Whenever I start my Xsi 4.0 I get this error message in the left hand bottom of my screen interface(the most bottom gray bar) where all the text for calculations, loading, render % go to. I get this message " WARN : Missing Open GL extension(ARB_shadow)_realtime shadow...." I was wondering if you know what it is, I've always just ignored it but it could maybe be linked to the recent crashes whenever I render region something. That could maybe even explain why the diffusion shader only works for a short period of time and then Xsi just crashes. Another thing i'd like to mention is during the time I just installed the software. Towards the end of the insallation I got this message, " Errors encountered while initializing the currently configured audio hw(continuing in null hw mode) please verify your hw installation." Once again i just ignored it and just worked with Xsi just as usual.
I'm hoping you know all this and could give me a solution otherwise. Sorry for the barrage of questions, I'm just a student in need of some troubleshooting experience and nearing graduation, which means I need my software to work ASAP. Thanks a lot for your time.
