Quill 3d won,t run

I get a memory access violation message when trying to run Quil. This occurs with the new demo as well as the original program. I am running Windows xp with athlone 64. Since there isn.t much support for this software maybe someone out there has solved the problem?

Have you loaded the 1.52 update?

Try a Re-install, I have not had that problem, and I have had it running on two machines.
Maybe someone out there has the solution if re-install don't work.

I've had this error pop up occasionally as well. I think it has something to do with Windows XP SP2 being installed (it was working fine before hand).

Try going to System Properties>Advanced>Performance Settings>Data Execution Prevention and add the Quill executable to the DEP exception list.

I contacted the Quill support people. They think it may be the graphics drivers of the 6xxx type. I think service pack 2 is more likely the cause. All my other programs work fine, but it,s a good idea to check oit the demos before buying software these days.

Did you try this:

Quill3D 2003 David Bird Version 1.52

Please Delete the file called kDef that is located in the sys folder of Quill3D. This file will be recreated on startup of Quill3D. Also remove the "quill3d_init.ini" file. Make a note of any changes that you have made.

Ok thanks

Gord(Posted 2005) [#10]
I got rid of kdef and now get a Can,t find driver error message when trying to run Quill.I could not find the Quill3d_init.ini file.

Aoneweb(Posted 2005) [#11]
Funny, I got rid of both files and all is well, I have had it running on a Nvidia and Radeon card, no probs.
The quill3d_init file is in the main dirctory.

Thanks for the advice. Quill runs now. I downloaded the no cd update and fixed the dep problem and removed the 2 files mentioned above. It seems Quill had stopped reading the cd when i ran the program.Now it does not need the cd to be present.

There's a no cd update? I've wanted one of those so bad, the CD thing is irritating me to no ends...

Anyone got a link?
