Sorry for my ignorance, but what exactly is “Simple Bright Display Mode” ? Is it a custom display mode in Rhino? If so, can you export the mode and send it to me… If not, then what is it exactly and how do I use/get it?
In any case, the message you’re getting is coming from NVidia’s display drivers and is usually caused by an unsupported operation by the host application (i.e. Rhino). The text in the message is misleading, but I just think it’s NVidia’s way to pass blame on something that’s crashing in their drivers.
I have a Quadro FX 1700 here, so I’d like more information about your exact system configuration and OS, so that I can try to replicate the problem.
