I at first installed it on a Windows XP, but it didn't work, so I left it until I upgraded to Windows 7, when I installed it.
Try updating the graphics driver, and also Direct X.
I'm not too hopeful about these working though.
This life isn't the end. We will meet again.

- Intel HD3000 (notebook - i7 sandy bridge) - after a while, artifacts start to show up, stuff missing from the GUI etc... LDD sometimes crashes afterwards.
- Intel HD4000 (desktop - i7 ivy bridge) - same as above
- Ati Radeon HD3870 (desktop) - works fine
- Ati Radeon HD7870 (desktop) - works fine
- Geforce GT555M (notebook) - works fine
I tried to turn off the advanced graphics on the in proc graphics (Intel HD) on notebook and desktop, which actually makes things work (no crashes, no "lost items").
My conclusion (from the couple of possibilities that i had the oportunity to test at home) is, that onboard (or in proc) graphics just don't cut it, when it comes to advanced shading models... Either buy a graphics card (no matter which, even a 20€ 4+ yrs old graphics card like 3870, is better then the built in graphics card in a 250-300€ processor), or use LDD without the shaders.
