  1. Cura running on Virtual Machine

    We have encountered difficulties installing Cura 2.6.2 on a virtual machine. Cura installs, but once we try to open it, an error message pops up that it is unable to access OpenGL libraries, and Cura closes. Our IT person has suggested that because this is a virtual machine, Cura isn't able to access the GPU as it would on a physical machine. We're working on a virtual machine as this creates an image, which is rolled out to the 100+ PCs in our student laboratories. The virtual machine is running Windows 10. Has anyone encountered similar difficulties? Are there possible work arounds, or do we have to run Cura on a physical machine for it to access the GPU?
