Not sure how you can have 2 CPUs. The Intel Core i3-4340 should support OpenGL 3.3. Try updating the GPU driver for it.

thanks, but how do i do that?

You can get the drivers from here.

it says my pc don´t have de requirements to instal the software

So what CPU do you have? The driver should work if you have the i3-4340. It won’t work if you use the FX-6300.

My CPU is the i3-4340

Odd, maybe try this one, or use intel’s driver update utility.

tried the link you sent me, same error. Now i´m going to try the intel’s driver update utility

the intel’s driver update utility says my cpu is the i3-2130

Ah, well then you’re out of luck. 2nd generation Intel integrated graphics do not support Citra’s minimum requirements.

alright then, thanks

Processor Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 370 @ 2.40GHz, 2394 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
will this cpu support open gl 3.3 @BreadFish64

No. That’s even older than OP’s processor

What about Intel® Q45/Q43 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1)
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E8500 @ 3.16GHz 3.17 Ghz

No, that’s even older than the person earlier

Well the rip me guess im not playiing ultra sun on PC then

Would the Intel® Core™ i5-2450M CPU @ 2.50GHz work
@Leo121 @BreadFish64

Not without a dedicated GPU

Will it work with:
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.4GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
