OpenGL not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    A program that uses OpenGL will NOT render if the "Aero" theme is DISABLED ("classic" is used), but WILL render if the "Aero" theme is enabled.

    I don't want to use Aero engine. How do I get OpenGL to render without having Aero turned on?

  • Hi,

    OpenGL is related to software development. I would like to suggest you submit a new question to MSDN forum. In this way, your issue can be fixed effectively.

    I find it hard to understand why an end-user problem in interaction between a graphics API library and Windows OS is a software development issue...

    Still no replies on MSDN.

    This is a really bad problem. I am forced to use AERO, but can't because

    of performance issues (I don't have a gamers graphics card)

  • I get what you're saying, but Vista and up still have the options for adjusting "your computer for best performance", it also has non-AERO default themes built-in. We are also able to disable the "Theme" service. etc., etc. I didn't hack my way into disabling AERO, it is still a prominent feature, which happens to disable OpenGL. I see a big irregularity there.
