I am trying to launch a GUI of a program on my windows computer by ssh with putty.

I downloaded Xterm and have that running, and then in the putty options, I checked the box for X11 forwarding.

When I try to run my program, it comes up, but all greyed out. They terminal says:

failed to get the current screen resources
QXcbConnection: XCB error: 170 (Unknown), sequence: 170, resource id: 90, major code: 146 (Unknown), minor code: 20
Xlib:  extension "MIT-SHM" missing on display "localhost:24.0".
Xlib:  extension "MIT-SHM" missing on display "localhost:24.0".
Xlib:  extension "MIT-SHM" missing on display "localhost:24.0".

Xlib:  extension "MIT-SHM" missing on display "localhost:24.0".
Xlib:  extension "MIT-SHM" missing on display "localhost:24.0".

It keeps repeating this until I cntl+c out.

Any ideas what could be causing this?
