Issue Details

  • I have a cDAQ controller installed with windows embedded and am trying to connect via VNC as well as using a monitor that isn't plugged in on startup
  • If the monitor is connected when I start the cDAQ, VNC works properly
  • If the monitor isn't connected when I start the cDAQ, I'm not able to get any images to show through VNC
  • If I disable this driver we can use VNC, but the monitor works only if it is plugged in before startup
  • Is there an known issue with VNC and my controller?
