I found there is an opengl32sw. dll file under the bin folder. I serched the net and think it is from qt project. But the name is a bit weird. So I trid to rename it to normal opengl32. dll, and Freedcad starts and works.
This has fixed the windows crash on my older PC that has been occurring for a while now. I had tried the environmental variable fix mentioned here,

This new renaming of the openglsw.dll file has worked for me also! JSYK, I still have the environmental variable set. I may remove that and report back with the effect after its deletion, while maintaining the opengl library rename here.
A happier FC user now!
