[FFmpeg-user] I can't find any video devices on the Windows 7 source system

I would like to stream a desktop from one computer running Windows 7 to
another to  on a LAN running Debian 8 to show an application that is on
the screen from the first computer through to the second computer that
is connected to a projector. The application can't easily run on the
Debian system connected to the projector because the software wasn't
built for the operating system.

I can't find any video devices on the Windows source system. I have
command output attached.
