gui doesn't work in new version

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.

I had previously installed this version and the gui interface worked.

I uninstalled the above and installed this version but the gui interface does not work.

While searching the forum for an answer, I found this thread:
       in the thread Marius wrote, "I suspect that your GPU drivers are old"

I tried updating my video drivers, but I still don't see the gui (btw, I use USB->video adapters)

I don't know how to use the "Windows Event Log" as Marius suggested in that thread

results of "openscad --info" as as follows

Re: gui doesn't work in new version

What specifically do you mean by "does not work" ?
Any errors? does it just quit? does it crash?

For the Event Log, see e.g.

Could you try without using an USB-display adapter, to see if that causes the problem?
