  • Vista & Remote Desktop

    I have problem to connect with Windows Vista Remote desktop to Windows 2003 Server. I can work, but when I tried to work with the mouse it works very slowly.
    It took about 4 seconds to click on any icon on my desktop until it really moves.
    When I use the keyboard it works Ok.

    Anyone knows anything about it?
    Please help me.

    Strange. What resolution are you using? Are you using any encryption?

      Hi Daniel.

      How are you?

      Well, I tried to change the resolution, to 600X800, and so on, but it still works very bed. I am not using any encryption.
      I am just connecting to our 2003 server's thru terminal-server.
      I also try to change the colors to minimum, but still it does not work well.
      I am working with Windows Vista basic .


      Do you have any anther idea?

        what theme is the vista desktop using?

        try setting the vista box to classic theme and see if its still slow.

        try VNC. do you get the same thing with VNC?

          I would first try connecting via an XP box and see if you experience the same issues. If you do then it's likely to be something to do with the connectivity from your subnet / vlan to the subnet / vlan where the server exists.

          If the XP connection works fine then you know it's something to do with Vista and then as James suggested, try VNC

            HI group.

            I called Microsoft support, and I received an answer for my problem.
            They told me, that my Windows Vista is not supporting the remote desktop feature.

            I have Windows Vista Basic.

            They also told me that I can upgrade my license To Business Version or to Ultimate.
            They are the only versions that support remote desktop.


            Thank you.

            Moshe.

              Oh isn't that wonderful. Guess it might be worth looking at some 3rd party remote apps like VNC etc.

              Thanks for posting back and letting us know that Moshe, your Community Spirit is appreciated.

                Hold on Moshe! You say that MS told you that you CANNOT use the RDP client on Vista Basic? Meaning you can run it but you can't expect them to give you support for it?

                Interesting.
