    Slow to start

    If load time has to be significant, it would be helpful if the splash screen had some kind of progress indicator while the software is loading. Applications such as Lightroom and CorelDraw have a status line saying things like, "Building GUI" or "Loading palettes" - I just made those up, but you get the idea.

    Slow to start

    I'm seeing similar start up times on Win7 (64-bit) quad-core i7, 16GB RAM - AP
  3. Hmm.. for both drivers, my display show DDI 10.1... which apparently may be how v11 is displayed in Win7. Still confused but I don't get the message so I won't worry about it. Thanks for your help
  4. No ideas on why the message might have appeared, I guess??
  5. Thanks for the pointer to the new driver, which I've now installed... I obviously hadn't checked for updates for a while! The DirectX error message doesn't appear now. However, it had stopped appearing with the older driver too, as I mentioned previously. The dxdiag output for the older driver did say DirectX11 was running so why would the message have appeared the first few runs?
  6. Thanks for the reply. Please see the attached dxdiag.txt file. DxDiag.txt
  7. I installed AP today and initially got a message about needing DirectX 10 but that AP had fallen back to some other graphics level. This message appeared the first two or three times I ran the software. I started investigating. My system has quite an old graphics card (NVidia GeForce 310) but according to dxdiag is running DirectX11 although the driver is version 9.18.xx - does this mean I'm actually using DirectX9? While investigating, I restarted the software a few times. Now the program starts without any message. How do I figure out exactly what it is doing or needs wrt graphics hardware? Thanks.
  8. +1 vote for a dimension tool. This is one thing I would miss moving from CorelDraw
