"Error creating window handle".....


I am developing a small application in C# where I call a C
API. This application is to control some videocards from
DataPath. After installing the graphichs card and the
videoswitch cards from DataPath, I get the following error-
message when trying to edit a Form (design-mode):

"Error creating window handle".

Hence I'm not able to design the Form from VS.NET IDE.

Tha application compiles and runs fine.

Anyone have any ideas of what can be wrong ?

In each of those two cases, the PC's were connected to the same test server and *supposedly* had the same production build image on them. ...

Hi, I keep getting "Error creating window handle." now and then while running my C# application. I've tried to figure out why, but I'm stuck. What is the usual cause of this error ? The error occurs during a this.PointToScreen( newPos )-call, and "this" is referencing a instantiated Form class.... newPos is of class Point.

Hey guys, Here is whats happening. I have a StringBuilder, a TextBox, and a TabControl with one TabPage. On my main form, I created and displayed a fairly big maze. While the app is solving the maze, it appends each step it takes to the StringBuilder. When the maze is solved, the user can click a menu item to display the results.
