TouchDesigner and Windows Remote Desktop

If you want to remotely control a PC with TouchDesigner with Remote Desktop, you know it wont start just because the virtual video card of the RD emulator.
If TD is already started you will have no problem.
So the solution, as said on the TD Help Group on Facebook from Jan-paul Vd Weerd, is to close Remote Desktop, start TD and reconnect.
To do this just use this procedure:

  1. Create a bat file on the desktop with this content:
    for /f “skip=1 tokens=3” %%s in (‘query user %USERNAME%’) do (

%windir%\System32\tscon.exe %%s /dest:console


cd “C:\Program Files\Derivative\TouchDesigner099\bin”

start TouchDesigner099.exe

  1. Once you connect on the remote computer run the bat file like administrator

  2. it will close the RD connection and start TD

  3. wait less than a minute and reconnect, you will find TD opened
    Hope it will be helpful!
