I tried to use the Windows 7 version of Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver (which has blue and white control panel window color) on Windows Vista Extended Kernel with NTOSKRNL Emu_Extender and some modifications. I have successfully installed it through the Device Manager driver update. And it turns out that it has worked partially. OpenGL and DX11 work perfectly without glitches, also the driver has no problem at all in Device Manager, but DX9 causes BEX64-related crashes. And until now I still cannot enjoy the Aero theme, screen savers, play videos using Windows Media Player, and some apps or games that require D3D9 won't run (because they need DX9 to work properly). The control panel itself also won't open (BEX64 crashing) unless I renamed or moved out the igdumdim64.dll file from the System32 folder and the igdumdim32.dll file from the SysWOW64 folder.
And when I am trying to show the information center page from the Options and Support menu, the control panel crashes with code 0xc0000096 (STATUS_PRIVILEGED_INSTRUCTION)
Note: I hate the Intel HD Graphics 4000 version which the Control Panel UI looks like the following picture, even though this version fully supports at least Windows XP:
- scaling_new.jpg (52.86 KiB) Viewed 765 times
- Doesn't support apps or games that require newer OpenGL versions, even if Windows Vista is still supported (maybe they only need graphic cards that support both Windows Vista and newer OpenGL versions)
- Garbage FPS on all PS2 games in PCSX2, and even in BIOS (approx 40 - 50 FPS), even with lowest settings and some speedhacks, high performance plan in power options, and if the CPU usage, EE, GS, and VU percentages are very low. It's very unplayable, and all I have to do is only use the Windows 7 version of Intel HD 4000 driver to enjoy back the full speed
- Terrible graphics in Windows 7 with Aero theme, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 VM in VirtualBox after installing Guest Additions, making them unoperable at all, and even worser, cause serious vision health problems such as headache, eyestrain, and even epilepsy!!!
