Hi Luo,

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble running GPA.  Thank you for providing the info you have!

I am assuming you are trying to run the sample GPASample from within the GPA install folder.

I tried to replicate your issue, but I have not had any luck.  From the info you provided, it looks like you are using an older computer (based on the gfx driver and driver version).  It looks to me like you are using a gfx card from ~2010 (IronLake).  The oldest one I have access to is from ~2012 - (Ivy Bridge).

I was able to capture a frame from GPASample and successfully play it back within Frame Analyzer on a Win 7 64bit machine.

I do have a few suggestions that may help you:

- Are you able to update you gfx drivers?

- Are you able to use a machine with more that 4GB or RAM?  I don't think this is necessary, but it does help to have at least 8GB

- Are you able to use a machine with a more recent gfx card?
