(Resolved - My own stupidity) Remote Desktop 8.1.3 for iOS (iOS 8.0) - Connects to Black Screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • New version, new problems!

    After finally solving my problems with connecting introduced in 8.1.0 for iOS, I have updated to 8.1.3 and have a new problem!

    I am able to log in, but upon login, I am presented with a black screen instead of my desktop.  If I turn on the mouse pointer, the pointer shows up, but it does not control the remote computer.

    Additionally, the iOS Remote Desktop Client is not "taking over" the remote computer... I am typing on the computer to write this, while my iPad's Remote Desktop app is supposedly "connected" to it.

    Anyone else having this new issue?

    Garbage in, garbage out!  I have two computers connected to the same monitor...My 2nd computer was active on the monitor, hiding the fact that my primary computer (and remote desktop host computer) needed a restart!  I restarted, and the issue was resolved!
