This may indicate that your computer's hardware does not meet the requirement. To use 3D Topicscape's stunning graphics, even those of the Web View, you have to have modern graphics hardware and software installed on your PC. We've created a tiny, simple program called "glVersion" that will tell you in seconds if you can run 3D Topicscape.
The program simply checks your computer for the proper hardware and software. You can download and install our graphics checker here: Get glVersion
Finally, it may just be that your graphics driver (software built into Windows or supplied by your graphics adapter manufacturer) needs to be updated. The graphics checker will help with that as well and we recommend downloading the latest drivers from the supplier of your graphics card. The software glVersion will give web links that will usually help you to find the latest drivers.
