I do not have windows 11 to test and was wondering if Remote Desktop and SSH still stop Boinc GPU apps. VNC and Splashtop work fine. I do not know why Microsoft's remote access tools are designed not to work.

I wouldn't expect them to work as long as Microsoft uses its own - non-updatable - driver for remote desktop. That's what is causing this. A universal driver that only does 2D desktop rendering on all videocards, doing away with things as DirectX3D, OpenGL, OpenCL, and CUDA.

I do not understand what Microsoft is trying to do. They used to charge license fees for remote access to their servers and you had to be licensed in additional for office apps not just to log in. Each person that logged in got their own desktop. I assume they still do that. I am guessing that if you licensed their remote access you would be able to keep your GPU apps running.

So VNC, Splashtop and TeamViewer all work fine but Microsoft's remote access stops GPU tasks. I am guessing they consider this a security feature.

I ran out of free license for VNC and enabled Remote Desktop. Then I spend an hour trying to debug why Milkyway and Einstein were not running before I remembered that the GPU is suspended when remoting in. Very likely, win11 will not change anything.

I'm dealing with that right now. Is there any difference between the free version of VNC and the professional version of VNC in terms of security? I can't find anything on their website that lays out the differences.

Do not use the pro version, sorry.

I did pay for the Splashtop remote subscription so I can use my cell phone to access my systems but I am using the "5 free one" version even on Splashtop.
