Many of our customers use our Virtuoso software in combination with the
windows emulation product from OpenText named "Exceed on Demand". To maximize performance between the two
tools, we have some recommendations:

Virtuoso IC6.1.x is a 24-bit true color application, whereas Virtuoso IC5.1.41 is a 8-bit color application. It is therefore necessary for all visuals, including all native Linux, or Exceed onDemand to support 24-bit planes.
We are using EOD for 6 years now and it works very well.
However with IC5 and EOD6, unless you set server visual to pseudocolor or 8bit color plane we see mouse tracks in icfb.
We tried using EOD7 but saw the issues as mentioned.
EOD8 is out now and we will be testing that soon with IC6
Just an update from OpenText. The fix is expected in their next patch for Exceed onDemain which is expected late-May or early-June. The release version number will be 7.0.5.
