anatoly techtonik (techtonik) added a comment to T50408: Port EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION fix to 2.76b.

There are two error messages in the console:

Warning! Unable to find a pixel format that supports WGL_SWAP_COPY_ARB. Substituting one that uses
 WGL_SWAP_UNDEFINED_ARB.
WM: failed to allocate texture for triple buffer drawing (texture too large for graphics card).

How can I debug further? I've made

with apitrace.exe trace blender.exe - does it help?

I installed latest https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/81507/Graphics-Drivers-for-Mobile-Intel-4-Series-Express-Chipset-Family which seems more appropriate for my chipset after getting blue screen with the Intel HD drivers.

now shows proper OpenGL version 2.1.0 and User Preferences... -> System doesn't crash anymore.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) maybe tackling this specific PC/OS/GPU may fit broader scope of generic framework for handling GPU problems? New bugs with GPUs, co-processors and standards are constantly evolving, and it may save a lot of time in the long run to share efforts for their identification and workarounds.

@Mike Erwin (merwin) cannot generate system-info.txt - Blender crashes when I choose this menu option.

2.78 doesn't start at all, and 2.76 crashes on System. How come that this is not a bug report? =(

Is it possible to copy the behavior into console?

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) why not let users investigate the issue? While digging deeper they (and me in particular) will gain better understanding how Blender interacts with video card and OpenGL level and may contribute useful stuff in the future.

@Thomas Dinges (dingto) I want to trace it down to specific call or memory issue that makes this Intel GPU out of sync with expected OpenGL behavior. Regal is a pretty awesome library that can emulate some calls without going to full software mode (which is very slow), but I need a way to know what exactly.

Is there any instruction how to debug this? Maybe an OpenGL compatibility tests?

Well, it is convenient to some degree. Roundup and GitHub support this and I suppose Bugzilla too. So, what is the rationale for disabling it?

I don't have another Vista at hand. Is there any diagnostic / testing mode in Blender to get more info during the crash? I mean it is 100% repeatable.
