Panda 1.60 startup errors in Xp

:display:wgldisplay(error): SetPixelFormat(57) failed after window create
:display(error): Window wouldn't open; abandoning window.
:ShowBase(warning): Unable to open 'onscreen' window.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 13, in <module>
    import direct.directbase.DirectStart
  File "C:\P3D-160\direct\directbase\", line 4, in <module>
  File "C:\P3D-160\direct\showbase\", line 229, in __init__
    self.openDefaultWindow(startDirect = False, props=props)
  File "C:\P3D-160\direct\showbase\", line 726, in openDefaultWindow
    raise StandardError, 'Could not open window.'
StandardError: Could not open window.

My setup:
Windows XP SP3
Directx 9.0c
Color Depth: 32
This Config.prc edits didn’t work:

  • load-display pandadx9
  • depth-bits 1
  • color-bits 1

There is something else I can try??

hm i can just guess. but “wgldisplayerror” indicates its still set to openGL.
i’m not an expert when it comes to windows and dx stuff. but dx should not throw an opengl error.

btw. it’s easier to work out sollutions for a problem if all information regarding a specific problem is available in one thread.
