Running Angry Birds on the BUILD Samsung Tablet with Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Saturday, April 21, 2012

If you try to install and run Angry Birds on your BUILD machine, you’ll soon find that you can’t run it because there is no support for OpenGL. AT the first it looks like no support in the beta of Windows 8, but the problem is actually happens also on old Windows version, and the real cause is lack of OpenGL support is in the Display Adapter driver.  I decided that no matter what, I am going to run Angry Birds on my machine. After several hours I can say that I’ve made it. But not without getting deep...

Internal Stripping
