Yes, I am building everything from svn using VS2008, with my own brewed
solution + project files for VS2008.

The apps crash even before the first line of main() is reached. The
message is purely a windows popup saying
It is even worse: I removed 1 GPU from my desktop (4 cores) so that I
test with only 1 GPU (back to basic). eqPly crashes then as well... This
is the same situation as on my laptop (2 cores) where I also use 1 GPU,
and there it runs fine in debug mode.
So it must be a driver issue then? I did install the most recent
version. How can I verify that?

What do you mean with 'isolate'? I don't want to combine rendering
results into 1 window or so.
First of all, I want to run the examples on my desktop, and go on from
there, and find out what's possible and what's not.

I read that indeed.
