View Full Version : Should NT PD4 OGL work?

1st July 1999, 18:25
I have installed the PD4 with the OGL ICD to my work computer (P2/350/G200) which has NT4 Server english version, SP5 and DX5. When running any OGL app, following error message appears:

wglinfo: software.exe - DLL Initialization Failed

Initialization of the dynamic link library C:\WINNT\System32\G200ICD.DLL failed.
The process is terminating abnormally.

Yes, the g200icd.dll is in place and is opengl32.dll and glu32.dll. If someone in Matrox or BB-team has any ideas where to start resolving this problem, I'd appreciate them.

If you have installed the bootleg DX5 drivers in NT4, the OpenGl for the G200 NT ICD will booger up and not run right.

You must have the legitimate SP3/SP4 DX3 drivers installed properly.

I am one of the secret BB crew for the G200 NT OpenGL ICD.

Replaced the bootleg DX5 drivers with SP5 DX3 and it just worked. http://forums.gagames.com/forums/smile.gif

Big thanks LightHeaded.

It seems that dynamic lights in GLQuake/GLQWCL DO WORK in NT OGL. So it seems it's only W9x OGL specific problem. And Quake-busy icon seems to draw to top of the desktop like the ICDb2. Hmm..
