Thanks to stackoverflow.com I found a great article and now I can now reliably remote desktop from a Windows 10 client via RDP to a host system with Spike and Windows 10. This is also a cure for remote operation of various other software using OpenGL that used to crash for me.
This was done by changing the group policy for the local machine to enable the graphics card for remote desktop. To change the setting run “gpedit.msc” then navigate to “Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Remote Session Environment” and then enable “Use hardware graphics adapters for all Remote Desktop Services sessions”. Alternatively modify “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services” and set the DWORD “bEnumerateHWBeforeSW” to 1. Note that I had to download the latest graphics card driver and restart for all to work as the stock Windows driver wasn’t good enough.
