I have just installed PowerVT 2 and i am getting this error "Illegal function call" This is the same exact computer it was installed on. I just needed to redo it. I am having this problem elsewhere also. Doesn't anyone know why. My system setup is as follows:

Win98 SE
256 Colors
800 X 600 Res
Pentium III

thank you for your time.

What does "redo it" mean? What else has changed on this machine? Was the app re-installed using the installation disk?

I too have tried to install PowerVT onto a dell lattitude laptop running XP, but get the same error message when I try to launch PowerVT. I have tried to run the program under the XP compatability tool, but that too does not fix the problem.

Unfortunately, version PowerVT version 2 is no longer updated. I would suggest trying our current version (3), and if the problem still exists, we will look into the problem.

We use PowerVT 2.0. When we were upgrading to new machines we were getting an "Illegal function Call" message after install. It did not matter if it was Windows 9x or 2000. The solution that worked for us was to go into the properties for the video adapter and lower the hardware acceleration found in the troubleshooting tab. Hope this helps.

Lower your hardware acceleration by 1. (in the advanced video settings, card settings).
This trick work every time!!!
