Issue:

SAMMI Core crashes with a dialog box error similar to:

Win32 function failed: HRESULT: 0x887a0005
Call: GR_D3D_Device->CreateBlendState at line 469 in file \StateManagerM.cpp

Solutions:

There was an issue with the graphics card driver.  Ensure the graphics card drivers and SAMMI Core are updated to the latest available versions.  The GPU on the system running SAMMI Core could also be overloaded.  This may require upgrading GPU hardware, lowering non-SAMMI application graphical settings, or running SAMMI Core on an alternate system.
