By the way, a technical question.
My OpenBVE, located on an external disk, crashed. I tried to re-install it, but I was always blocked by the OpenGL issue, as I don't have administrator privilege on my laptop. What to do in such a case? Do you know if an alternative installation process for OpenGL exist? Or is it possible to ask OpenBVE not to use OpenGL?
Thanks for the info !

fcancalon,

  • what exactly blocked OpenBVE? What message did you get? At what stage did it fail?
  • are your DLLs and config files in the right place?
  • is .NET Framework 4 installed correctly?
  • isn't there a "non-english" character in the path to your OpenBVE folder (like D:/Játékok/OpenBVE)
  • you could try another OpenBVE version and see if it works
  • you could try to clean install OpenBVE from the official website


BTW, haven't you talked to Uwe about the future of the wiki (I'm just asking you because you've spent a lot of time on improving its content)?

I believe your problem is the display driver installation.

No. You must have administrator privilege to install the display driver, or else nothing 3D will work.
In some case the Windows Update will help you install that if it is turned on and it can find one, in that case you can omit administrator privilege.
