Is there an Intel G41 Express Chipset driver update that supports OpenGL on Windows 8.1 x64?

Hello guys,


I have been always using a software of astronomy called Stellarium on Windows 7 x64, without any problem. But now, I installed it on Windows 8.1 x64 and when I try to open it, an error message says: “Your platform does not support the minimum Open GL 1.2 required. Please, update the drivers of your video card.”


As we can see, that's not a hardware problem because I have already used Stellarium in the same pc, but there’s a problem with the driver of my graphics. My video card is the Intel G41 Express Chipset and there’s no update driver of this video card, for Window 8/8.1 in the Intel Download Center. Is this a configuration problem in my system?


I am an amateur astronomer and this is my favourite planetarium simulator, so any help is gonna be very apreciated.


Thanks in advance.
