    I get the following errors when running the all versions of Angry Birds on Windows 8 DESKTOP, These are the Desktop Version of Angry Birds and not the Metro Version

    They run perfectly fine on Windows 7 but not so on Windows 8 :(


    Angry Birds/Rio/Space/Star Wars all give the same error: :(

    OpenGL 2.0 renderer not supported! Reason:
    OpenGL 2.0 is not supported



    OpenGL 1.4 renderer not supported! Reason:
    OpenGL 1.3 is not supported



    I know that there are metro versions of Space and Star Wars available but still can't I run the Desktop versions?

    Bad Piggies is working absolutely fine.

    Is there any way I can run them on Windows 8 Desktop Mode?

    :weeping:

    You will need to update your graphics card driver to support these OpenGL versions.
    Once installed, the games should run okay.

    Thanks for the tip Tito ;)

    I got it working by downgrading to the stable Windows 7 Driver, instead of inboxed Windows 8 bare-bone driver, Thanks :worthy:

    Why a Win7 driver when ATI has a Win8 driver (ccc 12.10)
