Blank Screen

I've been trying to get this Orbx Cloud Game Console up and running. Initially I was timing out on the page, but that was because I hadn't configured the ports to open up. Then I had the wrong GUID, so I Remote Desktopped into it and copied that down into the link.

After all this, I visit the link and what should greet me? A blank grey square!

Clicking the "i" in the corner displays that it's unencrypted and that it has a high-speed connection (though it doesn't appear to be transmitting anything).

I'm tempted to use the ADSK one, but it needs 300gb storage space, and I'm hesitant to pay that much money per month.

What am I doing wrong?

Tell me if you need more info; I'm again hesitant to grab a screenshot if I don't have to because time is money!

Okay, I figured out the issue; I should have seen that thread below!

You have to use a link that includes START=cmd.exe to get a command console to pop up, and from there you can launch anything else that you like (after having installed it via RDP of course).

I made my own write-up that you can find here: http://forums.datarealms.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=45537

It's clears up some of the details left out of the official guide.

It also shows a really handy trick (that I hope for the love of all that is good and holy they do not remove) that allows the same video to be streamed to multiple computers, allowing for cooperative play on single-computer games.
