OpenGL on Win2003Server?

Hi there! I’ve heard of several problems when running OpenGL apps on Win 2003 Server systems. Can someone confirm that? Or are there no more or less problems than running OpenGL apps on Win2k or WinXP systems?

OpenGL apps runs correctly (on Win2k)
and I don’t think there’s bugs with Xp system

OpenGL hardware acceleration is unavailable when you run 32-bit programs in Windows on Windows 64 on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003, 64-Bit Edition, or Microsoft Windows Server 2003, 64-Bit Datacenter Edition.

To determine whether you can use OpenGL hardware acceleration, use the DescribePixelFormat function. Examine the pixelformatdescriptor data structure that the function returns. If the PFD_GENERIC_ACCELERATED flag is clear and if the PFD_GENERIC_FORMAT flag is set, Windows on Windows 64 will use software emulation to emulate hardware acceleration.
