Hi Dave,
I did some more research after I sent this email and I haven't had a chance to send another email with my findings.

I found a way to fix this.  I did some research on the web and I found a way around this.  You have to edit the batch file that is installed in C:\Program Files\QueryForm Database Tool\qform.bat.

A line says:

"C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_01\bin\java" -classpath %RUNPATH% org.glasser.qform.QForm

This needs to be changed to:

"C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_01\bin\java" -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -classpath %RUNPATH% org.glasser.qform.QForm

I tested this at a site and it seemed to work great.  I found the info from Java's site here:


It turns out that it is a Java thing and nothing to do with your program.

Hi Jeremy,

I have an idea of how this might be worked around. Give me a day or
two and I'll send you a qform.jar file to try out.

>Java or ActiveX application on host does not refresh its video when controlled by remote
>When you have remote control over a host that is running a specific Java or ActiveX application, the host screen does not refresh correctly. If you do not run the specific Java application on the host, then the screen is refreshed correctly.
>Some Java and ActiveX applications use video caching to display graphics. This technique renders the video outside of the computer's video driver control. Because pcAnywhere monitors only the host video driver for video activity, any video processes rendered outside of it is not sent back to the remote. This effectively prevents the remote user from seeing what is occurring in the Java or ActiveX application. In cases such as this, the only real solution is for the developer to rewrite the software to not use video caching.
>Has anyone else ever had this problem? Is there any chance that this would be changed in the program? I really love the tool but it is a real pain to get the screen to refresh.
