I have a GeForce2 MX200 pci as a second video card. When I move one particular application window to the second monitor I get the following error:
"nVidia OpenGL Driver
Driver components mis-match. Exit is the only option".
Its a java application. Can anyone help?

What primary card do you have?
I have similiar problems with my following config:
Secondary card: GeForce 2 Ti (latest Detonator drivers)
Primary card: an obsolete PCI S3 Trio 64
WinXP Pro

Under XP (and under Win 2000), everytime I want to use any OpenGL application (and games as Q3A or so), I first have to deactivate my S3 card in the control panel. I guess that's a problem with the consumer detonator drivers, as Direct3D apps work without problems.
I don't have that problem in Windows 9x or Linux.

BTW: I had to make the S3 the primary card because Windoze XP wouldnt be able to initialize the pci card with my agp card as primary.

Yes , you must do that unless the application do not call win api to get the screen resolution and stuff , if it does that , uŽll probably get a driver error http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif

I had similar problems. After endless fiddling I rolled the driver back from the current version 4.0.7.2 back to 2.9.5.8 (which I beleive came with XP). This seems to fix it.

Weird but true.

I had odd problems with Java AWT displays. Notably with JBuilder 7.
