READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION! Hello, everyone. I've originally made this video because a few people have messaged me saying how the 'OpenGL 2.0 Support Error' keeps coming up every time they attempt to play a game. You can TRY THESE SOLUTIONS to try & solve the issue. I'm just covering the MAIN REASONS as to why this would happen, & what you can do about it. The PROBLEM is mainly your GRAPHICS CARD & the GRAPHICS CARD DRIVERS. (Can also be your motherboard.) Also, I've covered all of the information about DirectX that you may need. Anyways, watch & enjoy!

NOTE: This can all be done in both 32bit & 64bit version of Windows.
Note: You can also check which version of OpenGL you have by looking under Graphics in Speccy.
Check out the Windows Compatibility Center to see if your Graphics card(s) can support DirectX 11: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/compatibility/win7/CompatCenter/ProductViewerWithDefaultFilters?TempOsid=win7&Locale=en-us&Type=Hardware&ProductCategory=Graphics%20cards%20%26%20components&CurrentPage=0&TotalPages=1&ShowCriteria=0&SortCriteria=Relevance&Compatibility=Unknown&LastRequested=2
Check out the Windows Compatatibility Center to see if your motherboard(s) can support DirectX 11 by either: Typing in your motherboards name & model number OR selecting a brand name that matches the same name as your motherboard in: Top Brands under the list of Graphics cards & components.
NOTE: To find the name & model number of Graphics card & or motherboard, look in your user's manual or search online.

NOTE: The DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer will update your current version of DirectX when you download & install it. However, if your graphics card can not support it, it will install the appropriate version, which will most likely be the same one you've had before: version 9.0c or 10.
*All versions of Windows include DirectX by default so you shouldn't ever really need to "install" DirectX as a software program.
*However, Microsoft frequently releases updated versions of DirectX and installing the latest updates may be the fix to a DirectX problem you're having or may give performance increases in your games and graphics programs.
*Time Required: Installing DirectX usually takes less than 15 minutes
*Complete the DirectX installation by following any directions from Microsoft's website or from the DirectX installation program.
*Restart your computer, even if you're not prompted to do so.
After restarting your computer, test to see if updating to the latest version of DirectX corrected the problem you were having.
*System requirements: Supported operating systems: Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows XP Service Pack 3.
*Instructions on how to download: Click the Download button on this page to start the download, or choose a different language from the drop-down list and click Go.
