Hello

On my old PC (Windows 7 SP1, openGL 2.1.0) I was not able to successfully start WL. There is always crash, gdb in MSYS2 can't generate useful backtrace. I made debug build from latest sources and with log messages tracked down the source:

src/graphic/texture.cc
    GlFramebuffer() {
        // Generate the framebuffer for Offscreen rendering.
        glGenFramebuffers(1, &gl_framebuffer_id_);
    }

Should I report the bug or is it because of old openGL version? In this case, you should update Download page: Widelands requires a graphics card that can handle OpenGL version 2.1 or higher.

Hard to say without any log or gdb backtrace what is the reason. We can't reproduce this as I beleive nop one is still operating a windows 7.
So unless you could provide the full log, thewre is a big chance that nobody can do anything about it.
