OpenGL error after updating windows

Post by FloatingBanana »

I was using LÖVE on Windows 7 32 bits and never had any problems until I updated to Windows 8.1 64 bits. Now I keep getting this error Image

Code: Select all

if anyMistake(self.english) then
    print("Sorry, english is not my first language")
end

It looks like you need to update your graphics drivers. You're currently using OpenGL 1.1, whereas LÖVE requires 2.1.

I scanned with Driver Booster and it said that all drivers are up to date.

Are you using a laptop? Does it have anything else other than an integrated GPU? maybe there are no drivers for windows versions above 7?
