When installing or updating adaware antivirus 12 you might get an error message about OpenGL, and then you need to either update the graphic driver or install/update in a special mode.

This is an example of the error message:

OpenGL Error Message








It's best to update the graphic driver by running Windows Update and checking if computer manufacturer or graphic card manufacturer has a newer driver to install.

But if there is no newer graphic driver it's possible to switch to another rendering mode for adaware antivirus:

1. Select Control Panel -> System and Security -> System -> Advanced system settings (in left column)

2. In System Properties window: Select Advanced -> Environment Variables

3. In Environment Variables window: Click New under User variables

Environment Variables

Enter the variable name: ADAWARE_ANTIVIRUS_RENDER_MODE
Enter the variable value: 1

4. Click OK and check result


5. Click OK.

System Properties - Advanced

Click OK.

6. Install/Update adaware antivirus.

If you still get an OpenGL error message, please click on Ask a question on https://forum.adaware.com/index.php?/forum/197-adaware-antivirus-12/ and present your problem.
