I seem to be having an issue where whenever I start Krita, the window is just a black screen. I’m on Windows 7 and using Krita 4.2.8. Prior to this, I had many other problems starting Krita as my PC was just formatted, and I needed to reinstall it. I might have solved those problems, but the one I’m facing now is different.
After the loading screen is done, saying “Loading Main Window…”, the window is all black. Whenever I tried opening a .kra file, a small error message of Krita’s will pop up. The first time it did this, it said something about not being able to initialize OpenGL (or something like that; I was unable to get a screenshot). The succeeding times, it crashed Krita entirely before the message could load again. I tried reinstalling Krita (the same version) over and over again, but it wouldn’t work.
At this point, I’m desperate to try and get it to work because I have this .kra file I really need to open. I’m asking for your help. Any ideas on how to fix this problem are greatly appreciated. If you guys think this is an actual bug, I’ll go ahead and file a bug report.
