I don't remember the exact steps to fix, but it involved poking around on the net looking for some xMing fonts to install. Looks like you need to do the same for Exceed.
I tried "xclock" and "xeyes". those tools are working fine, i will have the problem only if there any required second layer sub-gui coming up.
I am using Exceed as the client to accept X gui, using putt to log into the server first, then export DISPLAY variable, then run runInstaller, the display will come to my desktop, but if there are any 2nd layer small window, then I am not able to see or click on the second layer window.
X window package is installed. I am running runInstaller to install Oralce database, I did not even start with any configurations, not using any options, only runInstaller.

For instance, if i click "cancel" buttom, the 2nd small window comes up, it is supposed to ask me for the confirmation, the problem is that I couuld not see or click the confirmation.
943714 wrote:I understand that. My question about why Exceed was just a side observation. My main point was the parallel between your error with Exceed and my error with xMing. Is it possible that there is a font set for Exceed that you need to install?
Just tried that, safe mode without networking. No luck, the same.
I understand what you are saying, but Exceed is our standard here, I have other users and they are using it as well. I still need to fix it.
It sounds weird...
any other suggestion?
