Hi !

Why does Open CASACDE have it's own opengl.dll file included, why not use the opengl32.dll that's included with Windows ?

Does the opengl.dll included with Open CASCADE take advantage of hardware acceleration ?

opengl.dll is not the replacer of opengl32.dll but is an interface between Open CASCADE and opengl32.dll. Then do not replace it !

Since opengl32 can take advantage of hardware accelaration, Open CASCADE does.

I hope it will help.
