Looks like after applying the May 14th firmware upgrade to my W8 Surface Pro Mission Planner is crashing. I ended up doing a system rollback before May 14th then upgraded with other updates EXCLUDING the firmware upgrade and things are fine.  When I Google the error in the logs the best thing that I could find was something about OpenGL and the Video Drivers. I'm attaching the log file in hopes that maybe some of the Dev's can check it out and lend a helping hand. 

If anyone else is running a Surface Pro for their GS, you might want to skip May's Firmware!

  • New Surface Pro.

    33 updates, including .net framework 4.5

    Mission planner 1.2.61 will not install. Error message 'need to install .net framework 3.5', which would not install because 4.5 is installed.

    3 weeks ago, Acer W3 also from MS store (same setup) loaded and ran the MP fine.


    This morning, back to my trusty Dell Win 7 with MP 1.2.59 which has been running flawlessly, stopped recognizing the com port. This happened just after loading the latest MS critical update. Rolled back the win 7 update and back in business.


    We may be seeing more than one problem here: Intel graphics, .net 4.5 comparability, ...

    I guess 3DRobotics, which has the most invested in the MP software has to take the lead.


  • Just a FYI. Looks like Mission Planner was loading with the latest windows updates. Problem became when I tried to open files or save files. Mission planner would hang until you kill it. This driver fixes it:


  • I installed the latest Intel HD Graphics 4000 display drivers ( - problem solved :-)

  • Hi Scott,

    I have the same problem on my Surface Pro.

    MissionPlanner and QGroundControl crash at startup.
