Error Message: OpenGL 2.0 or higher with the FBO extension is required. OpenGL version: 1.1.0

If you receive an "OpenGL 2.0 or higher with the FBO extension is required. OpenGL version: 1.1.0" error message when running the Windows player, there are three known root causes.

1) Your graphics processor is too old to support OpenGL 2.0

Most fairly modern graphics cards support OpenGL 2.0 which was released in 2004. If your GPU is much older than that, it may not support OpenGL 2.0 which is a minimum requirement to run Enplug.

You can determine what OpenGL version your device supports by looking up the specifications of your GPU on it's manufacturer's website or running this utility:

If your GPU does not support at least OpenGL 2.0, you will need to run Enplug on a different device or upgrade/add a discrete graphics card to your system which does support OpenGL 2.0 -

2) Your device does not have the latest manufacturer supplied graphics drivers installed

For Enplug to function correctly, your device must have the latest graphics drivers from your GPU manufacturer installed.

You can download these from the driver support page for your PC manufacturer, or the manufacturer page for your GPU.

• Intel GPU driver download:
• NVIDIA GPU driver download:
• AMD/ATI GPU driver download:

It is also recommended to have Windows Update run to check for other available driver updates:

Third party utilities like can be used if you are unable to locate the correct graphics driver for your system. 

3) You are running Windows 10 on a system with an incompatible graphics driver. This often occurs with 5th or 6th generation Intel graphics.

Due to a compatibility issue with Windows 10 + certain Intel integrated graphics drivers + Java, you will need to run an older version of Java on your system to resolve the issue.

1. Install the latest graphics driver available for your system
2. Uninstall all currently installed versions of Java
- First run the Java uninstaller tool:
- Then uninstall any versions of Java seen in the Windows uninstall dialogue:
3. Install Java 8 Update 51 32-bit: (or earlier)
4. Disable Java automatic updates, to prevent automatically updating to an incompatible version
