  • RDC6.1 is not supported on WS03:

    Platforms on which RDC6.1 is currently supported by Microsoft:

    XP SP3 x86

    XP SP2 x86

    Vista SP1

    Windows Server 2008

    Platforms on which RDC6.1 is NOT currently supported by Microsoft

    XP SP2 x64

    Windows Server 2003

    If you feel you have a valid business case that Microsoft needs to consider please share the following information with Microsoft:

    1) Whether you need the latest RDC client (RDC6.1) on Windows Server 2003 because you have end users using Windows Server 2003 as a client OS? Or whether you need RDC6.1 on Windows Server 2003 in order to perform you administrative tasks from Windows Server 2003?

    2) If you need RDC6.1 on Windows Server 2003 OR on XP SP2 x64 because you have end users using either as a client OS please let us know how many such terminals/computers you have in your environment and what features of RDC6.1 you need to use.

    3) If you believe you need RDC6.1 in order to administer machines please let us know why the RDC that is available on Windows Server 2003 is not sufficient for you to perform your administrative tasks.

  • Officially there are is no RDP 6.1 client for W2003.
    But you still can install it on W2003. Here is how:

    hope that helps.


    DISCLAIMER: The above solution is NOT a Microsoft supported workaround. It can affect the future servicing of the RDC binaries involved and therefore may result in exposing the server to security vulnerabilities. Use at your own risk.
