View Full Version : Getting latest OpenGL

07-25-2014, 11:42 PM
Not sure where to post this, so my apologies if this is in the wrong location.

I am trying to practice with Corona SDK and the simulator needs OpenGL 2.1 and this computer has 1.5.

I went to download.com and saw OpenGL listed however MOST of the comments complained that the release there was NOT 2.0 like it said.

So, I don't know how to get version of OpenGL for my Windows XP that is AT LEAST OpenGL 2.1.

I tried looking on this site but didn't see the right download.

Could someone please help me?

OpenGL is not software. It is implemented by your graphics card and the drivers for your graphics card.
Either your card supports OpenGL 2.1 or it does not. If it doesnt there is nothing you can do except to upgrade your hardware.

However, it might also be that your drivers are outdated. Try downloading the latest drivers for your graphics card and perhaps they will support OpenGL 2.1 by now. If they dont there is nothing you can do.

Thank you! I looked up how to upgrade my graphics card driver and unfortunately there was no update.

Oh well. I appreciate your time and patience to help such a newbie like me.

Thank you!
