graphices card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 630m with 2GD dedicated VRAM
plz help me how to fix this problem
Is it possible they have a newer build? PTC's latest build they released is M100 but I don't know if they release the student version of the same build at the same time.
locate config.pro file in Creo installation, open it in Wordpad and add following option at the end. Then test Creo.
config.pro you edited is not the right one.
Please edit this file C:\Program Files\Creo 3.0\M070\Common Files\text\config.pro
Access denied error message means that you do not have Administrator rights and therefore you cannot save the file.
> launch Wordpad as Administrator
> open C:\Program Files\Creo 3.0\M070\Common Files\text\config.pro
> edit config.pro and save it
OR you can add -g:win32_gdi in shortcut of Creo as:
Select Creo Shortcut > Right Click > Properties > Place cursor in target > Move cursor to end > Add a space followed by -g:win32_gdi. (e.g. "C:\Program files\Creo 3.0\Parametric\bin\parametric.exe" -g:win32_gdi)
