Hi - I just installed ArcGIS Earth 1.5 and an issue I always had is unfortunately still there:
ArcGIS Earth will only run on the on-board Intel HD graphics card - not on the AMD FirePro M4100 FireGL V
A shame - since the FireGL would have much more graphics power.

I wonder: Has anyone ever found a solution for that? Others have reported similar (here -  and no - it can not be solved by installing another AMD driver.
During beta of Earth 1.x this was discussed (with support), tested and not succesfull and has been the issue since. Drivers are as recent as supported and i.e. ArcGIS Pro runs smoothly on the AMD card - very nice!.

Keep in mind though that the same issue arises with Drone2Map - so things point to "Runtime" as the cause. Here it is even worse, since Drone2Map would make use of the GPL for processing - and cant that way.

But since there are many individual settings for AMD graphics cards in the control center, my hope remains that this can be solved by adjusting these settings on an application level. Any ideas? Successes?
