i have one maching that when i launch remote desktop i get an error that is not descriptive at all it is as follows:

AppName: mstsc.exe AppVer: 6.0.6001.18589 ModName: mstscax.dll
ModVer: 6.0.6001.18589 Offset: 0015c273

now if i don't chose to close or "DO NOT SEND" if i just leave the message open i can use remote desktop as soon as i respond to the message it shuts my remote desktop down. I am using windows xp SP3 remoting into a windows 2008 terminal services machine. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Skip,

You can try this, it worked for me

- Stop the process mstsc.exe
- Create a new folder "RDP" in %windir%
- Copy "mstsc.exe" and "mstscax.dll" from "C:\Windows\ $NtServicePackUninstall$" to this folder
- Copy the folder "en-US" "from C:\Windows\System32" to this folder
- Copy the "mstsc.exe.mui" and "mstscax.dll.mui" from "C:\Windows\
$NtServicePackUninstall$" to "C:\Windows\RDP\en-US"
- Change RDP shortcut to ""C:\Windows\RDP\mstsc.exe"
Some people think technology has the answers - Kevin Mitnick
