Solution for OpenGL???

Recommended Posts

Is there a solution for this message when trying to open PE for the 1st time?  

"The Pixel Editor requires that your computer have an OpenGL video driver version 1.5 or higher.  The OpenGL driver on this computer is version 1.1"

Where do i find the video driver on my laptop? I'm running on Windows 10 if that matters.

Which version of the LOR software are you running? In the Pixel Editor, select Help > About from the menu. Please paste the result here. That will help diagnose the problem.

I had this problem when I was running Windows 10 on an older PC (with an embedded video chip).

Anyway, for my specific graphics chip set (I think from INTEL), the newer version of OpenGL did not work (no driver for it).

Therefore, I had to buy a cheap video card (plugged into the PCI bus) which could handle the updated OpenGL driver.

Yeah I had this happen also with an old laptop not having an updated OpenGL driver..  I ended up buying a new laptop after trying to upgrade my OpenGl driver and gave up.  Plus it was a good excuse for the wife as she gave me the okay to buy the new laptop.

According to this Youtube video, the Windows 7 drivers on the Intel website for your chipset work on Windows 10.

The download link given in the comments for the video is:

The author of the video seems to be running a computer similar to yours. I make no guarantees - it's not my video, but it might save you from buying a new computer.

This is apparently a problem when you are docked to a DisplayLink device. Try connecting you laptop directly to the monitor.

There is a recent discussion here:
