We are pleased to announce the availability of Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 for downlevel operating systems on Wednesday, October 28th. KB969084 provides a detailed description of available functionality and provides links to the download package. This follows the previous post here that described in detail the functionality available using Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 on Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP SP3.

The Windows XP SP3 Multilingual User Interface (MUI) package release is also coming soon. Stay tuned for this announcement in a few weeks.

Update: If you have previously installed the fix in KB968358 (You cannot use a mouse to select combo box items in a RemoteApp program that you connect to through Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 6.1), installing RDC 7.0 will undo the fix.  We'll let you know when this is corrected.

Update 2: The Multilingual User Interface (MUI) package for XP SP3 is now available for download. Please follow the KB article 969085 for package description and download information.

  • Will there be a new client package for Windows Server 2003?

  • How can you tell wich version is RDC 7.0? If you for instance look at "Anout" on a windows 7 RC it says "6.1.7100" and a "Remote desktop protocol 7.0 supported" note.  Is it the protocol version that indicates the RDC client version? (my XP says 6.0.6001, Remote desktop protocol 6.1 supported)

  • In previous comment it should say "About" not "Anout". Sorry.

  • Please make it available on 64-bit XP client and Server 2003 (32-bit and 64-bit). At least 64-bit XP please since it's a client OS even though it's built on Server 2003 codebase. Please please please.

  • I second the question raised by Patric... If this is RDC 7.0 - why is the shell version listed as 6.1.7100?

  • Is there any time frame in fixing the issue that was addressed in KB968358?  There was an extremely long wait to get it fixed the first time.

  • Please support 64-bit Windows XP TS team.

  • hi,

    i was accessing a windows 7 machine from a windows xp machine without any issues until i intalled rdp 7 on the xp machine and not it fails to connect. what are the most common causes for this? How do i uninstall rdp 7?

  • What's the status of RDP 7 on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition?

  • After installing RDC 7.0 on multiple XP SP3 machines it is difficult to connect to remote app on a 2008 Standard box using a remote desktop gateway.  I continute to receive the error: Your computer can't connect to the remote computer because an error occured on the remote computer that you want to connect to. Contact your network administrator for assistance.  

    If I try to connect enough times it will finally let me in. Vista and Windows 7 machines can connect w/o any problem.

  • Removing RDC 7.0 resolves the issues that I reported above.  

    To answer the question about how to uninstall RDC 7.0, from Add/Remove programs, click Show updates, find Hotfix for Windows XP (KB969084), click remove.

  • I'm having the same problem as Neil, although going back to RDC 6.1 isnt an option as we need the Easy Print to be non-dependent on .NET.  Presumably there is a gateway configuration issue with regards to certain clients (possibly CredSSP, but couldnt get that to work), are there any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Ross

  • Client -> XP+SP3+all fixes

    Serwer -> 2003+all fixes

    When I try remote control (tsadmin.exe) I have strange errors. When downgrade to Kb925876 everything works again.

  • Please release the RDP 7.0 Client also for Windows Server 2003!!!!
