RTX2060 + Thea Render 1.5.09 ... presto-x64.cuda.dll doesn't recognise it.

Smalltalk and interesting stuff about everything else.

I've got a new card for Cyberpunk 2077, raytraced reflections..... woooo!

But was aghast that my ancient and old Thea 1.5.09 didn't even try to use the CUDA cores of the card, because it was too new!

Instead of a zippy real-time Presto(MC) preview I got a CPU only render.... -cries-

I know there's a new Altair Studio and I've used it, and it sees the RTX2060..... I was hoping I could find the Presto DLL's in there, but it's all Java packages. -sniffle-

I just love the old "Thea Render" it has a place in my heart like no other program. It would be great to get my new card working in the preview with it.

Does anyone know of a crazy and insane change I could do?

Nope there's no backwards fix, the whole dll structure is totally different, and as far as I know they aren't touching V1.5 anymore, which is a shame, I know a few people that have no option but to stick with Studio
