Has anybody of you noticed this? When using Windows 7 (or Vista, I've had the same problem there) with the "concurrent users remote desktop hack" applied, Java apps and video playback will "hang" for a remote user.
Using the concurrent users hack, it's possible to log into the system via Remote Desktop as a second user without disturbing what the system is doing (for example running the HTPC frontend). However, I've found a few things that don't work for a remote user, when a local user is also logged in. In all cases the application hangs, maxing out the CPU, and the application resumes as soon as the local user logs out.
- Java applets. Even the Java control panel applet freezes.
- Playing videos. Windows Media Player and MPC-HT freeze. VLC does not freeze, but it won't play the video and does not show any error message.
- Photo viewing in Live Photo Gallery. LPG freezes, but everything works fine when using Windows Photo Gallery instead.
I've been having this problem when using Vista and when using Win7, and can even recreate it now on a virtual machine.
Are more people having this problem, and is there a solution known?
