The Intel graphic driver filtering does not take into account the release of future version of Windows NT.
It means that on Windows NT 6.2 or 7.0, HW acceleration will be disabled whatever the Intel graphic driver version.
The Intel driver filtering for any OS that is higher than 6.1 must be done with the same value as in Windows 7.
I don't agree! What it means is that we don't do any driver version checks on windows version > 6.1

By default a feature is allowed. The blocklist code goes through all known bad cases and when one matches, the feature is disabled. Since the driver version blacklist is about windows versions <= 6.1, they won't match on future windows versions.

As Windows 2003 is very similar to Windows XP for graphic features, add to Windows 2003 Intel driver version D2D/DW/D3D filtering of Windows XP.
The same for the filtering on Windows NT higher than 6.1 wrt Windows 7 filtering.
Summary: Enable support for D2D, DW, D3D layers on Windows NT version higher than 6.1 → Add Intel driver version filtering for D2D, DW, D3D layers on Windows 2003 and Windows NT version higher than 6.1
