In my quest for learning Cg model shading (started here) I’ve tried to install Nvidia’s CgFX Viewer, but much to my surprise it denied installation with the following message:
Does anyone have any experience with that? I’ll try to find a workaround myself, I just thought it odd that official Nvidia tools require a much older version of Cg than what Panda3D supplies - and that the latter is found at all. Which Cg version does Panda3D use, anyhow? 1.4 seems to be the latest, 1.2 is out for quite a while longer, but Nvidia content creation tools all require 1.1…
And since I took this screenshot, I wanted to resize it - and installed GIMP w/GTK. And what do you know - their installers also complain about Panda3D, this time with the following message:
I chose not to rename the existing files, of course - but that those installers also found and complained about Panda3D is quite remarkable to me. Does Panda3D register all its DLLs that thoroughly that they’re so easily found upon a system check?
I had some trouble with GIMP not starting up properly, so I decided to re-install it together with GTK+. Panda3D 1.05 is long gone, and Panda3D 1.1.0 (beta) doesn’t give GTK any more trouble - all the DLLs it previously complained about aren’t part of Panda3D anymore.
I’ll soon try again with CgFX View, too, so once I know more about it I willl post an update on this issue as well. Thanks a lot so far!
Ah, that reminds me of another change in panda 1.1.
If you go into the panda bin directory, you can find these DLL’s:
and so forth…
no more DLL conflicts in that department, I hope. But Cg.dll is a bigger problem. I can’t rename it because they don’t provide source code, so I can’t recompile it with a new name. I don’t have a solution.
