  • Hi bartekordek,

    What's the "freeglut" application?

    Please create a new project and run it to check whether this issue just occurs when run this freegult application or all application?

    If just this freehult application, I'm afraid that there has something incompatible with the updated NIVIDIA drivers. Please create a new freehult application and then move the original project files to the new project one by one, which can help us make sure which file causes this issue.

    If all projects has this issue, please try with following steps to troubleshoot this issue.

    1. Run Visual Studio in safe mode to prevents all third-party VSPackages from loading when Visual Studio starts, thus ensuring stable execution.
    2. Reset all settings for your Visual Studio.
    3. Repair your Visual Studio to check whether the Visual Studio installation is broken when upgrade the NIVIDIA drivers.
