Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat #722
Installed latest version (190228) on non GPU computer. It's Win7 x64, used installer shotcut-win64-190228.exe.
Get error on running. I was under impression this supported software emulation / non GPU?
Installation from this repository has libEGL.dll, libGLESv2.dll, and d3dcompiler_47.dll.
I have many applications that require OpenGL that I am able to run by simply copying a MESA software emulation opengl.dll into the application directory. That does not work with Shotcut. (I copied the MESA opengl32.dll into the Shotcut directory but the error above persists.) I see there is a opengl32sw.dll file in the Shotcut directory, the "sw" implying "software" so I assumed it was similar to MESA.
Is there any way to get this to run?
I do not know why the new version does not work for you except that Qt, which uses OpenGL, was upgraded, and it might be using it in a way that is incompatible. Software OpenGL can be made to work. Find
Please test the beta, which adds Settings > Drawing Method > Software (Mesa).
