I''ve already have my code based on OpenGL. But when my program runs on some other machines, it runs poorly. Finally I found that there''re no ICD drivers on there machines. I found that many common people aren''t going to install the video card vendor''s driver when Windows has successfully recognized the card without installing a ICD driver. I also found that on many video card, the DX drivers support more functions as well as better quality. I care about the quality very much! What should I do? I''m quite nervous. Give me some advice please.

If you plan on using ogl professionally, simply do what game developers tend to do. Include glsetup large in your package. It''s royalty free and you can install the drivers when you install your game.

Perhaps you should try out direct x for yourself to see if it suits your needs. Its best not to stick to the one api, better try them all at least once to work out the pros and cons to using each one. Then choose the one you think would do the job the best.
