    Seamless Remote Desktop Issues with Windows 7 VM

    Hi,

    I have a KVM virtual machine running windows 7. I'm attempting to setup seamless integration with my ubuntu desktop using the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Se...Virtualization

    I execute rdesktop using the following command
    Code:
    rdesktop -A -s "c:\seamlessrdp\seamlessrdpshell.exe C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" <IP> -u <username> -p <password>
    But instead of getting Internet Explorer I get the full windows desktop shown.

    Any advice on what I could be doing wrong or how to gather further information on what's broken?

    I'll add a me too and if I find the answer I'll post findings!

    This works but is a hack...

    "If you are using windows 7 top application bar bar, close it, it causes problem with drawing.
    Open a command prompt on windows. and run an application with seamlessrdp from there.
    Example:
    CODE: SELECT ALL
    c:\seamlessrdp\seamlessrdpshell64.exe notepad"
