Could not set Pixel Format


Could not set Pixel Format error pops up when I try to open nTop. 


Applies to:

nTop 2.20


This error is occurring because your graphics card is not compliant with the latest OpenGL update.


Update your Graphics Card Driver

    • Updating your graphics card driver to the latest OpenGL driver will most likely resolve this issue. 

Restart the Computer

    • If updating the graphics card driver doesn't resolve the issue, Restart your computer and try running nTop again.

Upgrade your Graphics Card

    • If you aren't able to update your graphics card, you will have to upgrade it to run nTop. Make sure the new graphics card is within the required specifications to run the program. Check here for compatibility: nTop System and Licensing Requirements Guide
