version 6.5.0.8 (running private server)

When Blank the host's screen is enabled, it appear the thumbnail in the viewer is black....  technically a bug?

Remote access works fine...

Ive also put a request in the features request around about this...

Many Thanks

Hello Ashley,

Thank you for your post.

Could be a bug. We'll check it out. What is the operating system on the remote and local PCs?

Hi Ashley,

This is a side effect, unfortunately. And it only manifests itself when Windows 7 and older is used. Starting Windows 8 and higher a new monitor driver is used and hence no such effect.

Let me know if you have other questions.
