GL ES 2.0 PC Emulation freezing


#1

Hi,


I’ve been using the OpenGL ES 2.0 PowerVR SDK for a while now.


I just got a new laptop (MSI GX660) with a Radeon 5870 Mobility, and Win 7 Ultimate 64bits on it.


The thing is i can’t launch any exe using GLES2.0 on it, nor the samples.


They keep crashing (no message, really nothing visible, no PVRPFrame, not even the window) and i have to kill the process in the task manager.


I have to say that on my desktop computer (GeForce 8600GTS, Win 7 Ultimate 32bits), everything is working fine.





My drivers are the last Catalyst 10.12 WHQL.

Hmm


Rolling back to Catalyst 10.7, everything’s working fine.


The problem seems to be related to the PVRFRame and the latests Catalyst drivers.

Thanks for your post. W are aware of that issue. This is due to problems with recent ATI drivers (vista,windows7). We are working to workaround .

Thanks a lot.


Do you have an ETA for this fix (or the next release) ?
