Some programs, particularly games, may give the error message 'this program cannot be run remotely' when trying to use them under SoftXpand.

1. When this message pops up, do not close its window.
2. Start Task Manager, go to “Applications”. Right click the application in title, select “Go To Process”:
3. Take note of the process name, as highlighted by Task-Manager:
