Catalyst 3.9 patch for AIW cards

Posted on Tuesday, Nov 11 2003 @ 13:32 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
ATi has released a patch for their Catalyst 3.9 drivers. This patch fixes an OpenGL issue with Radeon All In Wonder (AIW) cards.
OpenGL games and applications fail to launch, and/or an error message appears indicating that "OpenGL could not initialize". Other error messages may appear.

The following are examples of OpenGL games and applications:
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Quake III Arena
Call Of Duty
Maya 3D

To resolve this issue, download and install this driver HotFix.

NOTE: After installing this HotFix, the product name in Device Manager will appear as "RADEON xxxx Series" instead of "ALL IN WONDER xxxx". This should not impact performance or features in any way.
The patch can be found here
