can GUI run on Rock Pi X with Windows ? [resolved]

I was trying to implement the gui on my Rock Pi X with Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor and integrated gpu. However the gui, which I tried both latest processing and exe version, all failed to boot. Here is the picture.

For exe version there is only white blank screen.
Similar issues also happened when I was using win10arm on respberry pi 4b.
Is there anyway to solve this problem?

    This is a very low level issue with the device you are using and Processing's ability to draw graphics using OpenGL. I do not think this is something that can be fixed easily. The GUI should be able to run on Windows 10 computers using typical 64-bit CPU instead of ARM. For such reasons, GUI v5 does not support ARM devices.

    It is still possible to record and visualize data on this device! You will probably want to start using BrainFlow directly (handles backend communication for OpenBCI boards), after compiling the core library on the device.

    You can also join the official BrainFlow Slack to get more help on how to do this: https://c6ber255cc.execute-api.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/Express/

    Thanks for you reply, retiutut. However the problem that I couldn't figure out is that Rock Pi X is a X86 board rather than arm, using Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, I bought it just for this to get rid of arm structure. However it is still not working, which is why I'm confused. The board is even capable of running half-life 2.
    So this is not a problem on running gui on arm. It's about gui doesn't running on a x86 device. So my question is that is there any solution for a board with Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor and integrated gpu.

    Dream, hi.

    As Richard said, your issue is likely the lack of OpenGL library support for this configuration. There MAY be some drivers out there.

    Thanks to your info, the problem has been solved, it is the adaptor's issue, the default setting driver was Intel Basics Video Adaptor. I changed it to Intel HD graphics driver and it works. Now my bci x86 gauntlet is almost completed.

    Wow, nice build. Thanos and Iron Man would be envious.

    Wow this is impressive! Thank you for sharing your fix with the Community here on the Forum.

    @Dreambuild When you are ready, I would consider making a post on the Community section of the OpenBCI site. https://openbci.com/community

    Happy Hacking!
