Hi.. I replied to this thread about a day back.. but the archives don't
show my message so I'm assuming something went wrong.
Anyway, your suggestion worked perfectly and now SD works again..
However, I have been using SD (1.4.x) for a few months now and this has
never happened before.
Doesn't that rule out the grachics card?
Also, I noticed that the console windows was showing some other errors
which were to do with reading xml files. The errors were displayed when
I opened the "SELECT DRIVERS" menu.
There were several errors showing that files in
speed-dreams.settings/Drivers weren't being read properly. .. are there
any stock files I can paste here as well? thanks in advance.
