OVITO crashing while loading LAMMPS dump file
« on: November 26, 2018, 05:24:30 PM »
Hi,
I am using Ovito 2.9.0 (OpenGL 3.1) in Windows 10 and when I try to load a LAMMPS dump file, the program crashes. The dump file loads perfectly with a different computer running the same version of Ovito. I tried using the 'Alternative file selection dialogue' but was of no use. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the help

Hi,
I would like to ask you to also try the current development build of Ovito 3.0.0-dev to see if it shows the same problem. If yes, please select 'OpenGL Information' from the Help menu of Ovito. Post the information displayed by the dialog box here.
Thanks.

Hi Abu,

Thanks for posting the system info. I checked my notes and saw that I had received reports from two other users before, who encountered the same problem and who had the same graphics driver on their systems (Intel graphics driver build 9.17.10.4459 for Windows). This suggests that there exists some incompatibility between this driver and Ovito, but I am not sure what it is. To further diagnose the problem (and find a workaround), I will need a test machine with the same kind of graphics hardware and driver configuration. We'll try to find one in our department, maybe we are lucky.
