Windows 7: Open GL Graphics problem

13 Dec 2019   #1

Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit
Open GL Graphics problem

I have just replaced my Radeon VX5450 graphics card with an Nvidea GTX 1060 card. The old card had no problems but i wanted to upgrade the graphics. I now get an error message saying that I need Open GL3.1 or higher. I have updated the card to the latest drivers but still get the same message. Surely the new card should work without another set of drivers?

Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit

I suggest downloading/installing it from here-

Opengl32.dll is missing? Download it for Windows 7, 8, 10, Xp, Vista, 32 or 64 bit -

Does that help?

OpenGL errors arise when the graphics card drivers that correspond with a specific OpenGL version are not installed on a device.
