Win7 ultimate x64. Two monitors, primary to right. When viewing primary monitor, it is fine. Click button for full desktop/switch monitor toggles between primary screen and full desktop. In full desktop, attempt to use secondary (left) portion of the screen is completely unstable, with elements of the primary screen coming and going.

Another dual monitor issue WITH video hook, may only happen when primary is to the right?

Both monitors active, tool tips (text that appears next to mouse) does not back fill right. When the tip goes away, a piece of screen from the right UNDER the active window fills in. Deactivate second monitor, and it's fine.

Win7 enterprise x64, two monitors 1600x1200 primary on the right side. I can confirm this in parts. After switching to full desktop on the client, a black screen appears on the right! side of the clients display, while still showing the servers primary(right) display on the left, and windows from the servers secondary display come and go.

Dual Monitor, Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit. Mouse clicks not recognised from XP remote. Uninstalled 1.0.8.2 server and installed 1.0.6.5 instead - all OK.

another dual monitor, primary right issue with hook driver:

When I first connect, the first monitor I see is the secondary (left). Also, I keep my left in portrait, right in landscape. The view is the left in landscape, the bottom is chopped and the right is part of the primary on the left. Basically take a landscape box and start in the upper left of the secondary on the right. Select the desktop button and it becomes the full desktop but with draw issues as stated prior.

Hope that makes sense.

I have tested this also, In the mirror driver the same problem seems to occur. When using the mirror driver, when moving the mouse cursor over the left monitor (monitor2) it leaves traces (blocks if you will) of the right monitor (monitor1) in its wake.
So picture the left (monitor2) empty, and a filled right one (monitor1). Moving the mouse on the left screen slowly in a pattern will leave the right monitor on the screen of the left monitor.

This only when using the video mirror driver. Without it, everything works like a charm with this new version.

I would like to confirm that this new version posted by Rudi (#10) fixes the issue for Windows Server 2003 for my primary display on lower-left quadrant and secondary on upper-right quadrant.

My symptoms were the remote mouse stayed on the top part of my primary display.

I can't see dual screens in a single click session. Is there any fix for that?
You obviously lack the creative genius to integrate Legos and Duplos.

My secondary display (1024x768) on the right is placed about 200px higher than my primary display (1680x1050).

Ultravnc maps (0,0) as top left corner instead of (0,200), so it's showing the top 200px of screen as black and cropped the lower 200px when I connect to it.

I'm not able to see or click the start button.

This build fixes the mouse but didn't fix the screen mapping for me.

I also have a similar issue, however for me it's the server that crashes (I believe the client just closes).

Setup:
Win7 x64 client, XP SP3 Server fully MS patched
UltraVNC v1.0.8.2 on both Client & Server
Server: nVidia 8400GS with v196.21 WHQL drivers
Primary Screen: Set to 1280x720 32bit Color
Secondary Screen: Set to 800x600 32bit Color

Interestingly, it sometimes works fine - seems like for that session, but other times it just crashes every time I swap to the second screen.

It's slightly less painful now because the service seems to restart itself automatically (which is nice), but still, annoying because you have to try 3 or more times sometimes to get a 'good' session where it will work.

Edit: Tried the updated winvnc.exe and that resolves the issue. It would be nice to still have the option of displaying the 2nd screen by itself however.

The above posted fix resolved my problem on a Vista Ultimate x64 system w/ 3 x 1280x1024 displays, and also resolved problems with a Win7 Pro running 2 displays (not sure exact resolution)
It looks like it's the positioning causing it as Rudi said above.

kisson, I'd suggest using 1.0.8.0 instead. It seems to have much better multiple monitor support in my limited experience.

Thanks redge. I don't think I've tried that yet -- BUT my bigger complaint with 1.0.8.2 is its broken repeater support. I don't imagine the version you just linked fixes that?

yes, I am using build_10832
first, I wonder uvnc_settings.exe left right settings don't work because of I am not in service mode , but I found that it is not related

and after I install mirror driver, it is working correctly

but my secondary is 4:3 , and uvnc makes it the same height and aspect like my primary which is 16:10
1152x864 -> 1440x900 , now I see the left monitor plus left most 288 pixel in my viewer for left display , as well as 1152x36 in the lower left

and in order to show my primary screen only , I need to disable hookdll
and re-enable when I want to show my secondary

I'm having an issue where I vnc into a user's machine, and while it looks like my mouse on their primary monitor, it is actually on the secondary monitor on the user's end. Sure makes it hard to click on any icons etc. Does the update in #10 fix this? If so, does this fix need to be applied on all of the end user's machine or just mine?

Thanks for any help

Thanks Rudi De Vos for this fix, it fixed my triple screen bug too, my primary screnis the right one, but UVNC was putting the mouse cursor on the left one, not even the center one.

Yes it fixes that kind of problem. The file is the server application, so it have to be applied on the end user machine :)

But I have another problem with triple screen, I have to use 1/1 server size or the screen is enlarged and sometimes the client crashes.

I had the same problem where my mouse would be stuck all the way on the left of the leftmost screen when using multiple monitors. The update fixed it. Hope the fix gets integrated into the next stable build!

Much thanks!

Used to be fine but about a week ago suddenly I was able to see only primary. Tried fixes from this thread. No hook/mirror driver.[/img]
