Microsoft Access Runtime, Remote Desktop Resolution


  • Hi,

    Using MS Access 2010 sp1.

    I've made a simple form in 1080p (1920x1080) that runs fine and in full resolution on my local Windows Ultimate machine.

    When i try to run the same form using Access Runtime on my Remote Desktop server (running win 2008 R2 Sp1, ms access 2010 sp1), it doesn't use 1080p, even though the remote session is 1080p, all other programs etc work fine, so it's not the remote session that have the wrong resolution. It scales down to about 1500x800 something, but that differs on different resolutions. The main problem is that it scales down instead of using 1080p  which it does locally.

    Anyone have any idea what could cause this? It's would be great to figure this one out because the application we've made doesn't work very well in lower resolutions, that's why we've coded it exactly for 1080p.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    Could you tell whether the Access Runtime or the Access 2010 SP1 is installed on the Windows Server 2008 R2?

    Which version of Access Runtime has been install? With Service Pack or not?

    What if we open the form in the local machine running Windows 7, will it display normally?

    What if we open the form in the local machine running Windows Server 2008 R2, will it display normally?


    Please make sure all the latest upates and service packs have been installed.

    Try to run it with Compatibility Mode (Run as Windows 7) to check this issue.

  • Hi,

    Access Runtime SP1 2010 is installed on both local and win 2008 r2.

    If we open it on the local machine, it displays normally, but on server it doesn't.

    Here is a sample form showing the difference:




    Any suggestions?
