The company that wrote this app would know since folk would be asking this a lot.
As to the older drivers, unlike desktop video cards you know that the drivers can be specific to the laptop. Check the laptop's maker's page on that laptop to see if they archived drivers.
I am facing the following issue:
Recently, I installed a software for 3D landscaping and animation, called "Vue 8 complete". This is a fairly old version of the software; it was released in around summer 2010. Being a 3D type of software, it relies heavily on the GPU and supports OpenGL 2.1 (shader 4). Now, the problem is that even though my GPU is an Nvidia GeForce 315M, which does support same OpenGL as Vue, it is not recognized as being compatible by the program. Therefore, after displaying the following message "Sorry, your video board is not compatible with Vue", the application is restarted in software OpenGL mode. That, of course, is very slow and makes it difficult to work with the program.
So, I am wondering if there is some way I can bypass that incompatibility issue and make the program cooperate with my video board normally, meaning that I will be able to run it based on hardware OpenGL.
A possible solution that I thought of is by installing the oldest existing drivers for the video board. I do not know when exactly the NVidia GeForce 315M was released, but it has to be sometime in 2011. Does anyone know where I might find the oldest drivers for it? I am using a Toshiba satelite C670-14D computer, running Windows 7 64 bit version.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
