Remote Desktop app - touch control does not work


  • I have a problem with the Remote Desktop Windows 8 UI app ( I use it on a Microsoft Surface running Windows 8 RT and connect to my laptop with Windows 8 Professional.

    I can connect without any problems and can control my laptop via my touch cover keyboard/touchpad or even via the Touchpointer feature of the Remote Desktop app (which allows to use the touchscreen of the surface as touchpad). However, the app is supposed to support direct touch input and all multi-touch gestures of Windows 8. And those does not work. If I touch on my surface just nothing happens on my remote laptop. It feels like the touchscreen is not working, but as mentioned the Touchpointer feature works.

    Is there a way to reinstall the remote desktop server on my Windows 8 laptop? Or how can I fix the problem?

    Thanks in advance!
