xming and windows 7


Hello,

I've been using Xming 6.9.0.31 with Windows XP for a logtime now. It has worked without issue. I've now gone to Windows 7 and I cannot get an X session to open. If I look at the xming log it gives the impression that a session is active but it just doesn't display anything. Every now and then it will work but majority of the time is doesn't.

Nothing has changed on the Red Hat server and clients using XP can connect without issue.

I've tried changing the resolution of my PC.
I've upgraded the graphics drivers.
Uninstalled/reinstalled Xming.
Deleted my Putty connection config and re-created.

Any ideas what else I could try?

Thanks

PJ

I can state that it works fine for me in Win7.

But it does look like you are using a very old version, which would prolly be why you are having issues with win 7.

try this one
7.5.0.31

Thanks for your reply.

I don't really want to donate money for version 7.5.0.31 if it's not going to work for me.

Try mobaxterm

I have used Mobaxterm on a computer with Windows XP. The nice part is that it does not need to be installed so you do not need admin privileges.

Regards,
Stefan
