# Is this a front-end crash or something else is wrong?

I am evaluating daily multiple notebooks (4) at the same time in order to perform a number of related computations. Been doing this for some time now and never have I encountered what I experienced today.

I am using v.12 as of lately and this is the first time I encounter any kind of problem with the front-end (or any kind of problem whatsoever-I even remember thinking to myself not many days ago that this iteration is really robust and feels more steady than previous versions).

Today, I returned to my station only to find that Mathematica had crashed (the application was closed) and there was a windows notification about an OpenGL error.

I think that the computations were completed because before evaluating the last notebooks in the evaluation queue, the expected output files were already stored on my local drive. I didn't verify their integrity yet, though.

I suspect the crash-if it is related to Mathematica-must have something to do with the displaying of Dataset because the last couple of Notebook's evaluate and display Datasets.

So, essentially, my question is

Has anybody experienced Mathematica v.12 crashing under Windows 8 with the error

"OpenGL “too many errors”"

while evaluating multiple notebooks at the same time or has anybody experienced similar issues when evaluating cells with moderate Datasets in them?

Any help is appreciated.

PS. I did the computations all over again, without adding the last two notebooks in the evaluation queue and all went smoothly this time.

• This seems like a bug and would be worth sending a report to WRI. – Carl Lange May 10 at 18:01
• I'd ensure your graphics drivers are up to date, see if you can minimize the example, and then as Carl suggested, contact tech support. It sounds pretty machine-specific, so they might need to get a bit of diagnostic information from you. – user6014 May 11 at 19:09
