My slicer software also automatically updadted and after that I get the same message. I ave an almost new Dell PC and Windows says my graphics drivers are all up-to-date.

Can someone explain what this means ..

found finally had to use "C:\Program Files\Prusa3D\PrusaSlicer\prusa-slicer.exe" --sw-renderer for the shortcut

When I start the slicer program it gives the messages and then within a few seconds closes.

On windows when you click on the shortcut its basically telling it to start the program that the shortcut points to.  You modify the target of the shortcut to  add the extra to the shortcut "C:\Program Files\Prusa3D\PrusaSlicer\prusa-slicer.exe" --sw-renderer then whenever you use the shortcut to start PS it will use the software rendering and not the problematic open gl drivers.

Be aware that software rendering is much slower than doing it in graphics hardware, however as your drivers dont work slow is better than not at all.
