We have an Open GL application built on Win NT-4.0
When we try running the same on Win 95 version is 4.00.950B on a machine , it runs but it doesnt run on a machine with Win95 4.00.950 it doesnt run.

Note:From MicroSoft ,it appears that 4.00.950 B is called OSR2

I would like to know is there any easier way to run OpenGl programs on the  later version with out Upgrading to OSR2.
Early response is appreciated.

Thanx in advance

I 'think' that earlier version of Win95 did not include OpenGL .. instead you have to dsitribute the OpenGL dll's with your app.

This is because of your OpenGL DLLs.
OpenGL dlls of NT4.0(above build 1381) and dlls of 95(including OSR2) are not different. You can download updated version from
www.sun.com or www.winfiles.com to update your old version and
things will be done.

Good luck
