Virtual Earth 3D will not load

  1. I have just downloaded Microsoft Virtual Earth, but when I start this software a brief error displays saying that the 3D was unable to load, (need updated driver). Earth works fine, I can move around without a problem. Can anyone tell me where and how to download a hopefully free updated driver for 3D viewing?

    3Dfx Voodoo Banshee 1.00.04 is what I am running.

    Thank You,

    Not sure what the hardware requirements are. But are you sure PII is powerful enough? Another alternative for you may be Google Earth. Although it may require more up to date hardware as well.
