OpenGL fix for Intel HD Graphics 3000 on Windows 10

Fix for Open GL on Intel HD Graphics 3000 - Windows 10

The drivers for Intel HD Graphics 3000 in Windows 10 does not expose all Open GL capabilities of the GPU. So software relying on Open GL features not present in Open GL 1.1 will not work. Using older versions of Windows or Linux might work since the chip have more features than the driver exposes.

The fix is to add a compatibility shim using the Windows ADK software.

1. Download and install Windows ADK


Make sure to download the version that fits your Windows version, so if you have Windows 10 1803 choose the 1803 version and so on.

We only need the Application Compatibility Tools module, so choose this in the installer:


2. Use the Compatibility Administrator to create the fix

Make sure to start the relevant 32 or 64 bit version of the program, based on which type of software you want to create the compatibility fix for. So if the software you want to fix is 64 bit, use the 64 bit version of the tool.

Right click the New Database menu entry, and choose Create New -> Application Fix...


Give the fix a name, and browse for the executable file you want to add the fix for. In this example I am adding the fix for Python 3 64 bit programs, so I locate python.exe in C:\Program Files\Python37.


Then click Next. We do not choose anything on this Compatibility Modes page, so just click Next again.


On the Compatibility Fixes page, scroll down and check the Win81RTMVersionLie option. Then click the Parameters button.


In the Parameters dialog box, Module name: field, type: ig4icd64.dll then click Add and then OK.


Click Next to the Matching Information page. Here, deselect all except the company name and product name options, then click Finish.


We have now created the fix needed, next is to save and install it.


Click the Save icon, and choose a name for the database. You will also need to choose a place to save the file and give the file a name, I just saved to the Documents folder.


When the database is saved, you can right click the database you just saved, and choose Install.

That should be it!

This solution did not work for me, but i found another one that DID and want to share it here in case somone else might have the same issue.
I need OpenGL > 3.1 to run with my Intel HD Graphics 3000 for the newest Minecraft version.
After the fix shown above the error message changed to this:
Fehlermeldung danach

The Solution:

Source: _

1. I downloaded: "mesa3d-20.2.0-release-mingw.7z"

2. I unzipped the file and executed "perappdeploy.cmd":

3. Follow the instructions (For me it was Java, because Java is running Minecraft and javaw.exe is the executable for that. I also had to install Java seperatly and add the new javaw.exe path to the Minecraft profile i was using, because i could not find the Java executable delivered with Minecraft):


PS: I first tried the version 23.1.8, but that did not work for me. After that i tried version 20.2.0 and it worked perfectly.

Please respond if it worked for you :D

Worked great to allow OpenSCAD to run on my 13 year old laptop. It's still plugging away after a SSD and RAM upgrade (now had 12GB even though the original specs say it maxes out at 8)
