Woah, I found the file you were talking about and removed it. Everything seems to be running fine now. I have no idea how that file was in there if it was not supposed to be.

I don't believe so, I've been having this problem since I first download blender yesterday, I'll check if I can find that file.

Looks like you're running on mesa? did you by any chance drop a opengl32.dll in your blender folder?

Alright, I've attached the file and I will look at the information displayed from the debugging, thank you.

Let's see what graphics card blender is using on your computer.
In the Help tab click on Save System Info and then share the file generated here. (Maybe that gives some clue of what's going on).
Another thing that would help investigate would be by opening blender from the Command Prompt adding the arguments --debug-gpu. The prompt will display some information that may be useful.

This occurs with a standard cube (about 2-5 fps). If I load in a character model it gets even worse( below 1 fps)

Is this with the standard cube or with a very large scene?

Andreas Lutsch (andreasus) added a comment to T53596: Keyboard Language Mapping on [User Preference > Input > search term].

I also encountered this problem. My mechanical keyboard has some broken switches and I made a new windows keyboard layout for german and replaced the letter "Ö" with "L", as "L" and I didn't need "Ö".

Bruno Mateus (urbgimtam) added a comment to T54487: White Screen.

I've also had the same problem.
Blender would load, and then when clicking on the splash screen, it would be "disabled"/"locked".
After some time, Windows notifies the software is taking to long to respond.

I think we've seen this before, if i remember i saw someone resolve this by right clicking the blender shortcut and selecting what gpu to launch on, but since i don't have this setup i really can't offer any more details than that.

Since the commit rBe0597baed57f Carve library was removed from Blender. Since these boolean problems are related to issues within the library, the task can be closed.

Gary Wright II (cleverthings) added a comment to T34962: Problem make Blender open in the wanted monitor..

Workaround: I'm using v2.79 and experiencing same problem as described, where regardless of which monitor I was using as my main display, Blender was always opening up in the secondary monitor. I forgot to do a diff on the startup files, but this is how I worked around it: In Windows 10 I have a single video card with multiple monitors, but I think the problem is in the settings somewhere and doesn't matter the setup:

  1. I had to right-click on the Desktop and select Display Settings.
  2. Under "Multiple Displays" I changed it from "Extend These Displays" to "Duplicate These Displays"
  3. I opened Blender and with it selected in the primary display I Saved Startup File and then Close Blender.
  4. Under "Multiple Displays" I changed it from "Duplicate These Displays" back to "Extend These Displays"
  5. Reopen Blender, and it opens in the primary display as selected.

If I get a chance, I'll try to experiment to see exactly what is happening here, but in the meantime I hope this helps!

LazyDodo (LazyDodo) added a comment to D3032: fix T53951: copy runtime dlls using build in cmake functionality..

Just as a clarification, cmake silently removed the runtime dlls for 2.79a, i didn't do this deliberately, This patch retains the old functionality (include all needed dll's), and no longer silently fails when build with newer cmake.

Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) added a comment to D3032: fix T53951: copy runtime dlls using build in cmake functionality..

If this never impacts users (only CMake maintenance), then I don't see anything against applying the patch.

actually it does, i accidentally shipped the 2.79a-rc without the runtime dll's due to this issue, just nobody has noticed it yet...

LazyDodo (LazyDodo) added a comment to D3032: fix T53951: copy runtime dlls using build in cmake functionality..

I brought that up earlier today on irc, the BF stance was blender should work on a clean install, no extra downloads needed, so we're gonna keep shipping the runtime dll's (even though they ballooned from 3-4 to about 45 files)

This patch description is quite vague,

not sure why we were doing it by hand, cmake seems to have a handle on things.

Feliwebwork (feliwebwork) added a comment to T37027: blender only displays white blank screen on startup.

I have the same issue. Blender starts up with a white screen. I have an Windows 10, 64bit, intel i7 (1.99GHz), 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GEFORCE. I don't know much about computers, but the way that I was able to get Blender to work was to right-click on the start up icon, and choose "Run with Graphics Processor > integrated graphics". I don't know what implications this has on renders, etc., but it is the onl way I could get Blender to work.
