Hi,there!~ it's my first time to try Remote Utilities, it's good software.
I face a problem, Viewer can't not get host PC screen.
I could chat with host PC, but can not control remote host PC (I got a black screen in Viewer.)

Hi Ian,

Thank you for your post.

There may be different reasons that cause the issue, but first and foremost you should try to restart your remote Host PC if you didn't do so after Host installation.

Otherwise, please check out other solutions listed in this article:

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi Conrad Administrator,

Thank for your reply.
I’ve restarted Host and Viewer PCs, I still got black screen on Viewer PC.
But I found one thing, if I move Viewer-PC’s mouse on black screen, Host PC’s one is moving, too.
It seems that Viewer PC has successful logged in the Host, but the screen information dosen't transfer out of Host PC.
PS: I’ve tried it on different PCs. The problem still exists, is there any wrong with me?
