The VNC Server binaries we currently provide are 32-bit binaries and as such
the standard update capture mechanism doesn't work for most apps running on
Win64. The quickest workaround is to configure your VNC Server to poll for
updates, which will mean increased CPU usage by VNC Server, but will avoid
the update issues you are seeing.
