Determine if Google Earth will Run in DirectX or OpenGL Mode?

I have found a system that is unable to Render the satellite images when in DirectX mode, but does work fine in OpenGL mode.

Has anybody had to deal with this? Is it possible to script out a check of this, to see if a given system works better with DirectX or OpenGL?

From memory when it installs under 'Start' > 'All Programs' > 'Google Earth' you can choose between DX startup mode and OpenGL? choose whichever one works best and delete the other shortcut?
