Windows 7 RDP Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using RDP on a Windows 7 Pro edition computer connecting to Windows Server 2003 SP 2 running terminal services.  When I try to take remote control of a session, I get the follwoing error:  "Because of a protocol error, this session will be disconnected.  Please try connecting to the remote computer again."  Then my RDP connection is lost.  I have just recently upgraded to Windows 7 and I wasn't having this problem before the upgrade.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Error message when you shadow a remote desktop service session in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in Windows 7: "Because of a protocol error, this session will be disconnected. Please try connecting to the remote computer again."

     

    Hope it helps.
