If you obtained your drivers from Microsoft, they don't come with OpenCL. If you download them from nVidia, you'll get both CUDA and OpenCL along with the drivers that produce images on you screen.

On windows perhaps.
On Linux I still need to download extra drivers aside from the NVidia drivers, just to get fah to work.
(apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev).
I think for Linux, this command should be incorporated into the client's Deb file.

Treating OpenCL runtime code as a dependency isn't a bad idea -- whether in Windows or Linux or OSX --- but it would probably introduce additional support to keep track of the exceptions --- like ignoring OpenCL if it's from Intel or if it's from Apple which are not supported -- but accepting OpenCL from a variety of valid sources. The absence/presence of OpenCL is checked at run-time and a message appears in FAH's runtime log.
