    Hi Tyler,

    Hi Rcan,
    No, it is for XP SP3 and Vista. And it has many new features, like:

    Web Single Sign-On (SSO) and Web forms-based authentication
    Access to virtual desktop pools by using RD Connection Broker
    Status & disconnect system tray icon
    RD Gateway-based device redirection enforcement
    RD Gateway system and logon messages
    RD Gateway background authorization & authentication
    RD Gateway idle & session time-outs
    NAP remediation with RD Gateway
    Windows Media Player redirection
    Bidirectional audio
    Multiple monitor support

    Using it on Server 2003 for some days now, no issues. MSTSC.EXE even seems
    to have less mem usage than 6.0.

    Hi Tyler,

    Where do you find / know which files to copy to which directories? Have you found a way to install to Server 2003?

    What manual process did you use?

    Here's how to do it manually

    Witness these skills:

    (or, witness why Microsoft should just make an installer for win 2003 already...)

    • Open the installer executable with a program like winzip or 7-zip.
    • Make a temporary folder and extract the sp3gdr directory there. Ignore the other files in the installer.
    • Copy the *.mui files into the folder C:\WINDOWS\system32\en-US. Some of these files are new, and some of them already exists in this folder. You should first make backups of the files you are overwriting!
    • For the remaining files: These live in two places - C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache and C:\WINDOWS\system32. The dllcache directory is hidden, but if you type that folder name into the file explorer, it will take you there. Again, some of these files are new and some of them already exist in those two directories. Make backup copies of the files you're going to overwrite. Now go to the temporary folder and select all the files and copy them. Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache and paste the files there and click "yes to all." Then quickly go to C:\WINDOWS\system32 and paste the files there, too, and click "yes to all."
    • If you don't do this part fast enough, windows will silently put back the original file versions. Wait 5-10 sec and make sure it hasn't done this - check if the file sizes match your backup copies. If you weren't fast enough you'll have to try again.
    • If a dialog box pops up that talks about Windows File Protection and asks you to insert your windows cd, just press cancel. You want to keep the new unrecognized files.
    • That's it. Run remote desktop client as you would normally.
