Black Report windows via RDP


We have a couple of virtualized clients. Windows 7 on ESX. If I generate a report only a black window appears. Even when I use vSphere Client instead of the RDP. It is a WPF (. NET 4.0) application with Crystal Report 2010. The report will be displayed with the SAPBusinessObjects.WPF.Viewer.CrystalReportsViewer.

What I can do to make the report not simply appear as a black box?

    Hi Roloand,

    This is something I have not heard of. We test using Lab Manager as the front end to our ESX servers and we don't see the same behviour. What version of ESX are you running? Do you have the latest VMWare tools installed? What resolution and colour depth are you at? Have you tried other resolutions or colour depths?

    Kind Regards,
