I can't find the source code for the virtual display driver.

Post by pillose »

I'm curious about how the virtual display works, so I attempted to understand the code for the winvnc.

Although I was able to locate the 'UVncVirtualDisplay.dll' file in the UltraVnc installer, I couldn't find its corresponding source code.

Where can I find this source code?

Thanks,

Pillose

May I ask if there is a particular reason why the source code for the virtual driver that works with UltraVNC is not open source, despite the UltraVNC is distributed under the GPL license?

Also, could you let me know if there is a document that you referred to when you made the virtual driver?

The virtual driver was made for another project, license doesn't allow me to distribute the code.
But 'm allowed to reuse the driver it for ultravnc.
A GPL project can use a non GPL driver no need to make the source public. Driver and UltraVNC are 2 seperated projects.

Check the IndirectDisplay in the DDK
