Crash on Launcher start after update

error popup:

right before today i could open the client on my PC without any issues. did i miss some kind of Devblog telling people about OpenGL changes to the Launcher or something?


5 minutes before the laucher update I had no issues now I get the same. And yes all of the things it asks for in the message are there and everything is updated


I have the same problem.

this problem only with launcher or all game need knew driver?

launcher . Everything was running fine . I even installed old launcher and it started no problem. But its forced to update and you cant cancel it so right back ti it not working again.

I don’t get an error message like that, just a crash!

Found a solution. I downloaded the file opengl32sw.dll and put it in the folder with the launcher (Game/Launcher). Sorry for my English

(X) Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat(version 2.0, options
QFlagsQSurface::FormatOption(), depthBufferSize 24, redBufferSize -1,
greenBufferSize -1, blueBufferSize -1, alphaBufferSize -1, stencilBufferSize 8, samples 0,
swapBehavior QSurfaceFormat::SwapBehavior(DefaultSwapBehavior), swapInterval 1,
colorSpace QSurfaceFormat::ColorSpace(DefaultColorSpace), profile
This is most likely caused by not having the necessary graphics drivers installed.

Install a driver providing OpenGL 2.0 or higher, or, if this is not possible, make sure the
ANGLE Open GL ES 2.0 emulation libraries (libEGL.dll, libGLESv2.dll and d3dcompiler_*.dll)
are available in the application executable’s directory or in a location listed in PATH.

I have this problem today, and not run changing the llibrary, any helping?

Hello i had that problem from 2 weeks and i think i found solution. In my enviromental variables i can’t find a QT_OPENGL in “user variables” and in “system variables” so I just write this and now launcher is working.
Maybe this resolve your problems. “Sorry for my english”
