Anyone know why it doesn't start on my vista machine.
Runs fine on my 7 64bit machine.. Should run fine on Vista..
Does it give an error?
Maybe do the normal checks like redo the AGP driver, Display driver, reinstall DX... Maybe install or run it as administrator..
I've had some of the 3Dmarks be picky on 2000 and 2003 about installing without compatibility mode or being run as admin.
Maybe install with compat for XP or even 98..
When I try to launch it, Vista switches off Aero and the process runs in task manager but no window.
Setting it to compatibility mode windows 98 makes it crash with 3DMark MFC Application has stopped working
This is a PCI-E system. Display driver seems to work because other benchmarks/games work. Tried run as administrator and no effect.
Strangely, 3dmark 2000 works fine
