I think on of the VNC versions should be tested. Try http://download.cnet.com/TightVNC/3000-7240_4-10114315.html
I am having a problem with windows Remote Desktop.
I am using an XP home laptop to control an XP Pro desktop in order to play back music from ripped CDs and BBC radio etc.
While the remote desktop session is connected, all is fine, but when I close the session, the MP3s stop, although browser links continue. This is in spite of the message informing me that programs will continue to run. I?m using WMP10 as the player, and want to stick with this version.
It happens whether I use the Remote Desktop from the menu, or MSTSC /v:mediaserver /CONSOLE from the command line.
I had a similar problem when controlling an XP media center machine, but it mysteriously went away (This could just have been because I had changed to a different player in the meantime).
Any suggestions gratefully received
