> Objet : Wrong colour depth on Windows viewer
> Just downloaded and installed RealVNC 3.3.7 on two elderly Windows98se machines.
> Now they are both set to have 1024x768x16 desktop but when I view one from the other I
> only get 8bit graphics.
> Connection Info gives:
> Desktop 1024x768x16
> Using depth 8
> same software installed on other machines gives a 16 depth and works fine.  I previously
> was using TightVNC and have left that installed.  Would there be any registry settings I
> should change?  I can only find a command line option to use 8-bit and not to force 16-bit
> and I have checked that the shortcut does not have this 8-bit option and even run directly
> from ProgramFiles using WindowsExplorer.
> Any help welcomed...
> Oh yes just tried using my old TightVNC viewer onto RealVNC server with same machines
> and it goes 16bit depth... strange??
