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.
- Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM.
- Expand CurrentControlSet\Control\Grap*hicsDrivers\DCI.
- Open the DCI folder, which contains a binary value called Timeout.
- 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.
