I ended up nuking it, the 180 eval version was nearly finished.

I forgot about Dx version, that one does run, albiet i think it's missing a lot of the up-to-date stuff.

blackhole:
The DX code is old, raggedly and in horrible shape... but it does work.

So, do you have a legal copy of XP Pro that you could install?  If you do, then what I'd recommend is to torrent a copy of XP Corporate SP2, and use that.  Then you don't have to Activate the darn thing.  And you can set regdone=1 in the registry to get Windoze update, and get set up ... let me know if you need help.

I take this to mean that there exist some OpenGL Vista drivers that actually work?
Where can I get these?
