hummingbird exceed in terminal server

I have Hummingbird Exceed 2008 (v.13) installed on Windows 2003 Std with Terminal Server.  The xterm runs fine when I'm logged on directory from the server. However, when I'm logged on to the server via RDP, the xterm display slows down when mouse over it. Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanks in advance for helping!

I've downgraded the Exceed to V10.0 and it worked!
This likely means that you application is running at higher display settings than your RDP session is.

1) Open "Remote Desktop" and go to the Display section.  Note the resolution
2) go to the "Experience" tab and lower the speed setting to whatever is the slowest of the two ISP connections involved (your remote one, and your office one).

OPTIONAL (if the steps above don't resolve it)
3) On the server go to the properties of the shortcut or executable you are running, then go to the "compatibility" tab and check "Run in 256 colors")

Well that may not be the case.
The key thing is to understand how the application draws on the screen. Depending how it is done, performance will be simply terrible (some Java apps are known for that).
If you change the screen settings as per the post above and it does not work at all, I would try testing the app with Windows Server 2008 R2 as TS is MUCH improved there and may help with the screen redrawing.
Another option is to download a third party tool like Ericom Blaze and see if it improves the performance (in many cases it does). Google for that name and you will find it.

I've tried change the display and connection settings but didn't work as desired. The speed improves when I change the display color to 256 but the Cadence wouldn't run as it requires min. 15-bit color run. And changing the connection speed type didn't do much either.

I will try either upgrade to Server 2008 or Ericom Blaze.  Right now I'm using Exceed 13.0. I may also try downgrade the Exceed to 10.0 which worked fine on another server running Server 2003 Standard.

Thank you all for your advise!

I've just installed the Ericcom Blaze. The background and most applications seem to load much faster, except the Xterm (Exceed). It actually runs a bit slower with the Ericom Blaze installed on the server.  Well, I have two other options, upgrade to Server 2008 or downgrade the Exceed to 10.0
