I didn't have that trouble I-Don, but i do know that certain people have trouble with certain OpenGL programs (their cards are crap and they thought that opengl was fine by testing any 3d program to see if it works).


I've done some digging and finally got a solid fact why Fasm's OpenGL demo failed on exit. It's OpenGL DLLs for XP failed to shutdown OpenGL RC since it based on DirectX.

So I remove completely OpenGL32 and GLU32 DLLs and replace with OpenGL95 DLLs. You can't simply copy or delete or rename the XP version since it will restore again automatically. I just make a backup copy the XP version DLLs and replace with OpenGL95 DLLs version into DLLCACHE.

Now I got all Fasm GL demos and other old OpenGL programs working properly. I simply don't believe nowadays graphics card is a crap. It's a set of drivers comes with WinXP were utterly craps, instead.

Well, usually the drivers are made by the manufactuers, and you buy them together, so i just assumed it would be easier to just say card since it *COULD* imply both.

I had a similar problem here: http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=8154

I've reported to Avira that it's false positive. I'll be waiting for the answer.
