Video-Insight render error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using video-insight, a security camera application, I receive the error:
    Error: Cannot initialize renderer (0x80040154)
    Some of the screens show, some do not. The ones that do not, show this error.

    This program worked correctly under windows XP

  • gwirth,

    Can you provide some details on what video hardware and corresponding driver you're using? I'd recommend running the software in compatibility mode for Windows XP. To do this, right click on the program .exe and open the Properties menu, then navigate to the compatibility tab and select "Run this program in compatibility mode for..."

  • compat mode did not seem to make any difference
    Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family
    The driver is the one that win7 installed, its signed by intel.
    igxpmp32.sys version
    Not sure if that is the driver info you want.

  • I know this is old, but it was the first hit i found when I had this issue.  VI tech support led us to:

    in the VI Monitor Station go to Tools -> Options, and uncheck "Use DirectShow".    Video Insight uses an older version of DirectX, so you can either load DirectX7, or just uncheck that box.
