Cannot enable RDP 8.0 through Group Policy on windows Server 2012 Standard

    Question

  • Hi,

    Windows Server 2012 Standard does not have an option in Group Policy to enable RDP 8.0.

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Remote Session Environment\Enable Remote Desktop Protocol 8.0” does not exist as shown by the screenshot below.

    How can one add this option to the Group Policy options on Windows Server 2012 Standard?

    Makes no sense why the group policy isn't there in the first place though.

    It doesn't exist in 2012R2, too. And according to
    gpsearch.azurewebsites.net it never existed.
