Remote Desktop 8.1.0 for iOS - Can't Connect - Error 0x00000507


  • Version 8.0.8 worked fine.  I upgraded to 8.1.0 today, and I can no longer access my computer on either my iPad or iPhone.  It shows error 0x00000507.  I get the following messege...

    "Disconnected from server <server name> with error code 0x00000507"

  • I didn't even have to reinstall. In previous versions, my User Name had to be entered as MICROSOFTACCOUNT\<username or email>. 8.1.0 needs just the username or email... MICROSOFTACCOUNT is no longer needed, and including it causes the error! Hope this helps everyone else!
