This is normally a driver related issue. What video card are you using? & Are you using the latest drivers?

Sorry, i'm getting a completely different error.

As far as I can tell, the Intel Mobile chipset isn't the best @ rendering OpenGL

Yeah, i've even just download the latest GFX driver from Intel (it's older but has the full GFX media accellerator app). I even downloaded Visual C++ express + runtime (148MB) and still nothing
