  • I like playing cd games on my pc. The games say that they are compatible to my computer, a few games won't play and inform me that I need "Open GL2.0 or higher. I don't know what this is so I need a little help. Please!

  • Open Graphics Library (OpenGL) is a cross-language, cross-platform application programming interface (API) for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics. The API is typically used to interact with a graphics processing unit (GPU), to achieve hardware-accelerated rendering.

    OpenGL - Wikipedia

    Open Device Manager > Locate Display adapter > Expand to find out which graphic card is there > Visit the website of the graphic card manufacturer to download and install the latest driver which is compatible with your graphic card and OS.

  • Even though Win 7 runs DirectX 11,download DirectX 10 redistribute.Download,create a new folder,extract the download to new,open folder,scroll to bottom,run the .exe file,Win 7 does the rest.Also,once thru,in run or cmd,type: DXDIAG run the DirectX test.

  • There may be two main reason that will result in the error pop up:

    1.Your graphics processor is too old to support OpenGL 2.0

    Most fairly modern graphics cards support OpenGL 2.0 which was released in 2004. If your GPU is much older than that, it may not support OpenGL 2.0 which is a minimum requirement to run Enplug. You can determine what OpenGL version your device supports by looking up the specifications of your GPU on it's manufacturer's website. If your GPU does not support at least OpenGL 2.0, you will need to run Enplug on a different device or upgrade/add a discrete graphics card to your system which does support OpenGL 2.0.

    2.Your device does not have the latest manufacturer supplied graphics drivers installed

    You can download these from the driver support page for your PC manufacturer, or the manufacturer page for your GPU. • Intel GPU driver download: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html • NVIDIA GPU driver download: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx • AMD/ATI GPU driver download: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
