This is kind of a unique error.

It typically results from running QuickBooks Point of Sale 2013 on Windows 8, in a Virtualbox virtual machine.

This is actually a known issue in Virtualbox, when you have selected 3d acceleration on the virtual machine settings.

The way to resolve this is to make sure the virtual machine is powered down. Edit the settings.

On the left, choose Display, and remove the check mark from the 3D acceleration box.

Once this is saved, you can launch the Windows 8 virtual machine, launch QuickBooks Point of Sale 2013, and it will run without the error.
