OpenGL broken on Windows 10 1607 - Intel Graphics 530


Applications that try to create an OpenGL graphics context, crash inside the Intel graphics driver.

System information:

- Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6500TE CPU @ 2.30GHz, 2304 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

- Intel Graphics 530

- Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB (1607)

- Intel driver (this is what we get through Windows Update)


To reproduce, download and run an application that uses OpenGL. For example:

- Download and run OpenGL extensions viewer (


- Download and unzip OpenSceneGraph ( 

- Download an example data file: save as OpenSceneGraph-3.6.4-VC2017-64-Debug\bin\cow.osg

- Inside the OpenSceneGraph-3.6.4-VC2017-64-Debug\bin folder, execute this command: osgviewerd.exe cow.osg

Workaround: downgrade to driver version, and it works as expected. This is not a good solution as Windows Update installs the newer (broken) driver automatically.
