View Full Version : Error Creating Direct3D device

11-24-2013, 05:41 PM
Version 17W. Has happened 4-5 times so far today. Happens when I'm selecting the checkbox for preview display, usually after I've been working in it for 5-10 minutes. As soon as I check the box for the preview display window to pop up, the window pops up, but it's solid black - no photo, no nothing. And somewhere in the windows stack is a popup saying "Error Creating Direct3D device". Never been a problem before 17W (although I've only been using the software for about a week starting with 17R). Can't find anything in the Windows event viewer that might help, though.

Try Preview Menu -- reposition Preview Upper Left Corner.

Two thing have changed recently.

1. I keep track of where you move your Preview to and then open it in that location --- I think THAT may be your issue -- not a good saved location.

2. I've removed the minimize button.
