Program just shuts off about 30 seconds after pressing "lets go"

Program worked fine yesterday. When I opened today I was asked to allow update to download (say yes like always)… Once I got the window with “let’s ride” tab and press it the program shuts down after about 30 seconds.

I uninstalled and then reinstalled. Still the same problem and program just shuts down.

I got the same issue. It was very annoying. Before upgrading, everything was going okay. I sent email to Zwift already.

[14:47:30] GLFW ERROR 65542: WGL: The driver does not appear to support OpenGL

I am just wondering why the driver does not appear to support OpenGL? I am using the same laptop and do nothing on it. Can anyone help us?

Same thing happened to me. I contacted Zwift support and was told my graphics card (Intel HD3000) is below specs, though I’ve been able to run Zwift just fine since it launched. They did offer the following suggestions, which has worked:

Go into prefs.xml found in Documents/Zwift folder

Open with TextEdit

Find the < CONFIG > section and right underneath config, add < PERF >67108864< /PERF >

Save/close file

Open Zwift

The Intel HD3000 has been below minimum specs to run Zwift for a long time. Most, if not all the loading issues after the latest update of Zwift have been due to below minimum specs of the video card.

was it
< config >

I was having the same issue on my laptop but have resolved it by going to Intel’s website and updating my graphics driver.
