Session Window opens tiny on 4K Monitor

Karama 2 months ago updated by Eric Davis (SDT) 7 hours ago 11

Since upgrade to 19.5 when i open a client session the session Window is tiny and i have to resize it larger to make it usable.  When i close the session and re-open it opens tiny again, it does this no matter what computer i click on and start a session.  Nothing has changed on my computer.  Wasn't doing this before upgrade to 19.5


Advanced Configuration Editor on v19.6 — "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

Simon (Annet) 2 months ago updated by Eric Davis (SDT) 7 hours ago 8

I updated my cloud instance to 19.6.26188.7290.

On the Configuration page, when I click on any of the four links under 'Web Configuration', I get the following error message: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

This isn't the case with the links under 'Application Configuration' or 'Disable Host Client Menu Items'. They're working just fine.

Chat / messaging notification does not clear in 19.0

PoorlyPCNigel 10 months ago updated by Caitlin Barnes (Product Manager) 2 days ago 14

The blue dot to indicate a waiting chat / message notification does not clear even after the messaging window is accessed. This worked correctly up until 19.0

Eric Davis (SDT) 10 months ago

We added a delay to the clearing, which defaults to 10 minutes.

We'll have updates to the Advanced Configuration Editor and Edit Web.config AppSettings extensions shortly, but if you're on-prem and don't want to wait, look for AcknowledgeMessageDelaySeconds in web.config.

Kerjenski 3 days ago updated by Caitlin Barnes (Product Manager) 3 days ago 1

|Not sure if it affects mac's as a whole but the cases I have seen it is on MacBook pros. 

There is a constant pop up message of 'Operation 'RebootReconnectMessage' Not supported' 

this appears with no prompt from the user

the feature does work as I am able to reboot the mac from the remote session control panel 

the pop up continues to arise after the service is forced to quit as the service then automatically starts up again

Caps Lock Inverted

mrizzo 2 years ago updated by Joe W 3 days ago 7

When first remoting into a system, it does not recognize the status of your keyboard's caps lock. Thus, the Caps lock on the remote system may be inverted.

For example, if I remote into a system with my CAPS on (and that system, the caps is off), it does not recognize that my caps is on.

Session freezes when scrolling and cursor moves out of client window

Davison 2 years ago updated 6 days ago 3

If a scrolling action is occurring (via holding down left mouse button) and the mouse cursor moves outside of the host client window, the session locks up.  It becomes unresponsive (as though the entire client window has lost focus) until the window receives a mouse click to bring back "focus", at which point normal interaction can then resume.  This can be quite annoying especially since the scroll bar in a full screen window will always be right at the very edge of the client window making it difficult to not move the cursor out of the client window.

In addition, when the cursor leaves the client window while scrolling a "generic" icon appears in the task bar coinciding with the unresponsiveness, and this icon disappears when the window receives a mouse click that restores normal behavior.

This occurs in v6.6.18120.6697 (as well as all previous versions going back at least several years).  I'm happy to provide any additional information requested.
