Windows 7: Lucidlogix Virtu - adding apps to list

Lucidlogix Virtu - adding apps to list

I recently built a system based on a MSI Z68-GD80 mobo + i7-2600k. Comes with Virtu which is supposed to automatically switch from Intel gfx to discrete gfx card when a game is fired up - has a white list of approved games and the ability to add your own game to the list.

Although I am not a gamer, I tried adding the exe for Cinema 4D to the list, but it didn't activate the Virtu process when I opened C4D.

So I was wondering - has any forum members sucessfully added any graphics apps to the Virtu list, or is it really only for 3D games and just gets triggered by DirectX etc.

BTW I would like to use both on-die and discrete gfx because my Black Gold HDTV card works great with Intel gfx, but pixelates with the HD5770 card.

I seemed to have solved my Lucid Virtu problem.

Since C4D runs OK on my HD 5770 card, but Black Gold HDTV didn't, I decided to ditch Virtu, stick with the discrete card and sort the pixelation TV issue.

The AMD gfx card drivers were only 1 month old, but a newer version was available. I uninstalled prev drivers and installed the new version but no improvement.

I was poking around with HW Info64 and noticed my gfx card was running at x8 not x16 presumably due to the BG3620 being in slot #2. I moved the HDTV card to slot #3 (which let the HD 5770 gfx card run at x16), rescanned Media Center and now I have HDTV with no pixelation.
