I have a problem with Intel UHD GMA Windows driver crashing that leads to Matlab hanged dead and not even moving out of RAM.
The GPU driver crash is usually created by Paravie software. It is an old known Paraview feature, but still it is too valuable to stop using it.
Most programs, like Office, Octave, notepads, Adobe-PDF recover with variable success after such event. Not Matlab.
So I guess, it is related to how it handles OpenGL.
The question is how can I force sofware only rendering in Matlab, to completely avoid direct interaction with GPU/OpenGL/DX drivers?
If no, is there other way to withstand such events?

You can start MATLAB with the "-softwareopengl" option, as documented here

Thank you very much! Will try it next time with Paraview (it did not crash again yet to test)
