I created opengl32.dll as the instruction says (also tried OPENGL32.DLL) in case capital made a difference. When I run it, it gives a message box "seems like SS will run for first time... bla bla", then it tries to go into fullscreen. A few seconds later, it comes back to desktop with a message box "can't set display mode, change to 16 bit bpp... bla bla"
Basically, it can't find a suitable display mode or OpenGL setting.
