Pretty much what the title says. This started only recently with the only change being a client update. I would think at first that this had something to do with a graphics driver being that the IGB AND previews weren't working. But I updated those to a couple of the recent ATI drivers and no dice.

Odd....this only happens when undocked. When docked everything works as it should.

Anyone else having this? Asked a few mates while in fleet and no one else was having it.

Vista 64
I7 860
4870 HD 512
Dual Client capped interval one at 60FPS

Checked with a new install of eve after a few CTD's when trying to use the IGB and then clicking on the over view. Cleaned out GPX drivers and tried eve on a second windows HDD I have for testing. Same 64 Vista, but nothing else on it. Same thing with IGB and previews not loading when undocked. CTD's have stopped after reinstalling eve. Figured it was about time after 3 patches on the same client.

UPDATE:

Looks like it was GPX drivers after all, but not the driver itself. It was more of the usual ATI/Nvidia "driver remover" doing a miserable job and leaving a heaping pile of dated driver files which will always eventually start conflicting.

Lesson of the last few days (curse you hurricane!):
Uninstall drivers before putting in new ones (I really should have not stopped this :/)
In safe-mode clean out anything left behind with Driver Sweeper or an equatable alternate.
Then install your new drivers in normal mode.
