OpenGL 2.0 (or above) support?

Postby Pydude » 24. Feb 2018, 22:56


just found out VirtualBox is supporting only OpenGL 1.1 on Windows 10 VM (x64 1709). Host: VirtualBox v5.2.6 + Extension Pack on Windows 10 (x64 1709).

Do you know if there will be supported drivers for the OpenGL 2.0 (or above) on some day - near future?

Appreciate any advice on this issue.

No clue. The developers have hinted to a new graphics sub-system, but nothing specific feature-wise. Don't even think of asking about a date...

Please see previous discussion of the OpenGL issue here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=82614#p398391.

Also, this subject matter is not relevant to the "Windows Hosts" forum. Moving topic to "Windows Guests".
