PB Toolkit was installed by Flash CS4 installer on my Acer XP
SP2 laptop. I've never had any previous PB Toolkint installation.
On starting PB Toolkit I get two standard Microsoft error popups:
sniffer_gpu.exe has encountered a problem, and
pixel_bender_toolkit.exe has encountered a problem.
Sorry to understand you are having difficulties running the
Pixel Bender Toolkit. From the description, my first suggestion
would be to make certain the driver for your video card is properly
installed and up to date.
Please check the driver, update it if necessary, and let us

I have two monitors: the laptop's own, and a Samsung
The video card is Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family.
"Update driver" in Device Manager reported it could find no
better driver that what I have installed.
After rebooting, however, Pixel Bender Toolkit did start up!
It reported an error checking my video card, and suggested
the CPU mode setting in advanced preferences.
I guess I forgot the first law of PC troubleshooting: reboot
