I'm also having this problem... I just installed parallels on my mac using windows 7. Downloaded Muvizu on the pc side and the installation completed just fine but when opening the Muvizu Play application I get this same message. Please let me know if/when you get an answer.

Thanx... Daisy

If Taffj was correct and the hardware was identical in all cases then I would suspect an out of date driver for the video card. What kind of video card do you have in your Mac?

Hi, I have checked that already and the drivers are all the same version numbers as well all match.

Then I'd be tempted to try this on one of the offending machines:-

Close Muvizu.


Take a copy of these two files:- BaseEngine.ini and MuvizuEngine.ini and save them somewhere with new names.



Open the two original files using notepad.

Find the line in each that says FloatingPointRenderTargets=True and change it to FloatingPointRenderTargets=False.

Make sure you save the files as .ini files and not .txt files.

See if it works. If it breaks things then replace these files with the copies (or just edit them back if you feel brave

You might want to back up any Muvizu .SET files etc beforehand but I honestly don't think they will be affected.

Like I say that is what I would do. But of course if you choose to try this it is entirely at your own risk

This error can occur if... Well, first and foremost, if your video card is not up to spec! But it can also happen if you lock your PC or perform some other resource-intensive task while Muvizu is starting up. Doing this can prevent Muvizu from getting info on your video card and so the app presumes that your video card is missing or not up to spec in some way and presents this error. Could you try starting Muvizu on these machines again but make sure that you do not lock or take the focus off Muvizu during startup and see if it still happens?

if it DOES still happen, could you let us know your video card details?

Thanks!
