Updating OpenGL to 2.0


I have v1.1 of the OpenGL driver installed on my Windows 7 machine. (I knew it from here)

Now, I want to update it to v2.0.

I also figured that my Intel graphics card driver is old. So, will updating the Intel driver also update OpenGL?

Best Answer

Absolutely Yes!

Here is the procedure:

  1. Verify your OpenGL version with this program: OpenGL Extension Viewer

  2. Go to OpenGL getting started page -- select your graphics card vender, and go to their website to download the latest driver.

  3. Install it.

In Intel's case:

  1. Automatically get your driver version checked from here (Java required)

  2. If your driver is older, it will automatically provide you the link to the newer version.

  3. Download and install it.
