Vadere uses computer's video card to speed up some computations. Therefore, following OpenCL components should be installed:
* the latest drivers for your OpenCL device(s)
* an OpenCL SDK
* the OpenCL Installable Client Driver loader also called ICD loader (Opencl.dll for Windows and libOpenCL.so for Linux)
* OpenCL Drivers for your device
Both should be offered by the vendor of your device. The device can be a CPU as well as a GPU (recommanded). For example if you have a NVIDIA GPU updating your drivers should be enough to install both components.
Vadere will search for the best device which is supported. On a desktop workstation this should be your video card (GPU).
Please, use following instructions to set up the OpenCL components for your operating system:
