    Same problem here, with ATI Radeon x600-256 MB RAM, Pentium 4 3.20 GHz and XPPro SP2. The compiler is PBCC 4.04.

      Well, its been a couple of days, and no official response yet.


      So.......... is there a possible fix for this? Maybe a workaround? Anything in the works?

      Do I need to change some settings in my video driver? They're all set to pretty much standard settings, for ATI.
      I'm out of ideas at this point, since nothing I do on my PC makes a difference, short of removing my video driver (not an option).

      Any official input would be appreciated.

      Thanks.

        It seems pretty obvious to me that this is an issue with the ATI driver, not a PB problem. IMO then, any "official word" would have to come from ATI, no?

        I mean really, think about it. If a piece of hardware I have causes MS Office (for example) to crash, is it MS problem? I'm 99.99999% sure they'd send me a polite response to change hardware, or contact the hardware manufacturer. In fact, that seems to be the message you see when there is a driver conflict and Windows crashes.

          Joe, while I agree that this does seem to point to some kind of incompatibility between PBCC and my ATI driver (and I could be wrong on that), I've not seen any other issues with my driver and any other software.
          In fact, I've got other software that asks for keyboard input from a graphics window, and there's no problem at all.
          And I certainly couldn't ask everyone that has an ATI card to change their hardware so that any program I might create will work on their machine. That would be unreasonable.

          I've tried different driver versions, same result. And others with different model ATI video cards have the same issue. They probably have different drivers too. Right now I'm using the latest ATI driver.

          If my video card can work so flawlessly with all other software that I've tried, I don't see why it can't work without issue with PBCC.
          In addition to that, if PBCC can work with nVidia and Intel graphics, I don't see why it can't work just as well with ATI.

          But the bottom line at this point is, I don't really know WHAT the problem is. Thus the request for some official input.

            You DID send an email request for said official comment to [email protected], right?

              If you make a compiled EXE available (I haven't the 4.x version of PB/CC) I will be happy to try on my machine too (iMac, with ATI video card).

              Bye!

                Ah, my bad. I apologize. I'll get on that. Thanks for the heads up.

                  POSITIVE UPDATE with PBCC 5.0

                  Well, I just got my version of PB/CC 5.0, and reran this same test code, and it now works FLAWLESSLY!!! Thank you PowerBASIC.

                  In addition to that, there is now the GRAPHIC INKEY$ command, meaning there's no longer any need to even switch focus to the console window to get keyboard input. Quite the bonus!!!!


                  Again, thank you very much.
