The other day I was trying to install Element 3D v2.2. I ran the installer it finished successfully and when I went into AE and dropped the plugin on a solid just to test it I got his error.
I have tried:
Updating my Graphcis Drivers
Windows 10 Pro
2x Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
Any idea on how to fix this?
This bug could be fixed by updating the graphics card driver (from nvidia). Also make sure to run the latest version of Element 3D.
Delete the old installation and make a clean, new installation of the plug-in. That worked pretty well for me.
