There are several issues that I need to overcome. None of the utilities for OpenGL driver detection work on my laptop.
I have an Acer - Aspire with an Intel Pentium P6200 and Intel Integrated Graphics. Intel website only tells me the drivers shipped from the factory (2.1). The system has been updated, so I know that I have later drivers but can't get a utility which is compatible with my chipset.
One would think that I should be okay because I have updated graphics API drivers and OS (Win 7 ). It has DirectX 11 and I know that the chipset is compatible with OpenGL 4.X
I am building with Visual Studio Community Edition. Is OpenGL detection part of the build process in VS?
Advanced OpenGL features won't be needed by me for a couple years, so I am thinking that I should be okay on that basis.
