That's not OMG, that's desired behavior.  Just imagine what would happen
if uninstalling Microsoft Office would mean all your Word and Excel
documents would get deleted as well.  Same here.  Uninstall purges the
program files, but not the data.

> so the desinstallation is not clean !

To purge the data from the particular user profile, you either have to
remove the registry keys under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Obviously
Nice\x2goclient (in case of a standard x2goclient Windows installation),
or delete the ".x2goclient" folder from the user's home directory (if
you were using x2goclient in portable mode).
This is something you have to do *per user*, so if you logged in as
Administrator to (un)install x2goclient, you need to log off, and log
back on again as the user you were running x2goclient under, *then* run
regedit *as the user* and remove the above-specified tree.

Also, you were using an outdated 4.x release.  Please try 4.0.2.0
instead of 4.0.1.3.

Hi, I am the Windows maintainer for X2Go Client.

1st of all, I am sorry you ran into this bug. It is on my to-fix list.

2nd, this is a duplicate of bug 109. I am still learning the debian
bug tracking system, I will mark this as a duplicate when I get home
from work.

As stefan mentioned, the settings are stored per-user. This is why we
do not delete them.

Deleting settings vs deleting session profiles may be another discussion.

As Stefan mentioned, you have to do this per user.

To avoid deleting your session profiles, just follow these per-user
instructions instead to fix this specific bug/setting. They assume you
are not in portable mode. They are mentioned in bug 109 now.

1. Open regedit (you do not need admin rights.)
2. Browse to the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Obviously
Nice\x2goclient\settings
3.Then set "useintx" to "true"

The bug is still present in 4.0.2.0. However, we still advise
upgrading to 4.0.2.0, largely because of the vulnerabilities in VcXsrv
which have been patched.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I have come across this problem as well, but my situation is a bit
different (odd.)  I originally setup the x2go client on my work laptop and
it connects just fine.  I wanted to add it to my personal laptop (both run
Win7, but home is regular and work is Professional) and that is when I run
into this issue.

I've tried uninstalling and removing the registry entries for the
application, no-go.  Is there a workaround for my situation?

Thank you,

David Christensen
