Virtual machine


how could I implement that the virtual machine runs the game inputs and I can do whatever ? Answer would be appreciated i am not a IT Specialist I am a Chemist^^


So i got EVE on my Virtual Machine running but Botlab just keeps beeing a white screen

Hey @YurifX, sorry for the interruption. I suspect that this is caused by the BotLab client not correctly integrating the WebView2 component. I will read up on the integration and update the BotLab client to fix this.

You don’t need to wait for that update, as you can fix this for your system by installing that ‘WebView2’ component manually.

To install or update the WebView2 Runtime:

  1. Go to page
  2. Scroll down to section Evergreen Bootstrapper, select Download > Accept and Download.
  3. Find the executable file in your Downloads folder, right-click it and select Run as administrator.
  4. Enter your administrator credentials. The installation starts and is completed in the background.

After installing WebView2 this way and restarting Windows, the BotLab client window should show the contents as normal.

Today, I have learned more about the WebView2 dependencies and made progress in adapting the BotLab client.
I just published version 2024-02-10 with an improvement to mitigate this problem.
Instead of the white view or generic message in a popup window, the new version displays the installation guide as posted above:

This new guide should avoid confusion in the future. Setups with Windows 11 should never see this error because Microsoft automatically installs WebView2 with Windows Update.

Some observations on the automatic installation in Windows 10: Today, I set up a Windows 10 inside a HyperV VM. With the fresh installation of Windows 10, WebView2 was initially not there, allowing the reproduction of the error message. However, it turned out that Windows Update installed it soon, and after restarting the VM, the BotLab client GUI worked as usual.
