Check for required graphics support

To get hardware accelerated performance from .NET Framework 3.5 and Expression Blend, make sure you have a recent graphics driver installed. Check your display adapter for the following settings:

  1. Click Display in Control Panel.

  2. Click the Settings tab and then under Color quality, make sure Highest (32 bit) is selected.

  3. Next, click the Advanced button, and then on the Adapter tab, click the Properties button.

  4. Click the Driver tab and look next to the Driver Date to see if the date is more recent than 11/1/2004. If it is not, then video and hardware acceleration will not work properly on your system unless you upgrade your video drivers.

  1. Under Appearance and Personalization in Control Panel, click Adjust screen resolution.

  2. Under Colors, make sure Highest (32 bit) is selected.

  3. Next, click the Advanced Settings button, and then on the Adapter tab, click the Properties button.

  4. Click the Driver tab and look next to the Driver Date to see if the date is more recent than 11/1/2004. If it is not, then video and hardware acceleration will not work properly on your system unless you upgrade your video drivers.
