    Windows RDP doesn't support OpenGL. You could try something like VNC or Splashtop, which have better support. Alternatively I've heard if you start an OpenGL application on the host before connecting to it by RDP, it generally works, so you could try launching the Android Player device first, then connecting RDP.

    Thanks @Will_Schaller - starting the player first and then connecting with RDP did the trick for me. Wouldn't work otherwise... :smile:

    @Will_Schaller Splashtop looks very promising! thanks.
