Hi,

I have installed Autodesk showcase 2012 and when I try to open it up, I see an error saying " Autodesk Showcase 2012 SP1: window initialization failed. Your hardware configuration may not be supported". Please view the image below:

 

 

I have installed the service pack but still it showing the same error. Any suggestions and comments would be much appreciated,

 

Thanks.

thats a hardware problem

you need to upgrade your graphics card to run showcase

you can not run showcase on that video card

you need to talk to dell about upgrading the laptop

you can use this to determine a graphics card: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/cert?siteID=123112&id=16391880
