If it's on Windows 7, it doesn't work. Try it on XP, it works.

No need to downgrade, that'd just do more harm than good. I'll be searching for a solution.

If you are really desperate, use a Virtual Machine to run Windows XP on whatever OS you have now.

Try right-clicking the executable and choosing different compatibility settings.

OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a universal API for devices that is used to render 2D and 3D objects. Common examples of applications that use OpenGL would be Google Earth, computer games, etc. An OpenGL driver would be what your computer needs to render the graphics. If you can list the model number for your computer, I may be able to find you an OpenGL driver. :)

It's a Samsung? Can't find a download for an OpenGL driver from a reliable site, so maybe check if you already have one. Try installing an application like Google Earth, and in the start menu folder for it, there should be "Launch Google Earth in OpenGL mode". Try opening that, and if it works, then you should already have the driver.

yes, I have a samsung. and I figured out where I had heard OpenGL from. It's a minecraft option :P if I have the OpenGL option turned to ON, does that mean that I have it? and just a note, thanks for helping me. and I thought I was tech-savvy XD.

No problem man. I assume you have it, if it runs during Minecraft. Too bad the little desktop toys still don't work.
