NVIDIA OpenGL acceleration is disabled in order to maintain system stability.

To resolve this problem, update the Nvidia display driver. The latest driver is available at nvidia.com."

swconfig gives the same error message.

Any help?
Unfortunately, no, because you have the Steam version and they've made changes to the game to make it Vista-compatible (haha) that I can't account for. Sorry, but the best thing that you can do is ask Steam about this.

BTW, swconfig throws the same spiel about my drivers being out of date and failing as well, but KotOR 2 still runs fine. Here's my swinfo for reference:
