A couple of days ago I bought the Asus AH3650 Silent AGP video card. This is the most recent AGP Radeon type card I could get hold of.

The problem is that even if DirectX works fine, I can't use OpenGL applications. OGL query tools identify the video renderer as 'GDI generic' and card's vendor as "Microsoft Corporation" which is very bad. To experiment I installed Windows XP (SP2) on a new partition a couple of times, downloaded some older Asus drivers, tried to install the most recent AMD drivers - nothing worked so far. OpenGL games don't work.

But depending on the driver supplier, the results differ. AMD drivers usually make OGL apps crash either producing exceptions or "Context creation errors" (don't know what that means though).

I have a Pentium IV 2.66 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM, my primary OS is Windows XP (SP3).

If you have any idea what I can do in this situation, please don't keep it a secret.

Overinstall the drivers, others have had issues with the Catalyst ICD not registering.

Oh.

asus card...

uninstall the Asus enhanced display driver, and all asus versions of the drivers then download the 9.7 kit from ati.amd.com.

Actually, since it's AGP, be sure to get the AGP hotfix, that may be your safest bet.

I unistalled the Asus drivers completely using Driver Sweeper utility in VGA mode. I deleted everything manually that the Sweeper couldn't handle. Then I rebooted and installed this package: Catalyst AGP Hotfix - Radeon HD 3000 and Radeon HD 2000 Series AGP products

The system works normally, but OpenGL applications crash producing errors stating that "the other memory is probably corrupt" and then "Context creation error".

:(

Edit: forgot to mention that the same drivers work perfectly under Ubuntu.

Can you post some screenshots of Realtek VR's opengl extension viewer.

Ok, search your system for ATKOGL32.dll

if you find it, remove it from the hdd,
you will also need to remove ATKOGL from the registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\OpenGLDrivers

It won't launch. It produces a Memory access exception and Context creation error.

As for the other solution, I'll check this evening. I think I remember having seen this entry in the registry.

yes, its a component of the Asus enhanced driver and isn't removed by driversweeper.

Well, it seems like in my current installation ATKOGL32.dll is nowhere to be found.

The last two hours I was experimenting a bit and found out that is was possible to replace the OGL driver (atioglxx.dll). I gathered a bunch of them, but there is only one that works so that OGL apps don't crash. Nothing promising though. I've attached a screenshot of what I see in Realtek VR OGL viewer.

the system icd is definitely not being started

did you atleast check that registry key i mentioned? try deleting the opengl key itself then reinstalling the drivers.

Check in add-remove programs for any asus software and remove them.

Actually, the "Learn > Comprehend > Post" thing you have said is against you not me. Autoruns does also show some drivers because sometimes Windows treat them as "services" and it can open the right registry for each of them. I have used this program for more than a year.

Have a better behaviour and don't try to troll.

No display driver, or opengl for that matter is installed as a user mode service.
System level services are never displayed by applications like that.
