    Update OpenGL


    Hey guys,

    I want to install Corona SDk on Windows 8.1,but the only video driver avaliable for my video card (ATI Radeon HD 2400) is the generic cideo driver provided by Microsoft,and it has an OpenGL driver version 1.7 or something like that. In order to run Corona on my PC I need at least OpenGL 2.2.

    How can I update the OpenGL driver in this case,known that on ATI website I can't find a driver for my video card for windows 8.1.

    Thanks!

    Hi, uninstall your current driver, restart the computer and then install this one Legacy.

    Good luck, werty
