Direct3D is necessary to launch Hornetdrive.
Besides that you can configure Hornetdrive to render software based only.
In the following article we'll explain how to use Hornetdrive without hardware acceleration or solve problems with OpenGL
Problems could occur with the following GPUs or drivers:
AMD FirePro V5900
Intel GMA 3150
Intel HD Graphics 500 Gen9
Intel HD Graphics 530
Intel HD Graphics 620
Intel HD Graphics 3000
Intel HD Graphics 4000
Intel HD Graphics 5500
Intel HD Graphics Ironlake / Arrandale
Intel Q963 - GMA 3000
Intel Q965 - GMA 3000
Mobile Intel 945GM Express
Es follows you can disable the hardware acceleration for Hornetdrive:
WIN + R > "sysdm.cpl" > Advances > Environmental Variables...Add a new system variable:
1. option (recommended):
Type in the name "QMLSCENE_DEVICE" and the value "softwarecontext" and confirm with OK.
Type in the name "QT_OPENGL" and the value "software" and confirm with OK.
If you're using a IntelHD Graphics GPU please choose the name "QT_DISABLE_SHADER_DISK_CACHE" and "1" as value of the variable.
