    toontown rewritten won't work and blames opengl - help!

    display(error): The application requested harware acceleration, but your OpenGL
    :display(error): driver, GDI Generic, only supports software rendering.
    :display(error): You need to install a hardware-accelerated OpenGL driver, or,
    :display(error): if you actually *want* to use a software renderer, then
    :display(error): alter the hardware/software configuration in your Config.prc file.

    Basic stuff:

    1) What hardware have you? Specifically, what graphics hardware have you?
    2) Can you confirm that your drivers are (a) installed, and (b) up to date?

    not that complicated

    used to work - I didn't change anything - no longer works - from the error log:

    :display(error): The application requested harware acceleration, but your OpenGL
    :display(error): driver, GDI Generic, only supports software rendering.
    :display(error): You need to install a hardware-accelerated OpenGL driver, or,
    :display(error): if you actually *want* to use a software renderer, then
    :display(error): alter the hardware/software configuration in your Config.prc file.
    :display: Closing wglGraphicsWindow
    :display: wglGraphicsWindow wouldn't open; abandoning.
    :ToonBase(warning): Unable to open 'onscreen' window.
