Solved: All OpenGL Features in Photoshop CS5 not working

Q: Solved: All OpenGL Features in Photoshop CS5 not working

I installed Photoshop CS5 last week and began my tutorials on Adobe to learn how to access all the 'What's New' featues in Photoshop CS5. It didn't take long to realize these functions were not available to me. The short-cuts don't work or the options are grayed out.
I have contacted NVIDIA, Adobe, and NAPP Help Desk (as I am a member of NAPP) with no results in solving my problem.

The video card I have is on the approved list with Adobe and everyone at Adobe and NAPP says it should work and access all features in Photoshop. NVIDIA SAYS I NEED A QUADRO FX 1800 video cared. NAPP people say "NO". I don't need that expensive a card.

SO, To the best of my ablity, here is the information you may need to assist/help me. I sure hope someone out there can help.

I may need to upgrade my current video card, NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT (with latest updated drivers) to MAXAMIZE all functions of Photoshop CS5 without overkill.

My OS is:
Windows XP Home Edition SP3 32 bit
Intel (R) Core (TM)2 Duo CPU
E6850 @ 3.00GHz
3.00 GHz

I believe the video card I have is not allowing me to access any of the new features in Photoshop. (With or without OpenGL feature checked or unchecked) They are either grayed out or the short cuts donít work. I need you to advise me if this line of thinking is correct. The tools I have tried and canít access are:
Rotate View tool,
Sampling Ring,
HUE Color Picker,
Drag and Drop from Mini Bridge.
3D View of the New Bristle Brushes
(None of these functions are NOW available to me at this time. AND these are just the ones I tried, so, I have no hope any of the other features would work, either.)

Do any of you have a clue as to what I should do?
Is it just a setting within the card, itself.

I have reviewed all I need to within Photoshop CS5 (per Adobe and NAPP advice) and everything is as it should be as far as the correct boxes checked or unchecked for accessing these features.


Unavailable tools:
Rotate View tool,
Sampling Ring,
HUE Color Picker,
Drag and Drop from Mini Bridge.
3D View of the New Bristle Brushes
And the rest of the ones I havenít tried, yet.

I put up a post a few weeks back with the problem that the Windows Features On/Off only displays a blank page.

A fix from Microsoft was to try this:

reg delete HKLM\COMPONENTS /v StoreDirty

OK, did that but still the same problem.

Now I am getting an error code 80073712 that relates to windows update not working any more. A search on Google reveals that this is also associated to the first problem with the following advice:

When you try to install Windows Vista updates or components, you may experience the following symptoms:• When you try to install an update by using the Windows Update Web site, you receive an error message that includes the following error code:

• When you click Turn Windows features on or off in the "Programs and Features" Control Panel item, the Windows Features dialog box is empty. No features are shown.

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:1. Click Start, type cmd in the Start Search box, and then click Command Prompt under Programs.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

Note If you do not have administrator rights and permissions, start the Command Prompt program by right-clicking Command Prompt, clicking Run as administrator, and then typing administrator credentials.

Finally got onto a Microsoft techie in Sydney Australia who advised that yes, this 80073712 error was a "known bug" and no, MS had not as yet come up with a fix for it and that yes, he was aware that the suggested resolution on the MS link did not in fact actually correct the problem and that no, he could not give me any further advice ...... thanks for da money, you are now on your own!

OK, did a fast reinstall of Vista, all well again and problems fixed but what a way to have to solve it!!

Hello :

I have connected my Finepix AX300 camera to my computer via USB port.

My ASUS computer (with Windows 7 Home Premium) is recognizing the pictures via Windows Photo Viewer - I can bring up on screen my photos. However, when I clicked on 'File' I found that all the features (except delete and exit') were grayed out : when I clicked on 'copy' for example, nothing happened.

I also tried bringing up the photos with Irfanview, but again ran into a roadblock : I could see the primary folder for my Finepix AX300 camera, but was unable to access the subfolders containing the pictures.

Can anyone help me get access to my pictures with a view to copying and printing them?

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Hey all, thanks ahead of time for taking a look!

I've had this problem with Adobe Photoshop Extended (CS4 Version 11.0) and Microsoft Paint for about a month now. Anytime I try to "save" or "save as" with either of these programs, Vista produces the "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - Windows is checking for a solution" error. It then, after maybe 15 seconds or so, says "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

This happens when I try to save ANYTHING on either of these programs, but it is restricted to only these two programs. Everything else, including all Microsoft Office software and even irfanview, which is another image editing software, work flawlessly. I do not believe that I downloaded any software prior to this problem. I've searched all over the internet for a solution but I can only find people having trouble saving as JPGs, but I cannot save at all with these programs, normally I can find someone who has solved the same problem and I follow their steps but this has absolutely stumped me. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!

