With 1.15.0.2 32-bit/64-bit, if I do:
$ export DISPLAY=myhost:0
$ export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1
$ glxinfo | grep 'OpenGL.*string'
OpenGL vendor string: Microsoft Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GDI Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.1.0

I get incorrect information. Same with 1.14.4, 1.14.5, 1.15.0 32-bit/64-bit.

With 1.14.3 32-bit/64-bit, I get:
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTS 250/PCIe/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (3.3.0)

The last working version seems to be 1.14.3.
I am running using: vcxsrv.exe :0 -ac -terminate -lesspointer -multiwindow -clipboard -wgl

    Note that if I run glewinfo it shows the same info for both 1.14.3 and 1.15.0.2:
    Running on a GeForce GTS 250/PCIe/SSE2 from NVIDIA Corporation
    OpenGL version 1.4 (3.3.0) is supported

    I am not able to reproduce this.
    I only get the GDI generic when I use the -swrastwgl option instead of the -wgl option.
    Could you run the debug version and attach the generated log file.
