Troubleshooting

Most problems with running OpenTK-based Applications are related to the target platform missing the proper drivers.

OpenTK requires these components installed:

  • Either Mono or .Net (not both).
  • An OpenGL driver for your graphics card.
  • The OpenAL driver for your Operating System.

Below are links for your convenience. Note: Many of those sites require Javascript enabled to function.
