I'm trying to make my iPad the primary monitor on a PC. Every application I've seen so far requires that a User log into Windows first for the application to run, and then it will connect to your iPad as an extended monitor only after you get to your desktop.
On the apps that I've tried, I've changed the software that normally runs as an application on the PC into a background service that now loads upon startup. I used a software called NSSM for that. The service seems to work somewhat because when I plug the iPad into the PC at the Windows Logon Screen, the iOS app then changes from its "waiting for connection" state to a black screen; it recognizes the PC is connected. That's where I'm stuck - on the black screen. Anyone had any experience with this or know what I may be missing?
The iOS apps I've used so far are Duet Display and XDisplay. They work as advertised but I'm trying to accomplish something outside of their scope. The results are the same during testing on both of the apps. The stipulations on my setup are:
1) iPad has to be a wired (non-network) connection to the PC
2) iPad has to work as a display on the Windows Logon Screen.
3) cannot remove the Windows Logon Screen. I.e. No Auto startup to desktop
Any helpful input is appreciated. Thanks.