I know that some of these have no correlation to the actual issue, but I figured it's worth a shot. Here's all that I've tried to fix it -

Hi. Ive had the same graphics card in my pc for quite a while now (ATI Radeon x550) i recently decided (after a time of using it) that i wanted to set up proper partitions so i could use Ubuntu (linux) and windows on the same pc which was working fine. Anyways i fomatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows then using the partitions i had already made i installed ubuntu. Since then OpenGl has stopped working on windows and ubuntu. Ive tried reinstalling the drivers on windows and ive tried unistalling and reinstalling the drivers provided on ubuntu (intrepid) and neither work. The reason i know that opengl isnt working is ive run tests on windows and ubuntu and also a few of the games i play dont seem to be working properly either (they play fine for 1-10 minutes then the pc crashes and i have to reboot) I hope someone can help

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I decided to post it here, because my problem appears to be driver-related.

I have been having some serious problems with certain games quite recently. I was unable to resolve them, so I decided to uninstall win2kpro and install winxppro. I finished doing this and the problem remains. Here is what I found:

Games that work: Rome: Total War, Silent Hunter 3

Games that didn't work, but work now:

Freelances (used to begin loading, then error)

Games that Don't work and didn't work:

Soldier of Fortune (Error during initialization SYSTEM ERROR
GLW_LoadOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem)

Homeworld 2 (screen goes dark, makes a sound, then drops back to desktop)

The odd thing is that Homeworld 2 DID work with win2k, but then suddenly stopped functioning one day.

Some things that happened between the two events:

ATi Radeon 9700 pro fried; replaced with identical card
Some windows updates
Ran a virus scan, deleted loads of viruses (irrelevant because this was only done on last installation)
Ran a full system check with Spybot and Adaware, deleted spyware
Installed a RAID system to use for storage and page file storage (512-512 meg)

I always assumed that I had OpenGL on my computer, and that it was some plugin or driver or something that allowed my video card to display graphics that were made with OpenGL (Like certain games contain). Recently I was having problems with a program and someone suggested that I change my video card's OpenGL setting buffer flipping mode to "block tranfer" and set the memory used to 32 or less. I didn't know where to find my OpenGL settings. It looks like it's not even on my computer, but I do have GLExcess, which I can't figure out how to use (Or what it is for). The fact that he said my "video card's OpenGL settings" makes me think that my video card has OpenGL settings as though it expects me to have OpenGL (Is it even a program you download, or is it inherent in most video cards?). What are these two programs, and where can I download OpenGL (If I am supposed to, and, if not, where are my OpenGL settings on my computer?). I am confused. Thanks for any help!

I can't access any of the features in the Start Menu except for Desktop (E.g. I click on Mail and the tile has the little animation like it's been presses but nothing else happens). I've also been having trouble with my Cyborg V3 mouse, which worked fine until I moved my computer (which is when the Start Menu started playing up too).

For the mouse I've tried manually installing the drivers after downloading them from Saitek's driver page only for me to be brick walled (I followed the on screen prompts but it came to 'Please select which device you want to install' and wouldn't register my mouse as being plugged in), I tried downloading the driver from Windows Update but it just says it failed to install (Error code: 800f0219). I tried going into Device Manager (it came up as an Unknown Device and kept flashing between the 'Other Device' category and the 'Human Interface category'), uninstalling the drivers I currently had and then re-installing them through Device Manager, which came up saying there was some error with the INF file ('written for W95 or later'). I've also tried defragging and cleaning my registry.

As for when I moved my PC... I was just moving it from one side of the room to the other, turned off the wall socket, unplugged everything, plugged everything into the back of my PC (didn't notice these sockets hadn't been switched off too) and I ended up getting electrocuted plugging my signal cable into my monitor (I didn't think much of it at the time but ...

Basic problem: I did a system recovery on my HP ProBook 4730s laptop and am having an issue with my OpenGL being too low. I am also having an issue with my vRam being too low.This was not an issue before the recovery.
1. Message received from Corona SDK "Minimum OpenGL required is 2.1; Your machine's OpenGL version is 1.1.0."
2. Message received from Photoshop "Some features require a minimum of 512MB of vRAM. Photoshop has detected less than that on your system."
Both programs were working without issue before I did the Recovery. I have updated the drivers since the recovery. Everything I researched suggests the only solution is a new graphics card which is impossible since it is a laptop. It doesn't make sense - any help would be greatly appreciated!

