For users who tried our beta virtual display tool

In the past, we offered an additional beta virtual display tool upon request. Please note that following the update to Splashtop Streamer version, any virtual displays that were previously created using the older tool will be deactivated. Please re-configure these displays using our newly introduced feature.
