Trying to open a windows standalone exe from another windows via SSH. but there's no video.

I can run the exe via SSH but it only shows on task manager with very little RAM usage so I assume there’s no graphics being loaded. How could I solve this issue?

  • I’ve tried using -X and X11forwarding with no luck.
  • Works well with calc.exe, explorer and that kind of apps but not with unity standalone exe’s
  • I also tried running a bat file from ssh so it opens the exe, but same result.

Note: running it locally works perfectly, even if I start it from cmd.

Not really related to Unity. Have a look at this answer. I think the explorer and calc are special exceptions since the explorer actually IS the desktop environment of your PC. And assuming you run Win10 the calculator is now a precached “app”.
