You can add the command

to your octaverc file so that it is always executed when starting octave. That is much more convenient than having to add the command to every m-file you write.

Almost certainly some combination of operating system, OpenGL SW drivers, and video hardware.

Does using a non-GL toolkit work?

If I go to Debug in Visual Studio, this is the part of the call stack that caused the exception:

> nvoglv64.dll!000000001ed9eb42() Unknown

x = 1:50;
y = x.^2;
plot(x,y)

% or any instance of the use of plot()
% Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit
% also happened to me in 4.2.0 which prompted install of 4.2.1
