    Windows 8.1 Update Pro 64-Bit


    OK, thank you for that information. I don't have any exclamation mark, just this terribly outdated driver.

    You can actually install updated "non-compatible" ATI Radeon HD 2000, 3000, and 4000 series drivers with OpenGL in Win8.

    There is a tutorial in Youtube that explains how to do it:

    Windows 8 Tutorial: Install ATI Radeon HD 2000, 3000, and 4000 series drivers with OpenGL - YouTube

    Hope this helps

    From what I read at the AMD site, the latest version of their driver that will work in Win8 with the HD 2x/3x/4x series cards is 12.6.

    Don't know if that install hack with work with newer versions of the drivers -- but I suspect it will not.
