After an endless search for a fix of Xming's broken clipboard or for an alternative X-server on Windows I found VcXsrv. Finally copy and paste works fine between Linux and Windows. I can only recommend it. Thank you for the great work.
As a non-programmer of X display software I cannot judge the code, etc., so I can only really review as a user - ie, ease of use, documentation, etc. The software may be a technical marvel, but if key features/functionality do not work, there is no documentation available on said feature(s), and no answers from the developers for most/all questions posted - some as long as 2-3 years ago... then it doesn't really matter how awesome the software may be in other ways. There is little to no documentation of anything for this windows X server. A major show-stopper for usability of this software for me is the problem of the mouse cursor disappearing while it is over the remote X window/application regardless of which type of launch you do. The mouse works fine elsewhere in Windows but as soon as you place it over any part of the X window, it vanishes, making it useless for myself or more importantly for my wife who I am trying to set remote access to an X/Linux app up for. (for the record, I'm trying to use it to run virt-manager remotely from a Windows 7 system). The remote X display rendering is horribly slow, and it is not due to lack of display/GL/drawing or any other video card hardware capability on the client side. No need to provide specs of the video cards on the client as I am not trying to impress anyone. Remote display on the same client FLIES running Linux and SPICE. Obviously, remote X display != SPICE, but if there was any documentation, support, or even semi-intelligent discussion of problems with this software available or evident otherwise I could read it and try to work through the problems. With basically nobody's questions about ANYTHING related to this software answered for a period of years, I would be a fool to expect things to be any different for any questions I post. Thanks but I'll try something else to accomplish what I need. Have spent enough time on this approach.
This is one very handy piece of software, I use it to run Eclipse from a Linux box on my Windows desktop. It used to work well, but right now the VcXsrv program disappears after about 30 seconds. Not sure if this is due to a recent Windows 10 update, but would love to help fix it if I can.
Works fine with Remote Desktop Manager under Windows 10.
This software is awesome!! Just worked better for me.. Greaattt... :)
This program works quite well. I have tried Xwin32, Mobaxterm, and Xming and they do not work as good as VcXsrv. VcXsrv ii faster than Xwin32, it more stable than Mobaxterm, and it just works unlike Xming.
