It has been a while since I last used GE.
I notice that there are to versions on the programs list.
DirectX and Open GL

When clicked OpenGL - the message came up - 'It will work but slowly go to Directx- Do you want DirectX as default.
So Yes
Well it opened and did a search- but it keeps locking up and freezing.

I appear to have DirectX9

Any remedies please

Re downloaded and installed.
When started it goes to the tips window.
Close to start and program shuts down.

Have now removed that and have pulled up an older version from 2007 that I have squirreled away on my external HDD
Installed it.
Got message to say there is a newer version
Ignored it and kept to the older version and it works faultlessly.

So it seems this latest version does not like me[XP Pro SP2] or me It
Why is that does any one have an inkling?
