Okay so im trying to reinstall Firestorm, I downloaded 5.0.11

I chose the " For SL only 32bit: DOWNLOAD " version.

and i did what this told me to do: http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_clearing_settings

and its still saying https://prnt.sc/jbrm7e

(not to mention the 5.0.11 intel fix error message comes up as "Update Graphics Card"

when i put in the 5.0.7 intel fix it says the error message I screenshotted above

( https://prnt.sc/jbrm7e )

somebody PLEASE help, I deleted the User_settings folder all together and it comes back when i try to launch firestorm, and i deleted all the " settings_per_account.xml  " and still nothing changes.

I feel for you!  I just went thru this on a new system. But I didn’t have trouble with user settings. The Intel ‘fix’ is only for systems with an Intel processor w/embedded graphics card. 

Worse now I’m stuck on my cell and can’t explain much to help you. Do you have an Intel processor? 

Then the user settings, did you backup prior to installing update? In general FS will create setting files, as/from defaults, if not found on initial startup. FS should start and run with defaults... only trouble is that you’ll need to go thru preferences and reset all as you like them.

(When it finally starts)

That bears the question: did it ever run properly for you? Did any other viewer ever work properly?

Secondary question: what's your hardware? A 32bit viewer and the Intel fix cue strongly suggest that the machine itself is old and rather limited.

I have a new system, 64 bit i7 (with embedded graphics).... That's a problem with 64bit FS as I understand now. I have it up and running tho I had to install the 32bit version (apply it's fix/patch) to get there.

Seems Intel isn't providing upgraded 64bit graphics drivers. (there's a silly Hot-Key feature built into it that seems to cause problems... just a guess by the way it acts)  Of course another fix would to be to get a graphics card and disable the i7's.... but will need to upgrade the power supply to be certain all will be well.