Recently I've discovered that Win 7 taskbar icon features such as displaying progress by color or showing media player controls (play, pause) that support it. It seems applications can not make calls to windows 7 taskbar features because it's a global problem and not just with one application. For example: Media Controls of MusicBee, Spotfiy and TeraCopy's copy/move progress coloring as an icon background. I'm using the default Aero theme.

Music Bee looks like this:
It should have Cover Art and play/pause/stop controls beneath it. Also it's just not related to Music Bee only.

Any way I can fix this?

I just got this computer a week ago.  It's the ASUS Transformer T100T.  Laptop/Tablet.  The computer asked me to uprade yesterday at 3:00pm.  It ran for 8 hours with this message "working on features 100% complete don't turn off computer".  It has the 5 dots making a consistent circle next to the word Working and it's over a black screen.
I let the computers battery run out.  Turned it on this morning and the "working on features....." was up again and has been for 5 hours now.  I have tried everything.  Microsoft wasn't much help.  I'm not sure if the keyboard is communicating with the tablet part, but should that even matter since it's running on the tablet.  The tablet will fall asleep but won't let me turn it off.  How do I control this computer or am I out of luck?? 

A:"working on features 100% complete don't turn off computer"

 I'd try two things.  First I'd boot from a repair drive.  If you don't have one you can make one on another Windows 8.1 computer.  If that doesn't work, I'd boot from a live disc (like Ubuntu or Mint Linux) and save my data, then restore to factory settings.
Good luck.

Trying to run Minecraft and it gives me this message:

Bad video card drivers!

Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

Just installed win 7, but i still need openGL it seems.
Where do i find this graphic driver?

A:Solved: Download OpenGL?

Update: Problem solved! see edit

Shameless self bump.

The main thing is this:

Bad video card drivers!
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

How do i fix this?

I already updated the video card drivers (Nvidia gforce 6150se nforce 430) via device manager and it says that my driver software is up to date.

You need to update the graphics driver to update its OpenGL support. Which Intel Graphics accelerator do you have? OR what model of computer or desktop do you have?

I am having an issue where the windows features under Internet Information Services/World Wide Web Services/Application Development Features will not install.  Specifically those which are clicked on when one clicks on ASP.NET.  All necessary versions
of ASP.NET are installed.  IIS 7 is installed.
In the Event Log there are two errors which are shown in conjunction with this problem.
1. Unable to install counter strings because the SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ASP.NET_64\Performance key could not be opened or accessed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the Win32 error code.
The error code is: 020000000E0E0000
2. Installing the performance counter strings for service ASP.NET_64 (ASP.NET_64) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.
The error code is: 02000000C9120000
I am thinking that the performace key is somehow not accessable due to some security feature.

A:Turn Windows Features on or off Application Development Features

I appreciate the replies, but it has nothing to do with running as administrator.
I solved the problem by turning IIS off all together and reinstalling it with the features I needed.

I'm getting an Opengl subsystem error (complete console error attached) when I start Mohaa. I was told this game uses the Q3 engine? I run Quake 3 Arena with no problem if it makes any difference and UT2003 with no problems either. I've read in some forums that older video card drivers can cause this problem. This is where I'm puzzled what to do or even how to check. I DON'T have a video card! Is there drivers for the motherboard video? Is this even a driver issue? Could someone guide me through the troubleshooting process to get this game to work? Thanks in advance. . .

My system is as follows:
Abit NF7-M with on board Nvidia Geforce4 MX GPU
AMD Sempron2800
512meg ram (32meg assigned to GPU)
2-40gig Maxtor drives
HP CD Burner
Sony CD Player
Intel 536EP smart modem

A:Solved: Opengl errors Mohaa

you don't say if you have a graphics card or not. From that error report, it looks like you don't have one, BUT you MUST have some kind of graphics hardware to display a picture!

A 3d accelerator (aka Graphics card) is a MUST with ANY of todays games and i do mean MANDATORY. There is no way to play ANY modern game without a graphics card.


oops. i just realised you have intergrated graphics. if you are using this for ANYTHING more than office work or just web browsing, then get a dedicated board NOW!!!!

Currently I'm using a Radeon 9200 video card, and I'm using it in OpenGL for some Direct3D issues. I'm not sure what version of OpenGL it uses, but I'm sure it isn't 2.0. I use ATI tray tools to set all of the OpenGL settings to max speed, sacrificing quality severely. The performance is still very sluggish in games that I play, and I was wondering if there is any way to further increase the performance of OpenGL.

