View Full Version : JOGL not finding NVIDIA driver

10-29-2012, 05:25 AM
Hello. I am seeking help with a problem enabling WGL_ARB_pbuffer. My development system works fine. But on my production web server I get

!!! Pre-caching extension availability
!!! Available extensions: GL_WIN_swap_hint GL_EXT_bgra GL_EXT_paletted_texture
!!! GL vendor: Microsoft Corporation
!!! Available: GL_WIN_swap_hint
!!! Available: GL_EXT_bgra
!!! Available: GL_EXT_paletted_texture
!!! Added GL_VERSION_1_1 to known extensions
!!! Added GL_VERSION_1_0 to known extensions
http-80-2: !!! Destroyed OpenGL context 0x10000
WindowsGLDrawableFactory.canCreateGLPbuffer() = false

I am developing a web application using JOGL (Java OGL binding) and tomcat.

Assuming the problem was due to the use of a low budget on-board graphics, I asked the web hosting company to install a real graphics card. They gave me an NVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE/7200GS. The new device appears in device manager and Windows indicates the driver is up-to-date. But b/c the debug output says "GL vendor: Microsoft Corporation" I suppose OGL is not finding the NVIDIA driver? Maybe adding the graphics card was not the solution? Maybe I'm way off base somehow?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
