CTRL + Render doesn't render animation

Supposedly one can hold CTRL and click the render window button and have an OpenGL preview of an animation rendered. On my machine the only frame that is rendered it the first frame. I’m running 2.45 on Linux. A buddy tried on Windows and his worked fine. Does anyone else have this problem?

See the attached screenshot for the button I’m talking about.


Your Ctrl button may be sticking or mapped to something else with F12. Have you tried it with Shft or Shft-Ctrl?


No dice with alternate keys. I did some more testing and noticed that it DOES work if there’s not Armatures in the model it seems…
