Probably a graphics/other driver problem. If an application crashes when it''s accessing graphics hardware, it can crash your computer sometimes. Isn''t supposed to happen though.

Make sure you have the latest drivers installed.

I''ve installed directX. It solved my problem.
Ahh... directX 9.0 is very good. It make my openGl programs fastier

Thanx for all

It all depends on the drivers used. Some drivers may use parts of DirectGraphics.

Yeah, but aren''t all OpenGL implementations for windows based of off Microsofts original OpenGL32? They never incorporated DX into the design because it wasn''t around back then. Unless your card has some shared functionality, which is just plain weird. What card do you have?

Actually, in quite a few modern cards OpenGL accesses the Direct3D libs. Don''t ask why, though...

Now a days the opengl32 is just a wrapped interface to the real opengl dll (nvogl.dll for nvidia) it does nearly nothing anymore.. in fact, i bet you should get opengl to run just fine without opengl32 if you just get the function pointers out of the ''real'' dll

Hi all,

MazyNoc is right and I know the Nvidia drivers access ddraw.dll for sure because one of their beta drivers was crashing in OGL all the time a while back. The AV was occuring in DDRAW.DLL so they must do something with directX.

I read somewhere that dx is used for startup code or something when an OGL app first grabs the device context...could be wrong though
