I recently upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate to Win 10 Pro. After upgrade, I can only start Remote Desktop once if done shortly after a boot/reboot. I believe it's only a matter of several minutes, but can't say for sure yet.


Shortly after rebooting, Remote Desktop will start and function correctly. If I close that connection and attempt to restart, the "loading" circle appears for about 5 seconds, then disappears. Nothing happens after that.


The mstsc.exe process starts, but nothing happens. A new process will start for each successive time I attempt to start remote desktop. I've stopped the processes and tried again with same results.


Thanks for any assistance.
