Windows Installation

CVEDIA-RT will work out of the box on Windows with or without an NVIDIA GPU.


Running with NVIDIA GPU

To run using NVIDIA GPU acceleration, these additional requirements apply:

Check Compute Capability to make sure your GPU is compatible.

Running without GPU

CVEDIA-RT can run using OpenVino, with the minimum cpu requirements:

  • 6th or newer generation Intel Core processors
  • 1st or newer generation of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors
  • Intel Atom® processor with Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 4.2 (Intel® SSE4.2)

To run with OpenVino with IGP / GPU:

  • 6th or newer generation Intel Core processor with Intel® Iris® Plus and Intel® Iris® Pro graphics and Intel HD Graphics
  • 11th or newer generation Intel Core processor with Xe architecture
  • Intel Xeon processor with Intel® Iris® Plus and Intel Iris Pro graphics and Intel HD Graphics (excluding the e5 family which does not include graphics)
  • Intel® Iris® Xe MAX Graphics

Quick start

After downloading the Windows release package, extract it to a folder and run the CVEDIA-RT.bat:

Start Application

Running CVEDIA-RT with custom parameters

The bat file can be changed to provide the following arguments to the executable:
-s --solutions: Path to the folder of the solutions
-d: Config overrides (Runtime override for a project, will be loaded after project JSON config)


-d Motion/config/enabled=false

--remote: Runs CVEDIA-RT with Remote UI

--dx11: Runs CVEDIA-RT with DirectX 11 rendering engine

--glfw: Runs CVEDIA-RT with OpenGL rendering engine

--sdl: Runs CVEDIA-RT with SDL rendering engine

--version: Shows CVEDIA-RT version and exit

--help: View allowed arguments


If you're running without NVIDIA GPU, please make sure your CPU is compatible. Older / unsupported CPUs usually just crash the system without any other information.

If CVEDIA-RT opens but crashes when you try to run any of the solutions your windows may need to be updated.

On Windows 10, run dxdiag and check if your Operating System build is at least 19042 or newer.

If you're running Windows 11 or newer this playback problem shouldn't happen.

If you're running in GUI mode and CVEDIA-RT crashes with FATAL [..] [glfwui.cpp:68] glfwCreateWindow .., you can try starting it with a different rendering engine:

  • CVEDIA-RT.bat --dx11
  • CVEDIA-RT.bat --sdl

If none of these work, your graphics card may not be able to render CVEDIA-RT, you can still run it in headless mode (--headless) or Remote UI (--remote).

If you have issues running on Windows that couldn't be solved by this guide, you can run the generate_debug_report.bat tool to collect information about your computer and send it to us for debugging.

Please note that the generated report may include your Windows user name and other potentially sensitive information, do not share it publicly.
