Graphics Optimizer

The Graphics Optimizer assesses system hardware and, based on the results, ensures the best visual experience of which your computer is capable. It is run during setup or when you run 3D XML Player for the first time and whenever you make hardware changes to your system. Depending on the graphics hardware on your computer, the user interface will change, with low-end machines getting a straightforward interface (e.g. a simple highlight) and high-end machines taking advantage of the richest graphical capabilities. For a better visual experience, we recommend upgrading your graphics card driver.


You must take into account the following considerations:

  • For Internet Explorer, you must modify your Internet Security options to authorize ActiveX execution when using it in Internet Explorer web browser).
  • S3 and XGI graphics cards are not supported.
  • On Windows Vista, we recommend turning off the Windows Aero user interface.
