Question OpenGL; That option is greyed out in Photoshop...for weeks.


Dec 4, 2009
See my signature for most components/system info.

Everything is updated. I have tried both Nvidias "gamingdriver" and "studiodriver". Installed via Geforce Experience, default settings)

OpenGL; That option is greyed out in Photoshop...for weeks.
(Autocad can't use OpenGL either)

I get these messages, no matter what I try:

"This feature requieres graphics processor acceleration".
"OpenGL Drawing must be enabled to use these settings"

And; "3D features require a minimum of 512 mb vram".
I'll guess that problem will go away, or are easily solved, when I get OpenGL to work..?

Display adapter properties for display 1 (and 2):
Integrated RAMDAC
Total available Graphics Memory: 39 GB
Dedicated Video Memory 6 GB
System video Memory: 0
Shared System Memory: 32 GB

Monitors: Iiyama PL3070WQ, displayport.

UPDATE: I also have PS CS5 (Extended) installed, and there OpenGL was activated! That should be a clue? (but not for me...)
