opengl32.dll Error Information

What is a DLL?

DDL (Dynamic Link Library) files contain computer code and resources that can be used by several programs at the same time.  This uses less system memory making your system more efficient. DLL files allow program developers to reuse code in multiple programs to add features and make modifications without writing new code for each one.

Many programs require DLL files to function properly so when one is damaged or missing it causes program crashes and poor system performance.

What is opengl32.dll?

Opengl32.dll is connected to the core OpenGL funtions which is used for rendering 3D (Three Dimensional) graphics. OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a cross language multi-platform API (Application Programming Interface) used for rendering 2D (two dimensional) and 3D vector graphics. This API is generally used to interact with the GPU (Graphics Processor Unit) to create hardware-accelerated graphics.

OpenGL uses an abstract API for drawing 2D and 3D graphics and is widely used in CAD, virtual reality, flight simulators, and video game programs. Video games outsource real-time rendering calculations to the GPU thru OpenGL however the rendered results are not sent back, they are instead stored in a frame buffer then sent to the display controller. While it is possible to apply the API completely in software it is designed to be applied almost completely in hardware.
