There is also a version 1.1.6 if you are using Windows XP.  This appears to
be stable from what I can see but is also missing the Autoplace.  I also get
the problem with locking the screen causing vic video to freeze.

 I've replaced the vic.exe found in "C:\Documents and Settings\Natalia\Datos
 de programa\AccessGrid\local_services\VideoConsumerService" by another
 vic.exe (2.8-115 instead of 2.8-113), the latest, and i dont have this
 annoying problem, but I miss the autoplace functionality and.. what else?.

 How does people do to not to have this problem without this trick? It's
 when locking and unlocking the screen on the display PC, vic stops
 refreshing the video windows.

 It seems that this trick solves the problem but it produces some
 unstability?? I did this test with AGTK 2.2 and I dont feel confident in
 behaviour as I havent been working for long with it.

 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 Kind regards.
