    whilst my card is different i too was experiencing regular Application crashes a while ago.

    I'm running an NVIDIA Quadro K5100M, after tinkering around with the settings i did the following;

    Go to Home > Options > 3D View > Advanced > Driver and make sure the 3D View Mode is set to;
    1. Planning Mode (OpenGL)
    2. Advanced Planning Mode (OpenGL2)
    Close Synchro Pro

    Now go to your NVIDIA Control Panel > 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings 
    1. Select a program to customise:
    Click Add and navigate to your Synchro Pro Application (Synchro.exe), mine was located here: C:\Program Files\Synchro Ltd\Synchro\Client

    2. Select the preferred graphics processor for this program
    Change the drop down to "High-performance NVIDIA processor"

    3. Specify the settings for this program
    The only thing i changed in here, was to make sure the "OpenGL Rendering GPU" was set to Quadro K5100M and not Auto-Select (Global Settings)


    Since doing this, I've yet to have an Application crash, I hope it helps.

    Best Regards
