Cannot start MITK on a Windows remote desktop
Open, NormalPublic


I just had a shared-screen session with a user from DKFZ. It was about another topic but he quickly wanted to show me something using MITK but he said he can't do it remotely, because the MITK workbench wouldn't work.

The error in the log was the following:

composeAndFlush: makeCurrent() failed

He was using a 2019 eMITK version.
