How should I go about updating the driver? The only way I know of is to look in the "Hardware Optional" section of microsoft update. Is this the only way to update the driver?

By the way when installed the graphics card windows found the drivers and installed it by itself.

Thanks.

I saw the snowman challenge as well... unfortunately I can't participate either as I use a MacBook. You'll have to check the rules, I believe a requirement is the use of that application.

Unfortunately I believe you are right Do you have any idea why the 123d software isn't working on my computer.

I get this error when I try to start the software:

Runtime Error! Please repair or reinstall the program.
We’re sorry, there was an error while initializing the graphics subsystem. This is likely due to one or more of the following: your graphics driver is not configured for "True Color", there was a problem installing the application, the application installation was damaged, or some other problem with the graphics hardware and drivers or the configuration of the application. More detailed information may be included below.

END OF ERROR

Here are the specifications of the computer that I am using.

Visiontek radeon 7000 series

IBM xSeries 206
2.8GHZ Hyper Threading CPU
1GB 266MHZ ECC Memory
80GB Serial Hard Drive
Windows XP pro service pack three

I don't know if you might have any ideas why this is.

Thanks

Well the error message seems to point to an issue with your graphics card. It doesn't look as though you meet the minimum requirements. Without looking up the system requirements to run 123D, I'm not certain... but, what you can do is update the driver on your graphics card and then try to reinstall the software. If that doesn't work then you're likely out of luck (unless you start replacing component(s). You could also post this question on the 123D website, but I think you'll just get the same answer. (sorry)
