Trying to run any of the well-known McKesson's tutorials on a friend's laptop results in the aforementioned exception.
I read that in order to run applications which use OpenGL 3.3 you must at least have an ATI HD or Nvidia 8xxx GPU series. He has an ATI HD class graphics processor which eliminates (maybe) this issue. Also, I read that this error may result in having old drivers. He updated his drivers but that didn't solve the problem.
The tutorials are built as said in the book introduction and glsdk is installed.
If more information is needed, say so and I will provide it.
What are the other reasons for this kind of exception? And how can I fix them?
