certified for both AutoCAD and Inventor.

Okay, maybe I was misled by the "Certified by" > "Autodesk" entry in the
table. Seems even the unsupported cards have this entry. My card does not
have the "Autodesk Certified" symbol.

That is correct, your card is supported but not recommended, so it is not a
certified card.

You can use OpenGL, but you may have the problems listed on the website.

Thanks,

It still seems odd that the database recommended effect values do not show
up when I click on "reset to recommended values"
