Graphics Compatibility Tip...

CrystalMaker X works best if your Mac has a dedicated graphics card. Macs using Intel Integrated Graphics (e.g., MacBook and lower-spec MacBook Pro models) may not fully support the latest OpenGL 4.2 feature set.

If you do experience any issues, try turning off the Use Latest Graphics checkbox in the Graphics pane of the Preferences Panel (CrystalMaker > Preferences). This will revert to OpenGL 3.2, which should provide superb output, albeit slightly slower than OpenGL 4.2.

CrystalMaker X for Windows

Windows 10 Logo 64-bit

Requires a 64-bit PC with an OpenGL 3.2-capable graphics card (with latest drivers installed), running Windows 7, 8 or 10 and .NET Framework 4.6 or later.

Before You Install...
  1. Please update your graphics drivers before installing CrystalMaker X for the first time, otherwise you may experience display issues.

    Because graphics cards are supplied by third parties, you cannot rely on the Windows Software Update mechanism to do this - or your control panel. Instead, you should visit the graphics card manufacturer's website to download the latest drivers for your machine.

    CrystalMaker X provides workstation-class performance through its highly-optimized multi-core design and advanced OpenGL support. As such, it is imperative that graphics drivers are kept fully up-to-date (particularly if your machine's operating system has been updated).

    The vast majority of technical issues reported to us turn out to be related to bugs in graphics card drivers - and updating the driver software invariably fixes these as if by magic.

  2. By default, the software is installed for the active user only. They will be prompted to enter an Admin password during the installation process.

    Unless you are going to be using the software as the Admin User, do not log in as the Admin User to install the software; simply log in to your usual user account, and install the software for yourself.

    If you have a Site Licence and wish to deploy the software via a command script, please contact us directly.
