One thought on “FIX: Can’t find the name of Intel ICD OpenGL driver”

  1. When I run Xrumer with XEvil Google re-captcha solver in conjunction with the Search Engine Scraper and E-Mail Extractor by Creative Bear Tech, an infinite number of “opengl es error can’t find the intel graphics” error pop ups invade my screen. I have tried almost all solutions: Dell Support, Operating System reinstall, driver re-install, I have updated the Intel Graphics driver manually via the device manager and have followed all the hacks on specialist blogs. Nothing seems to have solved the problem. I have contacted the XEvil captcha solver’s developer and even he could not offer a solution. Any help would be very much appreciated. I only get this error when I specifically run XEvil.
