    Hi!

    Some softwares let you connect multiple physical
    desktops(Keyboard/Video/Mouse) combo's to a single machine.. basically
    exporting logical desktops to separate physical d/tops..

    Am researching how to enable multiple interactive desktops,multiplex
    the GDI calls to the respective display drivers and etc( basically how
    to achieve the above said).

    Any ideas/pointers would be greatly helpful.

    thanks,
    Elam.

    Thanks Stephan. I'm looking into the info you've pointed out.

    From what I know, terminal services requires server editions of
    Windows, whereas I am trying to achieve multi-physical desktop support
    in client Windows OSes(2K Workstation,XP etc).

    From what I researched so far, you can accomplish this by writing a
    "Router" Display driver which then routes the GDI calls to the
    respective Display drivers based on the Window station of the calling
    app.
    It's still at a crude level and I'd eagerly take any inputs at this
    stage.

    thanks,
    Elam.

  3. Please note that I am by far not a display/desktop driver expert. I
    even don't know how exactly XP implements its desktop sharing feature.

    I was hoping other would add more info here.
