Can't play Amnesia in Windows 7

Solved: 6 Years, 11 Months ago Can't play Amnesia in Windows 7
Hello! I'm having a problem with Amnesia recognizing my video card. When I start the launcher for Amnesia in Ubuntu 14.04, it has no problem recognizing my video card, but Windows 7 simply gives me a message stating "something is wroooong" and cannot detect my video card. If it's any help, I have a Radeon HD 4670 card.

Here's the log from Windows 7:

I should also mention that upon trying to update my drivers, I could no longer use my preferred graphics card, but rather could only use my integrated graphics card; however, that problem was just limited to Windows 7.

Install the latest driver version 14.9. Choose the "Express Installation".
Amnesia should detect your dedicated graphics card, not the integrated one.

The last time I tried to update my driver, I couldn't use my dedicated graphics card. Moreover, I don't see a 14.9 version available. Did you mean "13.9"?

There is a 14.9, but it seems that the 4000 series is part of their support package for older graphic cards, so the latest is 13.9. You need to get that driver installed as the hpl log says you do not have a opengl capable driver installed (which means you have not installed a driver downloaded from amd.com).
