Your video card appears to be missing one or more features required to run Call of Duty.

You should install the latest drivers for your video card, being sure to uninstall the old drivers first. If you already have the latest drivers, you should completely uninstall the drivers and then reinstall them. This fixes most problems. If the game still doesn’t work, it may be that your video card does not have the minimum features required. Please check the readme for more information, including a list of supported video cards.


i’m using Nvidia GeForce 64mb graphic card and also tried reinstalling the driver and the OPENGL but it still doesnt work - wat is wrong?


Apperently you installed DirectGL thats a third party tool to emulate OpenGL on top on DirectX.

This emulation lacks the features required to play the game (as it is stated in the error message you posted).

To sum it all up:

There is no need to “install” OpenGL, it comes with Windows, all you need are drivers that “support” OpenGL. The Nvidia drivers do.

Unfortunatly I think you broke your OpenGL by doing only-god-knows-what.

i had only installed the openGL when the game didn’t load up from the very beginning.

what should i do now? haaaalp!

The question would be:

What have you done to your system to brake OpenGL?
