Lazy Cam/ Mach 3 error question
« on: December 22, 2009, 01:09:10 PM »
not sure what the minimum system requirements are for mach3 and LazyCam but I keep getting an OpenGL error every time I try to load a drawing from lazyCam to Mach3. anyone know if I just need a graphics card or is there a setting somewhere that would fix this?

for the record its a Dell GX280 3gh CPU with 2gb RAM using the on-board Graphics.

its controlling a HobbyCNC pro driver board (don't think that matters but just in case)

Thanks
Jon

See if you can get an updated driver for the graphics.

My computer gave me the same error tonight. I'm running Mach3 3.042.035 on a ABIT BH7 1.8GHz, 2GB Ram, ATI All in Wonder 9700 Pro 128MB, with the latest video drivers. I tried to launch lazy cam from my desktop and from Mach 3 and both ways received the Gl error.

Well, in my case, Lazy Cam won't even start.....it just returns the error. I saved the crash report and will upload it tomorrow, if it will help.

Thank you,

I don't know folks. Never had a problem and have seen it installed on probably 15 different computers ranging from
 an "old dead dog "to some high end ones.  ???

Here is the crash file that was generated when I tried to launch Lazy Cam. I had installed Mach3 on this machine multiple times until the 035 fix the other day worked for me. Could there be a remnant from a previous install causing the conflict?

I thought I had Lazy Cam working on this machine (with this V-Card) at one time.....but it may have been the other computer i have.....hard to believe that an ATI 9700 pro with the latest drivers isn't compatible.

Looking for help.
