I upgraded to Windows 8 recently. After the upgrade, my favourite Remote Desktop tool, called Remote Desktop Organizer, doesn't work any longer. When I try to open a server, the icon simply stays red and nothing else happens. There is no error message.

Is this a known issue with this tool? If so, is there an update coming or is there an alternative tool that can be used?

According to the changelog… there is no mention of Windows 8 - I would think it is not supported. – Dave Nov 20 '12 at 9:57

After deep troubleshooting, I found out the problem was caused by a MS update (or better known as MS patch), specifically KB2592687, which updated the Remote Desktop client to version 8.0.

This caused the RDO application to stop working.

FYI, I am running Windows 7.

It helps in terms of understanding what happened. Unfortunately I don't think it's possible to downgrade to things that Windows 8 was born with :( – Niels Brinch Nov 29 '12 at 8:22

Get the new rdo here with Fix for patch

It's a little weird to just follow a link to an unknown page with just 2 links on it. It would be better if their main site had this information. Anyway, I took the risk and downloaded it, and it fixes the problem! – jj. Nov 4 '13 at 18:15
