Open GL for windows 7

    Întrebare

  • My video card is recognized by 7 but won't use open gl. My video card is a workstation graphics card - ATI FireGL V7300. Unfortunately, ATI doesn't have an updated driver for this card yet and the problem with utilizing open gl is really screwing me. Hopefully someone here can help.

    Hi

    There is not much we can do here to resolve this problem.

    All of the drivers are developed by the hardware manufacturer. If the manufacturer has not released the Windows 7 drivers yet, you will simply need to wait until they do.

    One of the downsides to testing a beta product is waiting for support from third party IHVs. Although the beta support for Windows 7 has been good, some manufacturers will wait until the final version is available before providing drivers for some of their products.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for testing Windows 7

  • Mr. Vernon,

    Yeah, Unfortunately, I now have the full version of Windows 7 Ultimate and still no OpenGL support for my ATI FireGL V7300. After speaking with some folks at ATI, they responded that there were no plans in place to produce a driver for this line of video cards and, yet, they did make drivers for every other older card! Help me convince them
    that they are WRONG! They're screwing over customers because they're too lazy to code a fresh driver or recode an older one. Is there any way Microsoft would be kind enough to write one that will use Open GL since they won't? I know that would make me a Microsoft fan till the day I die and would probably do the same for many other customers.

    Thanks

    Alex

  • I use the ATI Firemv 2250 and I'm having the exact same issue. I need OpenGL but from what I hear ATI Is going to screw us over and not make windows 7 drivers. Would a possibility of Microsoft making a driver with OpenGL be possible? This really disgusts me considering I just bought this card not too long ago for 150 dollars.
