[Chimera-users] Chimera, Python, WindowsXP or AMD64 conflict?

A couple of possibilities.

First check to see if there are any graphics driver updates for your 
computer.  If so, please upgrade and see if the problem still exists.
I've also attached a program, wglinfo.exe, that prints out the OpenGL 
capabilities of your graphics driver.  If you send me the output, it would 
give me some more clues.

We have seen that error message occasionally when chimera exits.  So maybe 
there's some other error that is reported first?  Run chimera with the 
--debug option (right mouse click on the chimera shortcut, select 
Properties from the menu, and add --debug to the end of the Target: field) 
and see if anything useful appears in the chimera console window.  You can 
copy the text from the console window by right mouse clicking on the 
console window's title bar and first doing a "select all" followed by a 
"copy" and then you can paste that text in another window to email to me.

I hope one of the two scenarios above explains your problem, if not we 
will need to dig deeper.
