Minecraft Shaders insta-crashes on Windows 8.1 on 3496 and beta 3574 , works fine on 126.96.36.19990 or with glitches on Ubuntu 14.04.
Laptop Specs :
Intel Core i3-3227u, Intel HD 4000.
Shaderpack used http://sonicether.com/shaders/download/v10.1Preview2/ , Not just that shaderpack. every shaderpack I've tried on the internet crashes the game instantly.
