Fix Vulan 10 crash with the NVIDIA Control Panel

Ever since Vulcan 10 came out I've been hearing a lot of complaints about the software crashing. The word from the vendor seems to be that the problem was with the graphics card or the graphics driver. I can understand how they would want to blame the third party graphics provider but the crash complaints seem to come from people with very high end graphics cards. Not exactly the high performance results they were looking for.

I finally started encountering this problem myself while working with specific triangulations. The problem was happening with a specific, mid-size triangulation. I wasn't having any problems loading the file but when I would remove the triangulation Vulcan would crash. When Vulcan support couldn't reproduce my problem I started looking at my system setup. It turns out that my problem was with the graphics driver, just not in the way that Vulcan made it sound.

Here's how I fixed the issue:
  1. Right click on the desktop and select 'NVIDIA Control Panel'
  2. Select 'Manage 3D Settings'
  3. In the drop-down box for 'Preferred graphics processor:' select 'High-performance NVIDIA processor'
  4. Click on 'OK' in the bottom right of the panel

That's it. Everything seems to be fine now.

The default for the preferred graphics processor was 'Auto-select.' This seems to toggle between the integrated graphics and the graphics card to save power. I think that Vulcan 10 doesn't interact very well with the 'Auto-select' option and this miscommunication was what was causing the crash.

That's what I did to fix the problem. I'd love to hear if this fixed your problem.
