View Full Version : Maya Startup Failed Please Help

10 October 2004, 12:09 AM
I have been using Maya(4.5) for about two years now and never had a problem.

But the other day when I came to start the program an error message appeared and stopped Maya loading. Considering the day before Maya was working great, it is a real puzzle to me as to what has happened to cause this problem.

The error message that appears is:-

wgl CreateContext failed, Error Code = 0

Trying to solve the problem I had sent an email off to Alias so hopefully they will get back to me quickly cause I need it back asap.

The only thing that has changed recently in my computer has been a graphic card upgrade from a matrox G400 to a quadro FX1000 but that was two weeks ago and maya has been running the best it ever has since so I can't see that this is the problem.

Can any of the lovely cgtalk users help?

ive gotten this same error from other opengl games and apps before, the "wgl CreateContext failed", one time i just had to change the desktop res, and another time i updated my nvidia drivers and it went away, are you using the latest quadro driver? if you are, maybe try reverting to an older one. --hope it helps
