How much memory does your FX 4500 have on it? Less than 1 gig?
Less than 1 gig on board and Lumion will not do what you want it to.
Why fight it........Can't squeeze water from a rock.
I use the much cheaper GeForce 460.
Got rid of all my Quadros as they are no longer that special in my eyes at this point in time of the hardware race and they also would not work with Lumion.
I am able to run all the programs you mentioned and more on an older 32-bit XP machine with only 2 gigs of on-board RAM with the GeForce 460 graphics card.
I have the bottom of the hardware barrel for Lumion.
And it works lovely with the right card.
Lumion recommends - NVidia 260GTX / ATI 5850 or faster.
Your Quadro simply might not cut it. It is not a recommended card. Why should it work?
Has nothing to do with the software.
If you get a card they recommend to run their software it simply will work for you.
If you bought a new Volkswagen Beetle from the manufacturer and put 22" Rims on it then had problems with the wheel well clearance would you take it back to the dealership and tell them they built the wheel wells wrong, even though they recommend using a specified tire size? - putting giant tires on this little car is not recommended therefore they would not help you out (without charging you even more for addressing a specific problem for a specific customer.)
Hope this helps a little
