Thinstuff Support

Thinstuff XP/VS Server Professional supports RemoteFX since Windows 7 SP1 (all editions).  However, this RemoteFX for Thinstuff Remote Desktop Server should not be mixed up with the Hyper-V RemoteFX 3D GPU virtualization.

RemoteFX is actually "just" a video stream (similar to MPEG) sent from the server to any modern Remote Desktop Client (recommended). The purpose of the Remote Desktop Server is to generate a "RemoteFX Video" in real time. This process requires a very powerful computing capability. Depending on the usage (VDI or Terminal Server) the server uses to CPU, GPU and special RemoteFX encoder hardware. 

Which GPUs are supported?

As far as we know these are the minimum requirements to be used with RemoteFX are:

  • DirectX 11.0 or later
  • WDDM 1.2 driver or later

Most of the latest graphics cards will support RemoteFX.

  1. Open your XP/VS Terminal Server Administrator and go to "Options" in menu bar.
  2. After that click on "Enable RemoteFX for XP/VS Terminal Services".
  3. Reboot your machine.
