When I tried to run an application in full-screen mode, a message appeared which said "Splashtop Remote currently does not support applications that require direct screen access. Please reconfigure the application to run in windowed mode." Why?

When applications that support 3D rendering are running in full-screen mode, such as Windows Media Center, their graphics engines are drawing directly to the computer's screen, as opposed to within a window on the screen ("windowed mode"). When an application is drawing directly to a full screen without copying the picture frame through the screen-rendering APIs of Microsoft® Windows®, Splashtop currently cannot capture the desktop screen. This situation frequently occurs with games that are running in full-screen mode on the remote computer. Configure the application to run in windowed mode, then try again.
