OpenGL 1.4 in XP

How do I get GLUT, HW Acceleration and OpenGL1.4 all working happily on Windows XP if XP only ships with OpenGL 1.1? I have installed the latest NVidia Drivers, but it still is only 1.1!


It’s explained in the FAQ :

For modern functionality, I need more than OpenGL 1.1. How do I determine what version and extensions are supported by a graphics card?

The latest version of the OpenGL headers and libraries available from Microsoft correspond to version 1.1. But graphics card vendors support the latest versions of OpenGL and extensions in their drivers. As a developer you can detect and load these using the OpenGL Extension mechanism.
