VCV Doesn't work using remote desktop?

Hi Masters,

I tried use VCV in an individual PC, and remote it with “microsoft remote desktop” from my MAC BOOK PRO.

In this situation, i can not adjust parameters in VCV. meaning the mouse can not work correctly.

Any suggestion here?


Might mostly work if you change the value of “allowCursorLock” in settings.json.

Hi Bro,
Where can i find the file “settings.json” ?

Thank you so much for that :slight_smile:

I used to have this problem with other OpenGL apps. Remote Desktop doesn’t transmit mouse events in the same or a similar way as mice, so the application gets confused as to what’s going on and behaves incorrectly. As far as I know there is no fix and application’s don’t know its happening. (I didn’t crossbar this with DirectX apps to see if its sabotage or just a genuine discontinuity.)

It’s in the Rack folder. On Windows that’s like c:\users\paul\documents\rack

Hi PaulPiko,

It’s done!!! Thank you sooooooooooo much :slight_smile:

Also thanks to this thread :


Another suggestion here… Possibly more secure? Teamviewer.
