We have been seeing an increased interest in temporarily using our SpaceMouse devices in remote environments due to the working transitions that many people are facing during this difficult situation. We found out that there is a way to use the SpaceMouse with Microsoft’s RDP tool when enabling RemoteFX on both, the host and the client.
Note: RemoteFX is only available on Windows 10 or Windows Server 2008 and higher. Here you can find a document that explains how to enable RemoteFX.
Note: it is not possible to use a wireless device unless it is connected with a cable. The Universal Receiver is not recognized.
Additionally, the CadMouse cannot be transferred to the remote machine. Our CadMouse devices can be used in a remote setup, but only as a standard mouse and the driver (on the remote machine) won’t see it. This means the users will be able to use it, but they don’t have the possibilities to map the buttons or any other functionality that is provided through our driver.
