i cant find the 3d (directx accelerator) driver for this (ATI Rage 3D IIC AGP) card for win2k...

versiontracker;
http://www.versiontr...einfo/win/42915

looked like it had something promising but the link it points me to on ATIs site;
https://support.ati....amp;folderID=27

basically said 'not found' ...


is it not possible to get DX 3d accel (and/or even better... OpenGL) for this card in win2k?



ive also looked through the driver section of atis site... it only has win98 drivers (that arent compatible with 2k) for this card...

help? :)


PS yes ive googled... its not been my friend...

If drivers aren't present on ATI's site for a certain version of Windows, it generally means that that version of Windows will know what to do with the card automatically but it doesn't mean all features will be available.

You may need to upgrade DirectX on the Win2k machine.

This is more likely down to the age of the card than anything else. This is a very old card.
