comment Windows 7 Remote Desktop Connection Save Credentials not working
If i did own RoyalTS: my question still stands. Especially for people who are have never been able to solve this problem for the last five years; and came to SuperUser hoping for a solution.

Unfortunately RoyalTS doesn't handle full-screen, 32-bit color, is a separate download. And switching to another client doesn't solve the problem in this client.

@harrymc Yes. Windows 7 connecting to <= Server 2003 R2 works. Windows 7 connecting to >= Server 2008 fails. (See Appendix C in the question)

@ScottChamberlain Yes. Client, and Servers all joined to the same Windows Server 2003 R2 hosted domain.

@harrymc Windows 7 client connecting to Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows 2012 server. The added screenshot just added says "RDP 7.1". It's all one domain here (avatopia.com). It does not fail when connecting to Server 2000, 2003, or 2003 R2 (all client connection attempts from same Windows 7 client machine - again, on the same domain as all the servers)

comment How to configure ShrewSoft VPN to connect to Cisco VPN Server?
@alsadk Sure, why not. i'm not the one who decides Cisco's terminology; i'm just the one that wants them dead.

comment How to allow local LAN access while connected to Cisco VPN?
+1 for Mac client; which doesn't apply to me. And while this command might work, the Cisco client might delete it shortly after being created (the Cisco client seems to prevent anyone from changing routes)

comment Where does Windows 8 store user-mode crash minidumps?
@harrymc No, what i was saying is that i had already created the registry key. It did not effect any change, and did not affect the behaviour. Updated question with screenshot of regedit showing key

comment Cannot install Windows 8 because it can't create a new partition
It sounds like you can't convince Windows to purge current partitions. i had trouble convincing Windows to delete the special System Reserved partition. i can't remember how i solved it; enough selecting, and deleting, and purging, and removing. But i suggest the brute force approach. Download Western Digital's hard-drive tools, and tell it to Write all zeros to the drive. That will get rid of every partition. That way Windows can't refuse.

@ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED Even with Process Monitor running, looking for any Path containing dmp, and all file activity from dwwin.exe, i see no dump files being created.

@0xC0000022L The event viewer shows events from Windows Error Reporting show, "Attached Files: ..., ..., C:\Users\ian\AppData\Local\Temp\WERD655.tmp.mdmp", which, unfortunately, is not there.

Where did you find them on your system? (i've checked two locations) What which settings for WER crash dumps do you have turned on? (i've checked 3 settings)

comment BSOD - meaning of bugcheck?
On the other hand, you don't want to be updating drivers willy-nilly. Sometimes the latest and greatest has bugs that haven't been found yet. i prefer to trust WHQL certified drivers (off Windows Update). But if you're having a problem with something, you have no choice but to update the drivers.

comment BSOD - meaning of bugcheck?
It's not safe to assume that. Microsoft only has drivers that manufacturers submit to WHQL for WHQL testing. In my case, that meant a network chipset driver that was ten years old, rather than the one created last year. Realtek never bothered to submit it to Microsoft; so Windows Update won't have it. That's why you'll have to go to the manufacturers - sometimes. My motherboard's USB3.0 chipset has no drivers on Windows Update; i had to go to their web-site. nVidia doesn't always update WHQL drivers. Sometimes even motherboard chipset drivers.
