I stumbled over a quite strange behaivour these days. Yesterday I noticed, that I could not start any Java3D project from within eclipse anymore; neither my software to visualize 3D medical data, nor a surface editor, nor a simple test program. What was even more odd: the programs did not crash, they just ended, when the first line of java3D code occured. As a minimal example:
and then ended without any error. After trying around for almost 24h now, it turned out that it was caused by the latest Nvidia Driver 378.49. When I noticed that all programs ended with exit code -1073807364, I could google it to here and here. There is already a hotfix driver that solved it for me.
Just wanted to share this with you in case you have the same issues ... might save you some time.
