I have pasted the error lines for you. Is there a version without GUI that I can run, if there is no fix available for this?
I am using remote dekstop to connect to the machine that is running Roon Server. @dylan - I had been running Roon on the same Win 10 machine for 2 + years. It stopped working only after the latest windows update. I am guessing it supports Open GL but if you provide me with the instructions to check it, I can.
I did not know that remote desktop applications have issues with Roon till now. The Roon machine is tucked into a media closet and I access that from my laptop which is running Win 10. I have installed Roon Server only on the Core machine now. There was a reason for why I needed Roon with UI on that Core machine but long story short, my challenge is that some thing that works, all of a sudden,stops working after a Windows update.
Thanks for the explanation. I think I understand now, you where using a Remote desktop just to start Roon on that machine. Then once up and running you used your laptop running Roon Remote to control it.
It does sound like running Roon server is the best option for your now as you can get it auto startup.
Roon won’t start anymore when I double click the icon in a remote desktop session. The process starts (I see it in the list in task manager) but never initializes the GUI. I can seemingly start it as many times as I want, another instance of roon.exe shows up in the task list. If I physically go to the machine and turn on the monitor and double click roon from the USB keyboard and mouse physically attached to it, then it’ll start.
However now Roon quits unexpectedly if it’s running and I open a RDP session. And as above, it won’t restart in RDP.
This is pretty frustrating, I don’t like having to physically be next to the machine to start Roon.
You realize that’s a pretty crappy workaround right? Microsoft Remote Desktop is an excellent piece of software. I use this Windows box for other stuff besides Roon (all via RDP), because I can have an arbitrary and changeable desktop resolution.
The TV that the PC is physically attached to is old and has only 720P resolution. When I use VNC or something like what you suggest, the remote session was the same resolution as the TV, which is too small to do anything useful. Also Roon won’t even show its menus even when run in full screen mode on 720p display.
Even if I had a higher resolution TV, I’d still want to set the RDP desktop size to whatever’s convenient for the monitor I’m using.
