Pablo Dobarro (pablodp606) added a comment to T87499: Windows pen input design.

If the no hacks solution for wintab implies further issues with a minority of devices and drivers, I would go with that. Better having the most commonly used devices working as expected that all the devices half working. Also, with a list of supported devices/drivers at least we can point people at hardware setups that we know they properly work and are supported.
This will also allow us to include other pen based features (like tilt support) in a more predictable way across all platforms.

From what i got from @Antonio Vazquez (antoniov) is that "switching to windows ink for some studio's just is not an option" so I guess we have to support wintab in one form or another

Yes, the problem is really noticeable with brushes with a small size.
From the Grease Point side this issue is one of the most important problem for medium-big 2D animation studios to adopt
GP for the final art in production. Is a recurring feedback report.

Ok - I think I have a better solution. Download the NVIDIA GeForce experience. This allows you to keep both cards running and set up a custom config for Blender. I found that disabling the intel driver caused some other side effects such as reaper didnt work properly.

Oh - this also solved my Matlab problem as well. Sweet! I saw some similar issues with Sketchup and some Adobe products too.

Ok - I found an answer to my issue at least (reference below). I have a Thinkpad P53s and three display adaptors - intel, NVIDA and Dock. I disabled the intel one, and everything works. :)
Maybe give that a try before you re-install windows which is my experience can be a major hassle.

Hi, the only problem I can see in my case is that Windows was preinstalled, but I can't reinstall it for now because I'm in the middle of a project. However I'll do it a.s.a.p. and I'll come back with results...

Hi. I just installed Blender for the first time and I get the same error. The program will run if I disconnect my docking station, but will not run with the docking station connected. I had the same problem with Matlab yesterday and I had to start it with the -noopengl. I don't know what that means, but i see a fairly common and repeatable error across multiple forums. All answers in all forums suggest graphics driver update but like previous reports, my drivers are up-todate.

@Ray molenkamp (LazyDodo) - I probably could have done without the moving of MONITOR_DPI_TYPE and just used 0 as argument to GetDpiForMonitor(), rather than MDT_EFFECTIVE_DPI.

Blender 2.92 quits after I bake around 200 frames at a domain resolution over 90, it doesn't happen if I stick to 90 or below this is with any domain i try even the quick smoke object from the default start-up cube. It was fine over 300 resolution in the previous Blender versions.

The problem seems to occur in ntdll.dll.
It's rare for ntdll.dll to get corrupted and only cause issues for a few applications, but it's worth a shake, you can test this without having to reinstall windows by using the sfc command .
