- The status of your graphics card has changed in the database, e.g., the Status has changed from Supported to Certified.
- Autodesk or the graphics hardware vendor has resolved issues with your graphics hardware.
NOTE: You must have administrative privileges and have the user account controls (UAC) disabled on your Microsoft® Windows® operating system to complete the update process.
