Run Celestia 1.7.0 on Windows (OpenGL error)

Post #1by Alexell » 14.06.2018, 16:36

Hi all.

As you know, I recently published new Celestia binary files (x86 & x64) along with the necessary dlls. They run perfectly and work on my computer with QT installed.

But when running on a computer where there is no installed QT, Celestia produces an error:

All the necessary dlls were added to the Celestia folder (platforms folder with dll) and the following dlls:

Maybe I missed something?

The error comes from /src/celestia/qt/qtappwin.cpp ~Line 260

It is a response to a failed initialization of the glew subsystem.

Most likely resulting from a missing glew32.dll or equivalent.

At least it is a place to start.

With my projects I added the following dll from qt/msvc/bin folder:

Code: Select all

d3dcompiler_47.dll
libEGL.dll
libGLESv2.dll
opengl32sw.dll

1st one is for angle
2nd and 3rd for openGL ES (embedded systems) - Raspberry pi and other?
4th software rendering if hardware has no openGL or to old OpenGL

see https://wiki.qt.io/Qt_5_on_Windows_ANGLE_and_OpenGL