A:Solved: Maximizing OpenGL performance.

I don't think so. Your card supports OGL 1.5 if I am not mistaken.(I could be)

I have found no downloads of OGL anywhere, and I have looked hard. OGL is provided with your driver downloads as far as I know. Sorry bout that.

I have had this problem for a while now. I want to play this game called savage but it says i need to support openGL version atleast 1.2 (it says I have the generic one )
I have an ati saphire radeon X700 graphics card.
i have tried updating graphics drivers from ati website (the catalyst pack)
tried omega drivers and some other, tried using driver cleaner to remove any trace of ati graphics drivers on my pc and now for some reason during the setup for ati drivers it says
"setup could not find any drivers compatible" .
I have also tried manually install openGL using different setups from website but they also failed.
Does anyone have any ideas plz
even maybe a way to run openGL without directly using graphics card or something. I have tried using 3D analyze but either my settings were wrong or it just doesnt work, someone also told me to place openGL.dll in he folder containing the .exe for the game but it made no difference.
this is virtually all the things I tried and hope someone can help

I can install and play Return to Castle Wolfenstein on my Win 98 machine, using the original drivers that came with the graphics card: an Excalibur Geforce 2 MX400 (nVidia).
My brother has the same graphics card, but the driver files have been updated from the nVidia site. He is running Win XP, and although the game installs, it will not run.
I keep getting an error stating "Glide file missing" and "Could not run OpenGL subsystem" or words to that effect.
The original CDs do not run on the XP machine either - it says "Disc Corrupted".

I have visited a couple of game sites and they say that all I need to do is install the latest drivers from the manufacturer, but the opposite appears to be true - the old drivers work and the new ones do not.

All other games tried worked fine, although this may be to do with their use of Dirext X as opposed to OpenGL? (not really my area)

Any help?

My daughters Dell 1520 Inspiron laptop has begun to work strangely over the past week. First she noticed it wouldn't go into hibernatre mode. I can't get the windows update program to run, it open in IE and then says "it cannot display the webpage." Then the start toobar at the bottom went to a "grey" colour and her wireless internet wouldn't connect (or I coudn't get ethernet to work either) - searching for IP address all the time. Browser seems to be redirecting to other pages as well, not the ones we are searching for. Also when the grey toolbar showed up her sound went. Sometimes if she is lucky when she reboots the normal toolbar returns with sound and she can connect to the internet. We have run several programs - spybot search and destroy, malware bytes, and superantispyware - all have found problems and fixed them, but system problems still remain.

How are you? I'm new to computers & drivers in general. I need a little help finding the correct drivers for my Dell Inspiron 531s with Windows XP (64-bit).
The latest version of NVIDIA OpenGL is not compatible with my Dell Inspiron 531s (with Windows XP 64-bit). Please provide link(s) (other than http://developer.nvidia.com/object/opengl_3_driver.html) to any webpage with download-links to earlier versions of NVIDIA OpenGL? Like I mentioned before, the latest version of Open GL is not compatible with Dell Inspiron 531s, so I need to find earlier versions (or the last version that was made to work with PC's like mine with 64-bit/Windows XP).
Thanks for your time & help, in advance.

My brother recently installed CS4 on my computer, a HP Pavillion HDX, but I have a problem whenever I open photoshop on it. The photos look tiled and have lines all over them.

Here's a screenshot


I'm not too sure what sub forum this goes on, so I am putting it on this one as I am running Vista service pack 2.

A:Photoshop CS4 isn't working

Are you able to view the pictures with Windows Photo Gallery. If so ,this would rule out any problem with the .jpg file.

The only other thing would be a botched install. You could try to uninstall then reinstall. To uninstall go to <control panel/programs/uninstall program/Adobe Photoshop CS4>. You simply click on the setup.exe file in the zip folder to reinstall.

If all else fails, here is an Adobe Photoshop forum: http://forums.adobe.com/index.jspa

Windows forced an upgrade to 10 this afternoon and suddenly I'm unable to use Photoshop 5.5. (Yes, I know it's an old program but it had no issues in Windows 8.1) The program will simply not open.

I can't afford a new version of PS, the one I have fits my needs, and I'm bordering on furious that it's not working due to this upgrade I did not want.

Is there any way to get to the program to work in 10? If not, I want to know how I can roll back to my previous version of Windows since I am incredibly unhappy with the OS so far.
