If you are running Windows 10, then no, there are no upgrades that will provide you with this capability. Intel is not supporting the graphics engines in 2nd gen Core and older processors (you have 1st gen). The only driver that supports these is the Microsoft Compatibility driver. It works, but as you have seen, the OpenGL support is ancient. Worse, Microsoft has said that it has no plans to ever upgrade this driver and may even remove it in the near future. Bottom line, time to get a newer system.
