Dear Chimera developers,

I just bought the Nvidia 3D Vision Kit, because i was interested in the 3D Visualisation of it. First I tried it with the latest drivers from Nvidia's Homepage. (Quadro Driver Version: 258.49 & 3Dvision 258.49 ). I changed the Settings in the NV Control Panel (for Stereo output). Sequential Stereo worked fine in an other 3D Application. But when i change the view settings in chimera (sequential Stereo) i get that error: (After The Error MSG ist Quits and displays the Exit Code 3)

Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Chimera\bin\pythonw.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Then i was looking for hints to solve that problem i found following article.  http://plato.cgl.ucsf.edu/pipermail/chimera-users/2010-May/005173.html

There you mentioned that its probably a problem with the "new" drivers (197.XX). So I installed the driver that had been recommended by you. (Quadro Drv. 191.87 + 3D Vision 191.00). The Problem was that this 3D Vision driver won't support my LCD, its an Acer GD245HQ). I have installing it "manually" it won't activate the shutter glasses when Sequential Stereo is switched "on" in chimera (Shutter doesnt even work in games or any other Application) That means that the 3D-Vision driver is to blame. 197.03 Will recognize my LCD, but that won't work with chimera.

Tried also QDRO 191.87 & 3DVision 258.49 (but theres no way to run the 3DVision Setup)

Have you got an idea on how to fix that Problem? That would be really great!

This is my System Configuration:
Intel Pentium E5200 @ 3.5GHz
PNY Quadro FX 570
4GB Ram
Windows 7 64 Bit
Acer GD245HQ

Thank you so much for your help!
