Is there an Intel G41 Express Chipset driver update that supports OpenGL on Windows 8.1 x64?

Hello guys,

I have been always using a software of astronomy called Stellarium on Windows 7 x64, without any problem. But now, I installed it on Windows 8.1 x64 and when I try to open it, an error message says: "Your platform does not support the minimum Open GL 1.2 required. Please, update the drivers of your video card."

As we can see, that's not a hardware problem because I have already used Stellarium in the same pc, but there's a problem with the driver of my graphics. My video card is the Intel G41 Express Chipset and there's no update driver of this video card, for Window 8/8.1 in the Intel Download Center. Is this a configuration problem in my system?

I am an amateur astronomer and this is my favourite planetarium simulator, so any help is gonna be very apreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi renatronic,

The G41 Express driver is provided by Microsoft within your Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit) installation. This type of driver is called Inbox, and this is a native driver that is supplied with the Operating System.

In other words, the driver is automatically installed during installation. If you are looking for an updated driver, they are available through Microsoft Windows Updates.

See the following URL for additional information:
