I am using an old pc with Windows CE 4.2 Pro installed and I want to connect it in a windows 2003 server. However I need a Remote Desktop Connection to do so (duh) which did not come with this windows (or it was removed, not really sure). I have tried to install a regular mstsc.exe or even ones for mobile phones, but when I try to run it, it gives me a "This is not a Windows CE application" error.

Any ideas, guys?

For those that are in the same situation as I am, I've found this code.google.com/p/rdesktop-ce/downloads/list I didnt try it myself yet, will post back with results –  user895822 Mar 16 '12 at 2:21
The mstsc.exe on mobile phones would be an ARM (or possibly a MIPS or Super-H) executable and that's why it would not work. –  ultrasawblade Mar 16 '12 at 3:05
