    I'm assuming you're using a Remote Desktop? I ran into this problem too, the problem is with Amazon. The software uses QTWebEngine to work with Amazon, and that requires OpenGL, and that freaks out with Remote Desktop. If your server has a GPU, one thing you can do is install the drivers for the GPU, and then open gpedit.msc. In the tree menu on the left, navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Remote Session Environment, and open the Remote Session Environment folder (not the subfolder within it). Then finally enable 'Use hardware graphics adapters for all Remote Desktop Services', and restart the Server. I found this to work for me.

    Thank you for that. I'm also unable to run it in RDP, and since downloading at the recommended 1x takes a long time, I thought it would convenient to remote into my PC from my laptop while watching TV, but no luck. I had the same experience as the OP where it's running invisibly in the background and I'm unable to get to it even with alt+tab.

    That may be a Qt version problem too. QtWebEngine is not just a single version library.

    It's quite hard to find a solution not having a log file.

    The problem appears to be related exactly to OpenGL (as Kai Cheeda said)

    Who knows. Now that they have a logfile, they can determine how to fix the problem, if it's even possible to it themselves. As Prospere said, it's a problem in OpenGL. That's not something they develop. That is a third party engine.

    Unfortunately, AnyStream has no control over this. OpenGL is a part of Qt library.
    Have you actually tried Kai Cheeda's suggestion?

    When you say virtual machine, is it still over RDP? Or do you mean that you can't run trial version on VM?

    AnyStream is designed to work on a private "home" PC.

    I'm using Windows Server 2019 Standard, Verion 1809 Build 17763.1490. Anystream works just fine on this machine with Amazon. I don't use Netflix, so I can't say anything about that.
