blender error message

Is there a chance of fixing this? (the autodesk maya was working fine and I want to try this program, could someone help me with this?)

  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried the "regular" version of Blender? Steam does nasty things sometimes, so I'd suggest you try to download the zipped version from blender.org, extract that to your desktop and post the results. $\endgroup$ May 4, 2016 at 3:23

I reported this as a bug (I actually asked the same question Warning! Legacy WGL is unable to select between different OpenGL versions) and this is what the blender developer site said:

"Your GPU is too old. You may be able to still use it if you update your drivers."

The bug report is available here.
