Server 2008 32bit (not R2) TS(RDS) became RDP 5.1


  • Hi All

    I've one server 2008 32bit server with installed TS service. 

    First the RDP-TCP version was "Microsoft RDP 6.1". But one day I reboot this TS server then the RDP-TCP version became "Microsoft RDP 5.1"

    Then I've re-installed TS service but it still keep on 5.1. 

    Does anybody know why is that and how to upgrade to RDP 6.1 from TS configuration?

  • Hi,

    If all the new RDP features works well,I believe the issue is that the description of the RDP-Tcp listener was not updated.  You may manually edit it by modifying the following registry value:

    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp

    WdName     REG_SZ     Microsoft RDP 6.1

    This issue can be occurred when upgrading to a new OS version or patching some hotfix thru the registry inadvertently, I generally prefer to install from scratch instead of upgrading to help avoid strange issues.
