PSA: Latest NVIDIA drivers do not work with LWJGL
« on: January 27, 2017, 20:43:51 »

After updating to the latest NVIDIA drivers, LWJGL stopped detecting OpenGL compatibility. If you're having this issue, make sure you're not running the latest drivers.

Try starting Java with "java.exe" or "javaw.exe" (on Windows) instead of just "java" or "javaw". Explicitly using the '.exe' extension seems to matter for some reason.
