    ATi Radeon 9600

    Hello all , i have ATi Radeon 9600 video card and i am using Window XP operation system and i have problems with OpenGL.
    When i try to download from some sites and run setup i get this error:
    OpenGL currently only supports Windows 95/98
    And it tells me to register my E-mail to get notified when OpenGL supports Window XP.
    So can anyone please give me a link to download OpenGL for ATi and Windows XP?
    Thank You

    What app have you downloaded to give you such an error message? Anyway, you can get the latest ATI drivers from their homepage (http://www.amd.com/). If it's not the drivers you want but to develop OpenGL you only need to install the Compiler. OpenGL headers and libraries are already included. To get access to newer features I would recommend to use GLEW.

    glSetup is more than obsolete since 2002.

    If you want run application or play games that use OpenGL, no need for a compiler.

    Just download and install the ATI/AMD video drivers from here (select your OS, video card, etc) :

    ATi radeon on XP should have no problem. It is not a laptop ?
    What games did you try ?

    Try to download and run GLinfo from here :
    http://www.delphi3d.net/hardware/index.php

    And post here what this tool says for driver version, vendor, renderer, and OpenGL version.

    If you get "Microsoft" somewhere in vendor or renderer, it means your ATI drivers are not active...
    In that case, check you have the hardware acceleration slider set to "full" in "advanced" tab of display control panel.
    If you are in a multimonitor setup some extra care is needed to get hardware acceleration. Please give more details.

    At least some progress : no acceleration is probably caused by multiple monitors. I am not familiar with how ATI accelerates its multimonitor setup.

    Try with only one monitor, reboot. If it works with single monitor, at least you know where to search

    From the ATI site : "ATI Mobility FireGL T2 graphics processors are found in mobile workstations from HP and IBM"

    So you have a laptop right ?
    Serious Sam 1 is very nice in 32bits, I am not aware of any issue with 32bits...

    Please go download and install latest ATI video drivers (Catalyst) from link above.
    Then click the "advanced" button, and in one on the ATI red tabs you should be able to deactive the secondary monitor, and maybe tune the acceleration for dual screen setup.
    Something like that :
