VNC Viewer: Question box "SelectObject to CompatibleDC failed"

VNC Viewer: Question box opens while trying to connect to another computer that has VNC services installed on it. You get the box that comes up and says; "SelectObject to CompatibleDC failed".

Log In


The error box that comes up after you try and log in.


This error box comes up because the computer that you are trying to connect to has hibernation and/or the windows firewall or a firewall is on blocking the VNC port 5900.

Open the port through your software firewall and make sure that hibernation is turned off.

Uncheck 'Enable hibernation" if it is checked.


Should work now.
