Like many other people, I have discovered that ConsoleOne doesn't refresh properly when viewed over a PCAnywhere connection. I have seen many suggestions to resolve this issue by changing the video compatability mode of PCanywhere, but this did not work for me.


A little delving into Java issues on Sun's website led me to discover that turning off Microsoft's DirectDraw will fix the problem.

Here are the steps to follow.

  2. Expand CurrentControlSet\Control\Grap*hicsDrivers\DCI.
  3. Open the DCI folder, which contains a binary value called Timeout.
  4. Change the Timeout value to zero.



Additionally, I found that many screensavers can cause graphics corruption when ConsoleOne resumes. Turning off DirectDraw also resolves that issue.
