(also posted on stackoverflow and server fault)
Finally switching from desktop to laptop at work. I use Remote Desktop quite a bit to access our server (Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard). I can access the server from the desktop (32 bit, Windows 7 Enterprise), but when I try from the new laptop (64 bit, Window 7 Enterprise), I go thru the login screen then I get the "Configuring remote session.." forever and the display never pops up. I'm admin everywhere, so that's not the issue.
Did a little research, but nothing I've read seems to relate to my situation. I have tried:
- renaming the mstsc in \windows\system32 to .OLD and running the 32-bit mstsc from \windows\SysWOW64. No joy.
- Connecting FROM the server to the laptop. Works fine.
Created a batch file:
@echo off set WinDir= start C:WindowsSysWow64mstsc.exe
Anybody else have this problem and found a solution?
