Finally fixed! Node-Webkit WebGL issue on Win7/8 laptops

Lots of laptops have dual GPUs: often a weak low-power Intel HD graphics chip for use on battery, and a higher-power gaming type card like an AMD or nVidia desktop class card. I think by default you always get the low-power GPU unless you specifically change it e.g. in the nVidia control panel. I'd guess an external monitor socket would be driven by the more powerful GPU, so connecting an external monitor might also have the effect of switching to the more powerful GPU as well.

@Ashley, are those DLL files included in "DirectX 9.0c (Jun 10)"? Because when you make a Steam game you can choose from common redistributables to include with the game's installer and one of them is "Direct X June 2010".

@alspal - I'm not sure - I think you should choose whichever the latest DirectX redistributable is, AFAIK the newer ones also include all the older ones too (they're cumulative).
