Supported Remote Desktop Connection Versions for Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,<o:p></o:p>

    Our company
    made a decision to sunset our proprietary software support for clients that are outside of Microsoft mainstream cycle. <o:p></o:p>

    I need to confirm that XP and Vista Remote Desktop Connections are supported by Microsoft
    (I do believe the earliest RDC version in XP is 6.1.7600).<o:p></o:p>

    For example, let’s say a client has 2000 workstations / laptops. All end-users access their applications via Remote Desktop Connection (Let’s say 10 servers
    in a leveraged environment).. The client plans oin upgrading
    thier servers from 2003 to Server 2012... Would the XP machines running RDC 6.1.7600 be supported
    in a 2012 environment? Will MS plan on developing a package?

    I am going to assume not.. since XP is out of mainstream <o:p></o:p>

    Thank You!<o:p></o:p>
