Hi

Is there a way to get TM to run in Windows 7? It has problems with OpenGL.
I tried running is as an admin in XP SP2 mode but it still wouldn't run.

Thanks

We've got a copy of Windows 7 in the mail, so we'll check it out when we have our own copy.

Is it giving you a specific error message? And have you installed the latest graphics drivers for your video card? See here for the Tread Marks FAQ.

Hi

It goes to the initial launcher dialog box screen, where you can select normal or high quality graphics at the top.

Then it resizes the desktop to 800x600 then 640x480 then resiezs back to original, pops open a blank window and a dialog box saying 'Critical error' and the message is 'Unable to initialise acceptable OpenGL rendering context!'

That definitely sounds like driver problem. Follow the instructions in the Tread Marks FAQ to find the right drivers for your graphics card.
