OpenGL in Win2k

Recommended Posts

Basically my question is "Is it possible?" I''m working through the NeHe tutorials, and have downloaded the .pdf versions so that I can take them to work w/ me, but the computer @ work is using Win2k. Is it possible to execute OpenGL programs in Win2k? Thanks

Great! That''s good news, considering I have massive amounts of time just burning away doing nothing @ my job. (I figure that out of 7 hours a day I probably only work 30 min.) BTW: I''ve also heard of some problems w/ 3d FPM in Win2k, do you have any trouble w/ frame rates or is it something else?

I don't play games, I work with OpenGL
Some (mostly 'older') games do have issues with W2k
and the NT kernel in general.

Just make sure your drivers are updated.

EDIT: This was just a general note to someone, who wishes to use his graphics card

>>I don''t play games, I work OpenGL
That''s what I''m planning on doing, but since I''m VERY new at this, I''d like to be able to experiment w/ OpenGL and see the results rather than waiting 6 hours to get home. But it doesn''t seem to be too much of a problem... I have all the service packs, and I should have the drivers (if not I''ll just download ''em). Thanks a bunch.
