Re: [K12OSN] Scholastic Read 180 stumping me

There's an option to set the color depth for remote desktop connections.
On the command line, it would be -a 16 or -a 24 for the "better"

In the "Terminal Server Client" gui, it's on the "Display" tab.

Maybe the software is detecting this setting somehow.
