    Latest drivers? filthy OpenGL, at least it looks like it is a valid usage in that app. We have one that is just a bunch of buttons and text with some background sound that requires OpenGL2 to run at more than a snales pace. The stupid thing is that the whole thing could have been done in HTML/JS or Flash with half the effort and would have cut the spec requirement to almost nothing. To that end I had to deal with this BS on a Multipoint server to try and get it going so I do know of some stuff you could try.

    If it is not too graphics heavy you can actually replace the opengl DLL file or better put it in the same folder as the EXE so it overrides the native library and uses the CPU to implement openGL. If it uses lots of it, even stupid pointless raster shaders on pointless buttons (thanks STEPS) it will bog the CPU but depending on the level it could be a solution:

    I think you need to compile it meaning you need VS2008 and the Windows SDK installed. I have compiled a 64 bit version somewhere and will try to dig it up and post it but it looks like you're on XP anyway so it may not be of much help.

    Here, I think these are 32bit, not sure though. Worth a check, just chuck the whole lot in the same folder as the program EXE and then just that program will pick it up and try to use it.
