The 'Blank Screen' option doesn't work if Windows is running under VMware GSX Server 3.1.

The Windows 2003 SP1 server is running under VMware GSX 3.1 server with VMware tools installed - so the video adapter is installed by VMware tools.

The remote client is running under WinXP SP2 - *no* VMware.
