I installed TightVNC 2.7.10 (from on a Win 7
desktop & a TightVNC  Ver 1.3.10 (from
on a Win XP laptop.

Reason I used older version on the Win XP is the version I got from the 1st link is in
.msi extension & can't install on Win XP so I decided to use an older version.

Both are on the same subnet with Windows Firewall turned off.  The Win XP laptop
could connect to the desktop & after entering password to login, the keyboard hits
& mouse clicks/movements produced no response, seems like readonly.

I certainly did not check on the "View Only" option.

Do I need "DFMirage mirror display driver"  (from ?
