Description of Issue

I just subscribed to Roon and the execution on Windows 10 doesn’t work ( This application can’t run on your PC !!). Any update on this topic ?

When the Surface Pro X was introduced, the x86 emulation on this ARM processor only supported OpenGL graphics up to version 1.1.

The Roon UI requires OpenGL version 3 support.

Unless Microsoft has managed to improve the emulation to support version 3.0 of OpenGL, then the Roon UI will not work on this device.

I suspect that Microsoft has not improved the emulation.


Hi @yves_froppier

Geoff is correct — Roon requires OpenGL 3.0 to work properly, and since this isn’t supported by the Surface Pro X, this will not work with Roon. Apologies for the inconvenience!
