Win XP & Open GL

  1. Help needed...???

    I used to be running Windows ME. While I was still running on that system, I recieved "Return to Castle Wolfenstien." It ran beautifully, to say the least.

    However, I have since upgraded to Windows XP. Since that day, everytime I attempt to run the game, it tells me that It's not able to load the OpenGL subsystem.

    I've tried everything in an attempt to find the source of, and fix, the problem...but nothing has worked. Compatibility testing, moving around files, reinstalling...everything has come to the same conclusion.

    Any help would be great. Contact me if you can

    PS: Sorry if this message is under the wrong looked like the most logical choice to me.

    Welcome to TechSpot forums...

    What is your setup?
    What video card?
    Some system specs would be useful for trying to diagnose what is causing your problem...

    The default Gforce drivers that came with WinXP didn't have OpenGL, just D3D ( I wonder why ). Just install newer detonator drivers & you should be fine.
