Hello,

I have Intel core i5-4200u CPU @1.60 Hz 2.30 GHz
4.00 GB Ram memory
64bit Op. sistem
Nvidia GEFORCE 740m

I installed it, but when i try to run the program it shows me that Shader model 3 was not detected to work on this graphics card...

What is the problem, and is there a way to fix this?

The PC is well below minimum specifications for using Lumion.

Refer further:

2.  Lumion Web Site: Specifications

3.  Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks.

If you want to use Lumion on a laptop smoothly.. you will need a top of the line laptop like the new Asus ROG JH or an Alienware 17 custom build.

Your laptop graphics card will need to be at least a 870m or 880m.. check the passmark for these graphics cards.. To make complicated scenes in lumion your graphics card must have at least 5000 points.. i believe the 880m graphics cards is the closest to 5000 points you will find on a laptop right now.

Also, since lumion does not make use of dual graphics cards.. its best to get as much VRAM on one powerful graphics card instead of getting two 3 gig VRAm.. get 1 graphics card with at least 4 gigs of VRAM, Lumion team recommends 6 gigs of VRAM.. The 870m graphics cards can go up to 6gigs VRAM.

hope this helps.
