Remote Desktop Connection Kills Java App

I have a Java application (Swing) running on one PC (Windows XP). When I connect to this machine from a second PC (also Windows XP) using Remote Desktop Connection, the Swing application terminates abruptly. I built the application with JBuilder X and both machines run JDK 1.4.2.

This is a showstopper for me and my group. We need to log in remotely and run Java applications. Any suggestions?

Note: I am not using PCAnywhere.

Moving to the Swing forum.

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

I have seem similar ( but not exact ) problem related to dual monitors. I turned out to be because of matrox graphics driver and jre 1.4.2 combination. We upgraded to JRE1.4.2_04 and it got fixed.
I agree. Here's the link:
