.exe file wont run over RDP / VNC etc
Ive got a bespoke .exe file which connects to an IP device which is used to control the multimedia in a classroom. (turn on lights, turn on projector etc) by clicking on buttons on the app.
There is dedicated PC in the classroom that the teachers remote connect to, and this .exe runs on that pc.
Problem is, when they remote connect, the .exe doesnt run. If they log in locally to the machine, the .exe runs.
Ive disabled the firewall etc on the pc, but cannot figure for the life of me why this wont work over a remote session.
There is obvioulsy something different when running remotely from locally but I have no idea what those are or how to get this .exe to run.. Help!

Is this a logon script, or a clicky "run"?

its a .exe file on the desktop Im trying to double click on. It just does nothing in any sort of remote controlled environment.

Could be a few things offhand (from a coding point of view), Like if it's trying to access any certain files/registries, and doesn't have knowledge of Terminal users, it won't auth properly as that user won't exist locally.

would a capture from process monitor be of use?

Could the exe be detecting that the frame rate has dropped?

the .exe is literally just a bunch of buttons which send an on/off through IP to the device which then implements the switch on or off.
Its just a little GUI made in ( i think ) visual basic. Would a screen frame rate affect that?
I can send anyone the process monitor caputre of it failing in rdp/vnc and of it working locally if they think they would be able to tell anything from it (3mb each) pm me

Have you compared the output of both process dumps? Are there any differences?

one you can see opening up a gui and sending network info the other doesnt. Im not really sure what else im looking for tbh

Try a Procmon dump.
Compare both outputs with windiff. I'd be surprised if there's a difference.
