The wizard cannot configure remote desktop connection settings? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    When trying to connect to my work Small Buisness Server 2008 from my laptop that has Windows 10 it gives me the following error...

    " The wizard cannot configure remote desktop connection settings. Make sure that the client version of Remote Desktop Protocol RDP 6.0 or later is installed on this computer "

    I have no issue getting to my server page using Windows 8.1 or 7.

    I have used the compability mode for my login page but its a no go.

    I believe it uses Active x and to my knowledge that has been removed with Windows 10.

    I have tried installing RDP 6.0 or higher manually but it wont except it.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Thank you so much:)

  • Hi,

    Ensure you have the latest SBS 2008 update rollup:

    Also, install available updates on Windows 10. It might be helpful for fixing some known issues.

    Use the classic IE not the Edge. And put the URL of the web site in the trusted site zone. 

    Best Regards,
