Ticket #6743 (closed defect: fixed)
Mac + Multimonitor + Remote Desktop access = read only on second monitor
|Reported by:||pgquiles||Owned by:|
Host: Macintosh 10.6.3 (this issue is not reproducible on Windows or Linux)
Guest: Windows XP SP3
Steps to reproduce:
- Configure multimonitor (in my case 3 monitors, but 2 should be enough to reproduce)
- Enable multicon (VBoxManage modifyvm WinXP --vrdpmulticon on)
- Boot the Windows guest
- Connect to the first display (@1) using the Remote Desktop client (this issue is not reproducible if using multimonitor through VirtualBox GUI windows), start an application and move a window partially to the second display.
- Now connect to the second display (@2) using the Remote Desktop client and try to move the window.
Result: you cannot move the window, it's like the Remote Desktop connection to the second display is read-only.
Expected behavior: you can move the window. VirtualBox 3.2.0 on Windows and Linux does not have this problem.
You can use any Remote Desktop client to reproduce the issue. I tested on Windows 7, Mac (using Microsoft Remote Desktop Client 2.0) and Linux (rdeskop 1.6.0).
