  • OpenGL32.DLL

    Running WinXP & XP Pro, tested a powerbasic OpenGL demo from the
    source code forum called "Flying Tortilla"... and voila, it runs!

    I'm Surprised???

    I don't have any OpenGL32.DLL or variant loaded on my machines.

    Jules

    Jules,

    Yes, you have one, it is in your WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder
    and you have a copy of it in WINDOWS\SYSTEM\DLLCACHE.

    I shall post soon a new amazing GDImage OpenGL demo

      Hi Patrice.

      Checked my XP OS again, I see it now. Need better glasses.
      So this I now understand.

      But my XP Pro OS only has Windows\System folder no System32 folder
      and no DLLCACHE folder. I still don't see it, checked all hidden files too.

      I just ran one of my son's games (Medal of Honor, Allied Assualt)
      that needs OpenGL.DLL to run and says cannot find it, this must confirm that
      it's not on the XP Pro box, yet I can run an OpenGL powerbasic demo.

      Confused???

      Regards,
      Jules

      btw, Love your stuff!

        Very strange indeed.

        Copied OpenGL32.DLL to the windows\system folder of WinXP Pro
        and tried my son's game, a no-go. I then updated my video driver,
        re-installed the latest DirectX and uninstall/re-installed the game,
        now it runs. I then removed the OpenGL32.DLL that I copied and the
        game still works. Puzzeled???

        What is the mystery here? Why does the PowerBasic OpenGL demo and this
        game (that I know requires OpenGL), work without the this DLL ...Is I blind?

        Anyway, I'm playing some more with the openGL source code snippets.
        Best regards

          I'm not sure, but opengl.dll must be located on your system *somewhere*. I think OpenGL shipped with every version of Windows since Windows 98. Maybe when you are installing the graphics driver a vendor-specific version of opengl.dll is being used, rather than the standard version that ships with Windows?

          Thanks,
          Flick

                Thank you gentlemen!

                You can tell I'm a little rusty.

                It shows me the dll is there in the windows/system32 folder.

                But I think I have lost my mind, my XP PRO box only has windows\system folder.
                (I have the option on to show hidden files/folders). If I do a search, no results.

                Anyway, no big deal, I was only using my son's PC for a few days, now
                I'm back to my XP Home notebook and everything is humming along.

                Again, thanks so much for your help.

                Regards,
                Jules
