Ticket #8977 (closed defect: fixed)
VRDE server drawing problems with windows guests.
|Reported by:||mduft||Owned by:|
I recently switched from the SDL GUI to running all VMs headless, and accessing the console through the VRDE servers. For some reason there are very strange drawing problems in conjunction with the windows console (used for interix in my case, but that should not make a difference).
you can find a screen capture of the problem at . it happens with windows server 2003R2 and windows 7. Strange enough, the windows XP guest seems unaffected (VRDE settings are the same for all). If i rdesktop to the guest instead of the VRDE server, things work perfectly.
i'm on linux, of course, and i tried the rdesktop-vrdp client bundled with vbox and gentoo's rdesktop 1.7.0, both with the same results.
rdesktop sometimes moans something like this:
ERROR: order parsing failed ERROR: order parsing failed NOT IMPLEMENTED: secondary order 108 ERROR: order parsing failed ERROR: order parsing failed ERROR: order parsing failed ERROR: order parsing failed NOT IMPLEMENTED: order 249 NOT IMPLEMENTED: order 249
if it helps: the log for the session in the screen recording is attached.
