solution, no...explanation, yes: integrated graphics chipsets (i.e. Intel HD, common in laptops, particularly low-end ones) are susceptible to this problem. Use a computer with a dedicated graphics card (i.e Radeon or GeForce)...the problem disappears.

I just installed Maxwell 1.5 on a freshly installed Win7 x64 laptop
(all drivers installed, Windows Update is current, and the Helios LaserDAC is detected just fine)
and when I go to turn on the laser, I get an error:
"Cannot create DirectX/OpenGL interop"
Anyone know how to fix this?
Am I missing a set of OpenGL components or something?
I tried installing v.1.22, and it does not throw this error, but 1.22 also doesn't recognize my Helios LaserDAC, so I can't use it.
I appreciate any help anyone can offer.
Thanks! Awesome program!
