I want to install this program so my computer can connect to a desktop. Would the desktop be the host?

Hello Kelly,

Yes, the remote computer which you want to access should have Host installed. The computer you work from should have Viewer installer.

Hi Steen,

Yes, that works as a workaround. I was just hoping that if it was a bug we could find a cause and possibly fix it :)

Anyway, let us know if you need any assistance in the future.
