[IDV #FVM-820950]: IDV cannot run: unable to create graphics configuration



Jonathan,

The standard Unidata response in this case would be to serve the data through a
THREDDS or RAMADDA server and access it from the IDV on your desktop/laptop.

Another suggestion:

Make sure your graphics driver is up-to-date on your client machine.

I am also curious to know if the IDV will run at all on your client machine.


Best,

Unidata IDV Support
