Accessing OpenGL 4.4 functionality inside guest VM


  • Hi,

    As advertised in the technet blog entry called "RemoteFX vGPU Updates in Windows Server Next", I would like to access OpenGL 4.4 functionality inside a VM configured with Hyper-V. 

    My configuration only allows me to access OpenGL 1.1 functionality. However, this should not be the case; my configuration qualifies for all the needed prerequisites.

    The setup I use is the following:

    • Host machine:

    - Windows 10 Enterprise
    - Hyper-V Manager version 10.0.10586.0
    - AMD FirePro W7100 (qualifies for RemoteFX vGPU)
    - WDDM 2.0 capable driver

    • Guest machine:

    - Windows 10 Enterprise
    - RemoteFX 3D Video Adapter: 1G VRAM allocated (max)

    The most disturbing thing is I am able to access OpenCL 1.1 functionality, just like advertised in the above link. I can confirm the actual graphics hardware is being used by the guest OS (using GPU-Z on the host machine). However, the guest OS still does not have access to OpenGL after 1.1.

    Also, the "Display adapters" section of the Device Manager in the guest OS shows "Microsoft RemoteFX GRaphics Device - WDDM" just like it should. 

    At this point, I'm beginning to wonder if it could be a bug in RemoteFX's implementation.

    Can you help me resolve this issue?

    Thanks in advance.
