shockwave 3D Xtra failed to initialize - Macromedia Director 3D

Hi, I was wondering if you guys have experienced anything like this with shockwave 11. Ive been testing my 3d shockwave app on various machines, and for some reason one of the machines(the oldest) gets "This application requires an Xtra(shockwave 3D) that either does not exist or failed to initialize properly....etc" It only happens with Shockwave 11 applications(not shockwave 10), it might be something wrong with that specific machine, im just enquiring here as well as investigating that avenue.

    Default shockwave 3D Xtra failed to initialize

    Hi,

    I was wondering if you guys have experienced anything like this with shockwave
    11. Ive been testing my 3d shockwave app on various machines, and for some
    reason one of the machines(the oldest) gets
    "This application requires an Xtra(shockwave 3D) that either does not exist or
    failed to initialize properly....etc"

    It only happens with Shockwave 11 applications(not shockwave 10), it might be
    something wrong with that specific machine, im just enquiring here as well as
    investigating that avenue.

    The machine has an old nVidia "GeForce2 GTS/ GeForce 2 PRO" graphics card, ive
    updated the drivers, to nVidia drivers vers 7.1.8.9. Also, ive checked the
    Shockwave 3D Xtra is installed on the machine. and done a clean wipe of
    shockwave and a reinstall of it.

    Anyone experienced anything similiar?

    Thanks in advance,
    Glen O'Neil

    Be sure that machine has an internet connection (maybe the SW player is trying
    to download an older Xtra to ensure the backward compatibility)
    Also read this article:
    http://www.adobedirectoronline.com/tutorials/tutorial_backwardCompatability.php
    And finally, set OpenGL as default 3D renderer and try again.

    cheers

    It was the OS hadnt been updated in years, so didnt even have SP1 for winXP on it. You make a few assumptions... and they bite you in the bum. Used Windows Update, and it runs fine.

    Thanks again
