I believe you need the version of .NET included with XP SP3 or Vista SP1 (can't remember what version that is)

As long as you have the right version of .NET, EasyPrint will work with the XP SP2 (two) package.

TSC 6.1 is the current version for Windows.

To all of the persons posting requests to have RDP 6.1 on Server 2003 and/or on Windows XP x64, can you please explain what feature of RDP 6.1 you would need on these SKUs? Please add a brief description of the usage scenario for you/your business for these features.
Is there any way to always trust a computer you are connecting to, instead of have the "Do you trust the computer you are connecting to" dialog popup everytime. It is very annoying to users that are using the ActiveX control to connect to one server frequently.
There are a few things you can do to avoid the prompt:
1. if your are connecting to a Server, then you can deploy SSL certificates on it so that clients get server authentication and don't see this prompt.
2. Can't your clients also check the box "Don't show this warning again for connection to this computer" the first time they see the prompt?
3. If the clients are connecting through RDP files that you published, you should also ensure they are signed too.
Your second option would be perfect if that checkbox existed.
Joe, What OS versions are your server and client running?
Server - 2003
Client - XP or Vista (in general)
Would it be possible for you to email the exact UI you are seeing? I can't paste UI into this box but i think you should be able to do it if you sign in and send email to tsblog.
