Notes

  • There may be display problems when running over a remote desktop. This can usually be fixed by restarting the software after beginning/ending a remote desktop session. Remote Desktop cannot be used with single-user/standalone locks, only with network locks.
  • Always download and install the latest drivers from your graphics card vendor. Graphics card problems are often due to using the wrong or outdated drivers. See Graphics Card Troubleshooting for instructions on how to download and install graphics card drivers. If continuing to experience problems after updating a graphics card drivers, contact support.
