OpenGL (Open Graphics Library), is the standard 3D Graphics API (Application Programming Interface), and is often required in some games or software as it provides these programs with graphics & images. If your video card does not support OpenGL, or does support OpenGL and the drivers are out of date, it can trigger an 'OpenGL' error.
Below are a couple of ways to update your video card drivers.
Windows Device Manager
If you're not sure who the manufacturer of your video card is, you can use the information to try and update it using the Windows Device Manager:
- Type 'device manager' into the search bar on your taskbar, then click on 'Device Manager' from the results
- Click the 'Display adapters' arrow to expand the category
- Right-click the video card, and select 'update driver' from the dropdown menu
If the device manager doesn't find any new updates, you may want to try manually updating through the respective manufacturers support site below.

If you've updated your video drivers and still receive the 'OpenGL' error, then unfortunately you will be unable to play the game as your video card does not support OpenGL.
