Hello William,

The first thing you will need to do in order to resolve that error is to install Photoshop updates. After that, you will need to go and update the video drivers. The best place to update them from is the lintel website. You can also download them and then install them manually.

Regards,

In order to work with Oil Paint in Photoshop you require  a decent GPU.  It may be that your GPU features don’t support by the Oil Paint filter any more. Open your Photoshop—Edit— Preferences—General—Performances—Graphic Processor Setting (GPU)—- check the modes  (basic, normal, advanced)

Download latest Graphic cards driver from the manufactures website. Intel HD Graphics Card  ,Nvidia Graphics​AMD Graphics Card driver  may help you.

You have to install the Photoshop updates — you should be on 13.0.3 or 13.1.1, but not 13.0.0.

When download completes, run the file and then try to restart your computer and open the Photoshop.

Here are various topics discussed on the Oil Paint filter and GPU settings in Photoshop CS6. Hope this may help you to solve your problem.

That error indicates a problem with your graphics adapter driver which may not be compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS6. The requirements for Adobe Photoshop CS6 didn’t mention any specific compatible video cards but it does require your graphics adapter to have at least 512 MB video RAM with OpenGL 2.0 support.

If your video card doesn’t support OpenGL 2.0 or it supports a lower version like in my case my video card only supports OpenGL 1.0, Photoshop CS6 will not function properly. You need to replace your graphics adapter with a new one that supports OpenGL 2.0 or higher. To check the supported OpenGL version of your graphics adapter, download OpenGL Extensions Viewer and unpack with 7-Zip.

Use the supplied password to unpack. Once unpacked, run “glview337.exe” to install the OpenGL viewer utility and then run it once installed to check your current OpenGL version. You may also try updating your video card’s driver to the latest version. If you are using an ASUS video card, go to ASUS Support and download the latest driver.

If you are using an NVIDIA graphics adapter, go to NVIDIA Driver Downloads and download the latest. If you are using an AMD video card like ATI Radeon or FirePro, go to AMD Drivers Support Download and download the latest. If you have a built-in Intel video card, go to Intel Support Drivers and Software.

If you have a Matrox graphics adapter, go to Matrox Driver and Software Download.
