RemoteDesktop: are admin privileges different?

NETCOP-DISCLAIMER: yea, sorry I posted in .general first

Have run into a strange behavior and am trying to figure out what is
happening. If I reboot a home vista 64 system from my office over RDP, the
nVidia coprocessor (CUDA object) is no longer recognized and tasks that are
supposed to run on it will not start. I have to go home and cycle the
power. This does not happen if I am at home and I select restart.

I looked thru the event logs and did not see anything out of the ordinary.
If there was some privilege denied to remote desktop admins I would think it
would show up in the security or system log. The only error message I can
find is the one displayed interactively by the app when it starts up, ie: to
the effect it cannot find the CUDA object.


Yes, I do admit to downloading and installing the remote desktop dll into
this home premium system. However, this same problem (unable to find CUDA)
has been reported by other users at gpugrid and seti and they are using
business vista which has the legit remote desktop service.


TIA

Note that answers in these groups are provided by volunteers. If you want
help, it is advantageous that you cooperate. Complaining like this
("NETCOP") rarely helps and is more likely to cause the people that help to
not want to help you.

Often suggestions are made for a better place to post questions because the
other places are where the most experts in the relevant subject are. For
example, it is likely that some specialists in Vista security do not often
look at the ".general" group, so when the suggestion is made to post here,
they are trying to help you.

Have you contacted nVidia and searched in their support site and in other
sites that provide assistance with that hardware?

I am sorry that this is the group someone suggested you use for this; it is
probably a hardware problem. It probably must be fixed by nVidia. Even if it
is a problem with Vista, you might need to ask in a hardware forum. I know
there is at least one group for help with hardware using Windows.
