When I attempt to open Chief Architect, I receive one of the following error messages:

How do I resolve this?


These error messages typically occur when your system is having trouble properly detecting your ATI/AMD graphics card.

In most instances, this can be resolved by updating or reinstalling the ATI/AMD driver associated with your graphics card. To update your ATI/AMD graphics card driver, please see the following AMD website:

Note: For further assistance on updating your graphics card driver, please contact AMD Support .

Once the graphics card driver has been updated or reinstalled, reboot your system.

You should now be able to launch the Chief Architect program successfully.
