TOPIC: [SOLVED]"Failed to initialize Direct3D"

[SOLVED]"Failed to initialize Direct3D" 4 years ago #889

Upon starting up Lightworks 10.0 Public Beta in Windows 7 I get the following error message:

"The Lightworks application failed to initialize with the following message: Failed to initialize Direct3D: Direct 3DCreate9 failed."

The program then quits. Any ideas?

Did you reboot after installing? What kind of graphics card do you have?

Turns out that the problem was that the driver for my video card wasn't correctly installed. After updating the driver from the Device Manager in Windows, uninstalling Lightworks, restarting, re-installing Lightworks and then restarting again, the program works smoothly. From trial and error I learned that I did indeed need to restart that many times.
