I just installed RU on my Win 10 computer...and also my Android tablet and also Android Telephone.

The Windows installation works well.

Both of the Android installations do NOT have any mouse that makes control impossible.  Am I missing a setting on the Android App?

Mark, be aware that if you are connecting to a host computer that has no physical mouse connected, the mobile apps do not locally render a virtual cursor.  A workaround is to enable "Mouse Keys" on the host computer as described in this post:

Hope that helps you!  It did me!
