We're using 3 monitor setups with both portrait and landscape monitors. I did initial testing of the new "true multi monitor" feature of RDP 7.
It worked great as long as I was connecting to either Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 Ultimate (both in trial versions). Based on additional research of microsoft websites that noted that true mutli monitor remote desktop connection is support by Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise, we have purchased 5 new computers with Win 7 Professional.
Now I'm trying to connect to Windows 7 Professional from Windows 7 Professional system and I can only get the RDC session on one monitor only. Quite frustrating.
I contacted both Dell and Microsoft but neither could tell me if Win 7 Professional can host true multi monitor session.
Did any of you try this? I'm trying to determine if it is Win 7 Pro limitation or some system setting that I'm missing?
It looks like MSFT changed the FAQ at some point...
