Office 2013 won't run via Nomachine Terminal Server (virtual desktop)

On both Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04, with Crossover 16, I have Office 2013 installed and working fine, as long as its accessed on display :0 (physical display).

On those same machines, installing the latest Nomachine Terminal Server, and starting a virtual desktop session - if I launch Excel 2013, (1) it takes several minutes to launch, and (2) when it opens, the screen is black. Session is running in X11 Vector graphics mode.

I'll be reporting issue to Nomachine as well, but just thought I'd post here in case there is a known workaround.


did you raise a Support Ticket, for that ?.

as an aside, Team Viewer does block the remote screen ( black it's background )

  • is your issue that, or the actual Office Screen blacked out ?.

Do not use Team Viewer. This was specifically the Excel window that was black.

I did not raise support issue with Codeweavers, but I will.

I do have an open case with Nomachine, and they are looking at it currently.
