I am having a problem determining if there is
there is another GL app running on my PC that uses the hardware accelerated ICD. When I run two apps which both use an accelerated ICD the second one activated will stop responding if it uses the same
driver for choosepixelformat as the first. I assume this is because only one app can use the graphics accelerator at once.
I would like to be able to determine before initializing my GL app if some other program is using the graphics accelerator, that way I can run in software mode.
In directX you simply query thru com for the
device, if someone else is using it, it is not an available choice and you use software.
How do I do this in GL??
