Hi, when I run the Android Control.exe file on my windows it opens 2 things:
1. a black window which quicly disapears (seems its calling DroidATScreen-1.1.jar which FYI is trying to open with Java)
2. the "Ultimate touch screen control for Android" window.. which is the one with the keys
Doesnt open my Nexus 5 Screen on the laptop.

Nexus5, USB Debugging is enabled, connected via USB cable.
Do i need to do any installations on the PC?

This is hilarious! The screen died on my rooted 2013 Kindle Fire 7 about a month ago. I knew it was still alive inside (could see the files and was even able to reroot and wipe with the KFSOWI rooting tool), but with no screen I kinda gave up on it.

Then today I tried Android Control and not only can i "see" the tablet, but the touchscreen works! Of course, gestures are hit and miss (pun intended); i can only approximate where i should touch based on what i see on the pc.

Anyway, pretty fun and funny. Not sure what i'll do with it, but there are possibilities now--like trying something really reckless! Thanks!
