How to access Windows VM

From several option, there are two fastest and easiest. SPICE and RDP.

First of all you need to use Console from Horizon dashboard (https://cf2.cloudferro.com/project/instances/) to enter password for your windows user: "Administrator"

 

Click on the "Send Ctrl-Alt-Delete"

Now click on "Sign in" (operating the mouse arrow is tricky, because you will see 2 arrows (not visible on the above screenshot). Unfortunatelly Windows graphical mode is not fully compatible with Spice (Linux doesn't have this issue).

For the best experience with mouse pointing we recommend to start from a corner (i.e right bottom) and do slow moves. Your patient will be revarded soon. Just after you enter your new administrator password - you may forget about this console and start using RDP (Remote Desktop) without any mismath. But if you decide to conitnue using SPICE, at bottom of this page there is a 3-clicks manual how to solve this problem. Just you need to logon to windows desktop first.

 

and now "OK"

Unfortunately the SPICE console will not accept keyboard at this stage.

You have to click "Cancel".

And click on "Send Ctrl-Alt-Delete" again

Now you can enter new password.

When you set up new password press Enter.

From now you will be able to access VM using RDP protocol (user: Administrator).

 

If you decide to continue using SPICE at the moment, to fix doubled mouse cursors issue - please login into windows desktop and follow 2 steps:

1. Run mouse setup (from Control Panel or just click on search icon on a task bar, type: main.cpl and press Enter)

2. Turn off (unclick) "Enchance pointer precision", click "Apply" button and close window with "OK".

 

Now, both mouse cursors will follow each other smoothly.
