What the warning means
OpenGL is the interface through which QTM communicates with the graphics hardware driver in your computer. OpenGL specifies how this communication should work and depending on the age of your driver and hardware, different revisions of the OpenGL specification will be supported. While QTM will still work even though it tells you the desired version is not supported by your computer, it is recommended that you update to the latest release of the driver to increase stability, performance and visual appearance.
What to do about it
For laptop computers you may check the computer manufacturer’s website for updates. If you find no updates there or if they, too, are outdated, proceed with the instructions for workstation computers. For workstation computers, you first need to determine the manufacturer and model of your graphics hardware. The easiest way to do that is to use the DirectX Diagnostic Tool.
- In Windows 7 just type dxdiag in the search field in the start menu and start the dxdiag program that is found.
- In Windows XP click Start and choose Run. Type dxdiag in the Open box and click OK.
- In the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, go to the display tab.
- In the Device section, you can see both manufacturer and name of the device.
Once you know the manufacturer and model of your graphics hardware visit the manufacturer’s website and download the latest drivers. Links to the most common graphics card manufacturers can be found below.
