Check for OpenGL compatibility

Checking which graphics card is installed on your computer and checking whether it is compatible.

  • Click on 'Start ->Run' in the Taskbar. (XP/Vista/7/8 users, hit the "Windows" key and "R" at the same time.)
  • Type 'dxdiag'. (This assumes you have DirectX installed)
  • Hit Okay (Or Yes)
  • Go to Display
  • All system video card statistics will be shown.
  • The kind of video card you have is under Name or Chip Type.

If your MANUFACTURER is 'blank' and the Driver name is VGA.DLL

This is the reason that OpenGL is not working. There are no drivers installed for your graphics card and Windows is using some very old drivers just so Windows can display something. It is worth speaking to the manufacturer of your computer for advice on how to update these to the correct drivers. If you don't have contact with the manufacturer of your PC then a great program called Belarc Advisor will tell you what is inside your computer, download here>http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

If your MANUFACTURER is INTEL

If your MANUFACTURER is NVIDIA

If your MANUFACTURER is ATI

They are up-to date, what next??

If your drivers are up to date and you still get this error, you can use Realtechvr Glview (http://www.realtech-vr.com/glview/download.html) to see if your system supports OpenGL 1.3.
