I've initiated the discussion on MSDN:http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winappswithhtml5/thread/72ceca09-ab4a-4689-896c-6c86697333d6.

I found that the RDP ActiveX control seems to be a black box. It uses well but sometimes there would be some strange errors.

Today I encountered another error: I connect to a remote Win8 Pro machine through the RDP ActiveX control on another Win8 Pro, when I played a HD video for about a few seconds, the RDP session will be disconnected. The reason is as what the title said: because of a protocol error (0x112f) the remote session will be disconnected... I've made some search but got no correct solution. It seems that the issue might lie in the resolution, but I am not sure.

The most strange thing for me was that if I play the HD with Windows media player, it works well. But if the HD video is played with Win8 Video app, the issue occurred.

The following thread made a long discussion: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itprogeneral/thread/4523ce86-9a0b-4e6c-90d1-225ddda67ce5/. But it has no good to my issue.

Other articles suggested to set the RDP attribute bitmapcachepersistenable to false, but it also doesn't help.

Does any one know how to resolve it?

Thank you all.

Does anybody know something about it? The strangest thing here is that if I play the HD with Windows media player, it works well. But if the HD video is played with Win8 Video app, the issue occurred. Thank you very much! –  B0L May 8 '13 at 8:32
For Microsoft's RDP sample, this is also bug.code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Remote-Desktop-app-461567af –  B0L May 10 '13 at 2:08

1 Answer 1

The width and height of RDP session is better to be a even number, otherwise, it may cause problems, especially you are connecting to non-Windows server version.

Can you give more info? Why does this matter? What resources back this up? Have you tested it? What happens if it's not an even number? –  Canadian Luke Jun 18 '14 at 19:07
Even if you're right (which I don't think you are - source, please), this has nothing to do with RDP protocol errors disconnecting a Windows-to-Windows RDP session. –  HopelessN00b Jun 18 '14 at 19:39
