If a problem occurs, ask the end users to update the driver of their video card.

  • have a display mode greater than 256 colors.
  • be in 32-bit or 64-bit mode.
  • run on Windows Vista or later.
  • use the maximum level of "Hardware acceleration" for the video card (advanced display properties of the computer).
