I recently bought a laptop with vista home premium, 2gb ram and an integrated GMA 4500 graphics card. I installed Maya 8.5 on it. Now I am having problems.
-First I cannot use the hypershade and graph editor windows because they are grayed out.
- I disable some features in the compatability tab of the icon. It seem to work, now every time I close the Graph Editor or Hypershade window, it screws up with all the view panels.
I will have to toggle through all the custom panel layouts before I hit the one the brings back my panels.
This is very annoying for it means that I can only do modeling on that machine.
I also find it odd because with my old laptop that ran Windows XP with 512mb of ram and an intergrated GMA 900 Graphic card Maya 8.5 runs without any technical issues at all.
Vista does not seem to like it very much.
Is there anything I can do to get Maya working properly with vista? Is Vista even the problem?
