SPICE window does not display correctly on a Windows 7 64-bit system

Solution Verified - Updated -


Cannot connect to a VM using Spice protocol.

The SPICE client seems to start up, but then spontaneously closes with a disconnect message:

Error message: "Remote Desktop <hostname> disconnected.  Target Desktop host name/IP: <hostname> Details: The client could not connect to the remote computer. Remote connections might not be enabled or a network problem is preventing your connection."
