This is a graphics driver error and can be fixed

This is the error:

Process closed with exit code -1073740791

Some googling uncovered that this is a known error caused by a faulty version 378.57 GeForce graphics driver.

According to that close bug report, to fix it before the next full driver is released, you have to install a hotfix for your graphics driver from the video card vendor. This is what the vendor (NVidia) has to say about the hotfix:

This is GeForce Hot Fix driver version 378.57 that addresses the following:

  • Fixed crash in Minecraft and some other Java-based titles
  • Resolved 'Debug Mode' as default option on Pascal based GPUs

This will probably be fixed in the next official GeForce driver, so it's a temporary problem and this fix will not work for future crashes with this error.
