I recently switched motherboards. My old motherboard apparently did have OpenGL because a program I requently run requires it, and that program used to work. However, with my new motherboard, this program comes up witht he error “Error: Cannot initialize OpenGL extensions.” After snooping around, I downloaded OpenGL.
My computer has a ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series video driver, and I am assuming that this is somehow conflicting with OpenGL. I open up my display settings, and switch from “Direct 3D” to “OpenGL.” I apply the change and hit okay, and it all seems to work out okay. I try running my program, but it comes up with the same error. So I go back to display settings, and low and behold, it switched itself back to Direct3D.
So I came to ehre to see if anybody could help me understand what was going wrong and what I need to do. Any help would be appreciated, thanks very much.
