Does the LunarG SDK support building software without access to the driver or hardware?
Yes, the SDK supports building Vulkan applications without a driver or hardware. The SDK installs the Vulkan header files and the Vulkan loader library in standard system locations.
A Vulkan application compiles using the Vulkan header files. It links using the Vulkan loader library. No Vulkan-capable hardware or drivers are needed for compilation and linking.
