Windows 8\8.1 OpenGL 2.0 not Working..How to fix installer Embedded?

Dear user, I have an old Intel GMA 500 working with Driver Embedded (1.18) IEMGD 8.14.1180.3398.

Actually I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro Preview and there is this boring issue: OpenGL 2.0 (included in the installer) isn't used by OS

I read a lot of websites around this problem but no solution is working for me.

Solutions available:

-Update driver (Intel GMA 500 Official Driver ended in early 2010; there isn't newer IEMGD last April 2013)

-Install in compatible mode: Tested Win8-7-Vista SP2-XP sp3

-Install manually from Device Manager

-Edit Driver Installer INI file adding line for Win 6.2 and Win 6.3

-Check if Opengl is correctly installed (yes is in C:\windows\system32 and is registered in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000 )  [ in my case idogl32.dll by Intel]

From What i read is a stupid Installer problem but is "unbelievable" that INTEL doesn't FIX for older Graphic Driver working under Win7 and working under Win8.1 with compatibility mode!

PLEASE HELP ME!
