Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Windows XP 64 bit SP2 host, Windows XP 32 bit SP3 guest.
When I connect to a headless session via the Windows remote desktop client and the Virtualbox VRDP server, the display will be solid black. If no user is logged in. a blinking white cursor will display. If I start typing, the input fields and buttons of the login dialog will display with everything else remaining black. If I log in, the display will come up normally.
If there is a user logged in, clicking the mouse will cause a small square of the display to show. In this case, disconnecting and reconnecting will usually result in the display coming up correctly.
