    GMA500 Windows 8.1 OpenGL 2.0 not Working


    Hi, i'm unable to run OpenGL2.0 in Windows 8.1 Preview Edition.
    I read other posts and from I've understand you simply fix INI driver file to enable it.
    I was applying this tip to my driver but didn't work.
    Someone can help me? Device is correct and opengl is correctly installed in C:\windows\system32
    DRIVER is AVAILABLE HERE : It is an Intel Embedded Graphic Driver Compiled (Driver for Windows 7/8 rev0.1)
    Driver is WDDM1.1 so installable on win8
    Thank you in advace

    Hello, did you try to install the windows 7 drivers from intel site? It is an old one but may work perfectly for you!

    Thank you for your answer but sadly intel official support was a total s@hit! They didn't add opengl support for intel gma 500. i had to migrate to embedded driver for a better support in graphic. probably can't install because there isn't a digital firm in iemgd package
