Anyone else get have this OpenGL issue?

Got the annoying pop-up to install new version (currently on ver 2.0 build 1324).

Not sure why I never seem to learn when these updates come out but I took a leap of faith and attempted the install. Yep…it failed.

I feel fortunate that it didn’t brick my Core and ended up still staying at the old version mentioned above.

Guess I’ll be looking at that horrible pop-up now for a few months until whatever is wrong gets fixed. I wont be installing this round of updates again.

Also to mention, with every update, after its done I need to login to my headless Core and close the error box about some OpenGL crap that occurs every time.

Anyone else get have this OpenGL issue? Its a simple “fix” but no idea why it always happens. Core is Windows 10 Pro with all latest updates/firmware…etc

Are you using Early Access? Probably not, because 1324 was a production release and not released in Early Access. If using regular production release versions, it is best if you open a new topic in Support and fill in the template that you will see.

I’m probably talking about 1353 (Not sure but it was a new version and failed to install so cant say for sure if it was 1353)

Guess wrong forum…my mistake

1353 is also the production release (early access would be 1354 right now) :slight_smile: You will get better help by Roon support in Support

Description of Issue

Tell us about the problem you’re having in as much detail as possible. Screenshots are always appreciated!

I had the exact same issue, using Roon on my laptop. Was working perfectly fine on my Core machine though.

Thankfully a simple restart of the laptop fixed the problem, maybe try that if you haven’t.

I understand that @Chris_F123 has this on a headless (no graphics screen) server:

@Chris_F123, it is my understanding that OpenGL is only needed by the Roon GUI and the server shouldn’t even try (it has no graphics output anyway, so…). Is the Roon GUI trying to start on the headless machine?

Description of Issue

Clicking the upgrade button within the Roon App to update the Core machine listed above results in an almost immediate failure message attached.

Machine has been rebooted. I attempted the upgrade twice and it failed both times.

The OpenGL issue is not new…for me at least. It occurs after every upgrade of the Roon Core and I suspect its not related to the latest Roon upgrade I am attempting to perform


Also, the Roon Core system I listed above has the full GUI version of Roon Installed (Maybe considered the Desktop version??).

The server has a graphics card installed but I dont recall the make/model offhand. Its not a cheapo one though for what its worth.

I just dont typically use the monitor except when I have to login locally to various library related tasks.

Music library is located on a ix systems FreeNAS Mini FWIW

Have you tried downloading a fresh copy of the latest Roon build from Roon’s download site and installing over your PC’s version? Just ensure you have a fresh backup created from within Roon if you choose this suggestion.

I have not attempted to manually install the update at this point but I did find the following Error in the RoonLog today while I reattempted the update again… which failed as last time.

You can notice at the bottom of the below message chain a failure mentioning::

While installing update: System.Exception: update installer exited with 2
