No, this is just problems with your video card driver.
Adobe cannot fix your video card driver.
Please contact NVidia and ask why their latest driver disabled OpenCL (sorry, mistyped OpenGL at first).
A more comprehensive response would be appreciated Chris, I see from the board you've had and replied to the same issue, but a search doesn't return any solutions or reasons.
If it really is nVidia's fault, why would it work on the 64 bit version of PS and not the 32 bit version?
This has happened before in CS5 remember and Adobe eventually resolved it with an update.
The solution seems to be some kind of "in company" thing. I'm just an end user who'd like to see it working for faster results from my filters, not a "tecky".
OK... well I've logged as support question with nvidia: REF: 130224-000006 as requested.
Thanks anyway Chris.
Just realised. I was talking about OPEN "CL" .... not OpenGL.
Are you sure you read me right m8?

Adobe only uses OpenCL in the 64 bit variant, no matter what the video card. It's a design decision.
GPU programming is done through shaders in the 32 bit variant.
What functionality do you perceive you're missing?
yeah, I just mistyped it.
I thought it might have a significant impact on the speed (in particular - from what I have read) of the standard Adobe filters (various blurs) on large images / and possibly the UI. Considering it could never be enabled, it's a little misleading that the option on the x86 version is even apparent (even though greyed out) don't you think? Terribly confusing.
Anyway... so that's that. Thank you for clearing that up Noel. Thank you also Chris.
