    Default Qt application is completely white


    There is a user of my software that has reported that when he executes the software it is completely white, however, some widgets are still doing things, like showing menus.

    This GIF image shows the issue:

    My software uses the Qt5::OpenGL, so I compiled and sent him all the OpenGL examples (hellogl2, hellogles3, cube, etc), and most of these application have the same problem:

    I tested out the programs and here are the results:
    2dpainting.exe - All white
    contextinfo.exe - All renders fine I guess, with the exception of both windows on the right that are all white
    cube.exe - All white
    hellogl2.exe - All white
    hellogles3.exe - Does not start, crashes upon trying to execute
    hellowindow.exe - All white
    paintedwindow.exe - All white
    qopenglwidget.exe - All white
    qopenglwindow.exe - All white, and crashes after around a second
    textures.exe - All white
    threadedqopenglwidget.exe - All white, and crashes after around a second too
    These are his specs:
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310M CPU @ 2.10GHz
    Video Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
    RAM: 4.0 GB
    OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit

    Is this a known issue? Or has anybody experienced this issue? Is there a way to fix this?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Default Re: Qt application is completely white

    The level of OpenGL support on your user's machine is probably not as high as you are using in your app, therefore the driver can't display any OpenGL.

    There are OpenGL methods to test for and return information on the level of GL support on the machine where the program is running (see this stackoverflow post).
