In my VPS I want to run the Kivy (Python) using RDP, where the min requirement for OPENGL is 2.0 but I think the as I am from RDP it is using RDP driver, so how to upgrade the environment to run Kivy by ROP. Please give your valuable inputs.

    Hi,
    I consider that this is default behavior and limitation to Microsoft Remote Desktop.

    This is due to how RDP works. It creates a virtualized desktop version of the host machine that only uses software OpenGL which doesn't use the same extensions required when running in hardware mode.
    Please refer to the information below:
    “Remote Desktop (RDP) does not support OpenGL on client machines higher than 1.1.”
    there are some thread for your reference.

    OpenGL and Windows Remote don't play along nicely.

    So I consider that maybe switching to a remote software might be an option.
    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
    Best Regards,
