I installed TVNC 2.6.4 on a new Windows 7 (64 bit) machine. I'm trying to view, also with TVNC with 2.6.4 on a Windows XP machine. The first session, everything was fine. But now, when I start the session, I only see the top left hand corner of the server screen, and the apparent cursor location does not correspond with the actual location. Looking at the connection information, I see a resolution of 1280x720, but the actual resolution of the server's screen is 1920x1080. I tried setting different resolutions on the server's machine via the standard windows controls. The resolution numbers in the VNC connection information dialogue would also change, but they wouldn't match the actual resolution of the screen on the server.

    I have this exact same issue, just happened within the last few weeks, haven't changed any of the software and it's definitely on the server side. I've tried uninstalling-reinstalling, no luck.
