The crash happened outside the Java Virtual Machine in native code.

See problematic frame for where to report the bug.

loadComputeShaderExtensions failed
Could not run the sketch (Target VM failed to initialize).
For more information, read revisions.txt and Help ? Troubleshooting.

Some function for compute shaders is not being found, but I get no error with Java 17.0.8 so the first thing to do is update the Java runtime. It’s important to remove older versions before installing the latest one.

Please try that first and let me know the result. It appears that the Processing Library Contribution Manager has not picked up the latest release so I will look into that.

Did the error still occur after updating the Java runtime ?

A maintenance release which does not include the compute shader functions is now available in the Library Manager.
