In our company we have built up a renderfarm with 4 PCs for AE Netrendering. On each PC is the AE Renderengine installed which watches a watchfolder. Because the PCs only have to render and not to show something they don't own a graphics card but only an onboard graphics chip with a color depth of 16. Now the renderengines throw error-messages that AE can`t be shown correctly with at least 256 colors. But this is not important for just rendering. The message stops the renderprocess of the renderengine until it is confirmed. Anybody knows how to get rid of this?

I may highly be mistake but I think that AE needs a sufficent graphic card in order for him to render. Be sure of course to turn off OpenGL that may cause your problem too.
Umm, sorry, but even the render engine uses the standard UI components and thus requires some capabilities. I'm sure that's clearly mentioned somewhere in the docs as well. You're out of luck on that one. The only thing that will work is the commandline render, obviously.
