Windows Me and Nehe framework

After Windows Me auto installation of drivers, Nehe examples stop working (No hardware used). When I install each driver by myself, Nehe examples work and use video hardware. Does anybody experience the same problem?

I tried Creative Lab Riva TNT, Asus 6800 (GEFORCE 256DDR), and ATI XPERT128 on Winodws Me. I tried Nehe examples 10 and 22 which were compiled on Windows 98.

When Windows Me installed a driver by itself, then neither examples 10 nor 22 used video hardware (very slow). The strage thing is that, after I manually installed a driver which was obtained from NVIDIA or ATI site, Nehe examples 10 and 22 use video hardware nicely.

It seems there is a problem on auto driver installation of Windows Me.

By the way, on which OS, did you compile Nehe examples? I compiled them on Windows 98. If I compiled them on Windows 2000, will the problem be gone?

The default drivers don''t use hardware acceleration... Its that simple. They don''t, and are not supposed to. I think ms did this for compatibility reasons.
