NETWORK DISPLAY MULTI MONITOR SOFTWARE
- Windows Desktop Extension (x10-sion)
- Windows Desktop Duplication (mirroring/cloning)
- KVM (keyboard and mouse remoting) supported by Windows VIEWER
PRIMARY MACHINE & SECONDARY MACHINE
At least two machines are required: PRIMARY machine and SECONDARY machine. All machines must be connected to a LAN (Local Area Network). Network protocol TCP/IP needs to be supported. The connection can be over USB (e.g. tethering), via LAN-cable or wireless.
PRIMARY MACHINE (Windows PC, laptop and tablet): spacedesk DRIVER
The primary machine runs a Windows service and the WDDM driver. This appears as an additional graphics adapter to Windows 10 and an additional monitor connection of the existing graphics adapter on Windows 7 and 8.1. This additional virtual graphics adapter or display connector can mirror any other Windows display screen or extend the Windows Desktop. spacedesk software on Primary Machine is capturing the screen content, compressing it and transmitting it over the LAN (Local Area Network) to the spacedesk secondary machines.
- Windows 10 (WDDM IddCx Indirect Display Driver)
- Windows 8.1 (WDDM Filter Hook Display Driver)
SECONDARY MACHINE (PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone and devices)
- Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10
- Android (> version 4.1)
- iOS (> version 9.3)
- Any other: HTML5 Web browsers ( Chrome (> 16), Safari (> 5.1) Internet Explorer (> 10), Opera (> 27) )
LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN)
- TCP/IP v4
- TCP/IP v6 (future versions only)
- No encryption transmitting data between client and server. Therefore all information transmitted is potentially available to everybody in the network.

SPACEDESK DRIVER SOFTWARE for Windows PRIMARY PC (server)
Windows 10 version 1607 (Build 14393) and above
Current version: Beta III v0.9.45
Two Antivirus software products currently have faulty filter driver software which crash the Windows 10 PC with BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) when spacedesk is present:
Kaspersky keyboard filter driver: klkbdflt.sys (seems to be confused by spacedesk virtual keyboard driver)
Avast network filter driver: aswArPot.sys (has a USB Tethering bug doing network transfers over RNDIS)
splashtop wired XDisplay needs to be uninstalled (it still installs an incompatible old legacy WDDM Filter Hook driver which cannot coexist with other similar products like spacedesk even though it doesn’t even seem to use this old driver any more).
In case of problems, please update the Windows graphics driver to the most recent version using Windows update or manufacturer’s website (AMD, Nvidia or Intel)
spacedesk does not support Windows 7 any more (Windows 7 life cycle has expired). At your own risk spacedesk Windows 8.1 driver can still be installed on Windows 7.
