Problem using QWebEngine on virtual machine
I've installed MSVC2015 64bit on a new 64bit Win10 Virtual Machine, along with Qt 5.8
I compiled and ran the built in WebEngine Demo Browser example.
I then used WinDeployQt to package the demo. I ran it on my Win10 VM (outside of Qt Creator environment) and still, no web-pages would render or perform properly.
If I then take that same deployed build to a non-virtual Win10 machine, it seems to work properly.
Is there some issue with running QtWebEngine inside a Win10 virtual machine? If so, is there a workaround? I do all my development on virtual machines, and this issue is making it impossible to do so.
Thanks for any insights
I received an answer from Qt support, it solved the problem. Their answer below:
On a virtual machine the OpenGL support might not be enough for rendering Qt WebEngine, so the quickest way to check if this is the case here is to do:
on the command line or add:
before the creation of the application object
