Hi, home destop is XPProSP3, laptop(home) is also XPProSP3, work desktop is Vista SP1. Ever since SP3 install on Home desktop I have to reboot home desktop to regain RDC. If I logoff today and try and reconnect tomorrow, "can't connect to remote computer" Is there a timeout setting or some fix regarding this new RDC?
my RDP users lose their in session printers. When they log off and log back on the printers are not reconnected. I have to reboot the server for the printers to reconnect in a session. When the problem begins, users currently logged on will keep their printers but as each user is timed out or loggs off they lose their printer when they log back on. This problem is intermintent it is not happening all the time. It just starts happening sometimes and I can not find a pattern or cause. When it happens, I have to reboot the server for the printers to start reconnecting at logon. After the reboot, it may be fine for several hours or days. Then it will do it again. Today it has done it several times. Any ideas as to what may be causeing this?
After installing SP3 I can no longer connect to the Console session when using the Remote Desktop mmc. It now creates and new RDP session which doesn't allow me to connect to the active Retrospect session. It's still using the same Remote Desktop mmc version 5.2.3790.1830 and the other IT computer that doesn't have SP3 connects properly. Does anybody have an idea what changed in SP3 that could cause these new sessions?
I hope motherboard manufactures collude with ram manufacturers to make the twenty four PETAbyte requirements of windows 8 affordable to those who make less than USD $60,000 annually.
