    Has anyone got Remote Desktops working in Vista Beta 2 ?
    Is so how please?

    I can't find TSMMC.MSC or an ADMINPAK msi on Longhorn Server Beta 2 CD

    Thanks

  2. In Windows Vista:
    Click Start > All Programs >
    Accessories > Remote Desktop Connection

    If its not available there Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run >
    type %systemroot%\system32\mstsc.exe

    If you are using the x64 Edition, type %systemroot%\sysWOW64\mstsc.exe

  3. Remote Desktop in Vista is teh suck. It's plain annoying.

    Andre, TWISTER is talking about the MMC snap-in from adminpak.msi that
    allows you to add several RDP connections and switch back and forth through
    them without opening additional windows. It's great, but I can't get it on
    Vista and that's disappointing. I assumed that it would be on the LH Server
    disk, but apparently it's not. You can always try copying the Remote
    Desktop MMC files from a machine with Adminpak installed, should be two
    files (a .msc and .dll) and register the dll. I made it work once on an
    older Vista build but it was all wonky, so yeah it probably isn't a good
    idea! :)

  4. Ahh Remote Desktops - the name of the MMC console. First appeared in Windows
    Server 2003 - gotta love it :eek:)
    Yeh, the workaround should be as simple as Brad says - copy over the two
    files, the *.msi and the *.dll and it should work (fingers crossed).

  5. I wasn't wrong:

    Is so how please?

    I just didn't answer the part about MMC snap in on Longhorn Server.

    Longhorn Server - Network Operating System
    Vista - Client Operating System

    I want to use RDC in vista beta 2 as well, but i would be connected to my
    vista box from my xp box using the built in RDC client. I've turned it on in
    vista and am not running the vista firewall, but on the xp box it won't
    connect at all. it says the server pc which would be vista the resources
    might be all used up or something else in the error window, i forget though.
    the ip was right as was the user log in for my pcs.

  7. It is really strange - I've tried so many things to screw around with RDC
    but nothing - changing IP's during connection, suddenly pulling out plugs,
    changing entire workgroup/domains, either way... it still connects and
    works. I've literally had *no* problems with Terminal Services or the RDC
    :eek:)

    Hey guys, I havent tested it, but I use MMC Remote Desktop all day long. I
    found this other app that works pretty well. Give this a try and see if it
    works with Vista. It may not, but I believe the source is available so
    people can mod what dosnt work.

    Worth a try
