Ctrl Alt Del - Does not work

I've been testing the product for a few hours and like the features but a very important one does not work.

Ctrl Alt Del (CAD) does not work with Remote Utilities agent to unlock Windows. I tried using the Windows Viewer and the Android app.

CAD does work with TeamViewer's QS agent so it should work without having to install any host software on the remote.

I did search the forums for a solution but it looks like this has been an issue for quite sometime and it was supposed to have been fixed already. I found a post where someone recommended using the on-screen accessibility keyboard but CAD only works when sitting in front of the remote and using its mouse.

This is a real deal breaker, guys :-(

Hello Jeff,

Thank you for your message. On the remote side, are you using the Host or the Agent? Also, what the operating system on the local and remote side?

Using the portable host and the agent. Both systems are Windows 7 x64.

You probably meant portable Viewer (on the local side), correct?

You are correct. I meant portable viewer on local and agent on remote ;-)

Hi Jeff,

Currently, the Agent doesn't support CAD. But we'll see what we can do to implement CAD support for the Agent.
