[IDV #GCG-178299]: problem running IDV on Windows 7 using Xming and SecureCRT

> When running idv3.1 on a linux machine, we get the following error:
> Xlib:  extension "NV-GLX" missing on display "localhost:10.0".
> Xlib:  extension "NV-GLX" missing on display "localhost:10.0".
> Java 3D ERROR : glXMakeCurrent fails
> Xlib:  extension "NV-GLX" missing on display "localhost:10.0".
> Canvas3D_createNewContext: couldn't make current
> DefaultRenderingErrorListener.errorOccurred:
> CONTEXT_CREATION_ERROR: Renderer: Error creating Canvas3D graphics context
> graphicsDevice = X11GraphicsDevice[screen=0]
> canvas = visad.java3d.VisADCanvasJ3D[canvas0,0,0,592x462]
> [1]+  Exit 1                  /opt/IDV3.1/IDV_3.0u1/runIDV
> The linux machine is being accessed from a Windows 7 platform running Xming
> and SecureCRT.
> The various software information is as follows
> LINUX platform: 2.6.18-308.13.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Aug 21 17:10:18 EDT 2012
> x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
> Xming, version
> SecureCRT 6.7.4
> The error also shows up using Cygwin on a different windows 7 machine but
> the software still remains open whereas on the first box, it closes.
> I suspect that there is a setting in Xming (or SecureCRT) that is causing
> this error since other software requiring X windows works fine (e.g.
> GEMPAK, xclock, etc.)
> Any guidance would be appreciated.
> Thanks.

     Running IDV on a remote machine is always problematic. There are many 
issues related to display setting and the network connection. We don't have 
better suggestion at this moment. Sorry about this.
