Did you have installed the latest Detonator drivers?
I think you're using the XP drivers, which aren't capable of Opengl. :D
Just install from www.nvidia.com the latest drivers and off you go!

yeah that sounds like you are trying to run the game with the default XP drivers, you should obtain a newer set of drivers from http://www.nvidia.com , I also believe that the 23.12 drivers can now be found on windowsupdate (not sure if this is only the corporate version or not tho :p )

Naturally I am going on peoples previous assumptions that you have an NVIDIA graphics card, can you give a few more details, for example if you an Ati card you will have to visit http://www.ati.com

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
