I've cloned, built, and successfully run the current development branch on one computer and now I'm trying to get setup on my normal gaming system. I installed the latest vs2019, cloned, cmake, and build. Trying 32-bit debug and release and neither is working on this machine. I do a build and then install to a directory. Looks like everything needed is there and I get the launchpad. Default 3d device and windowed screen. When I launch I get a blank window and no error messages. If I switch to full-screen it works fine. I can run the standard Orbiter 2016 download in either mode.
Any idea what might be going on?

GitHub orbiter installation does not have textures. Do you have Orbiter 2016 installation on your machine? You need to set ORBITER_PLANET_TEXTURE_INSTALL_DIR variable for CMake when configuring so that your freshly-built Orbiter version can correctly init graphics
