Since upgrade to Windows 8, cannot save .rdp files under the Remote Desktop Connection application on the Desktop

Q: Since upgrade to Windows 8, cannot save .rdp files under the Remote Desktop Connection application on the Desktop

Since I upgraded to Windows 8, I am no longer able to save individual Remote Desktop Connection files as .rdp files. I am talking about the traditional Remote Desktop Connection application on the Desktop that was in previous Windows versions, not the
Remote Desktop App from the Windows 8 store.
When I try to click on the Save button I get "An error occurred while saving to file"
When I try to click on the Save As button I get "Unable to open connection file" with the file address being where I tried to save it with the file name at the end.
Also when I upgraded to Windows 8, my .rdp files disappeared from my Documents folder.
I need to create different .rdp files for different programs that my employees get into on my server. Now I have to hand type all the info each time into the Programs tap on the Remote Desktop Connection window, because I can't save to an
.rdp file.
I like the Remote Desktop App from the Windows store but it won't let me designate specific programs to use using standard dos notation (ie c:\program files\ etc..). It just goes to my server desktop.
I want to promote Windows 8 to my employees but I need either .rdp files for the traditional Remote Desktop Connection or the ability to open specific programs using dos notation in the Windows Store Remote Desktop App.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm using Windows XP Professional with SP3. I'm trying to configure Remote Desktop Connection so I can connect to a remote computer without entering my logon credentials every time. However, there is no option in Remote Desktop Connection which allows me to do that. There is a checkbox labeled "Always ask for credentials", but when that box is unchecked, the "User Name" box is disabled and I'm forced to log in with the same account I'm using on the client.

Searching the web (and this forum) I've found that many people have similar problems, but I haven't found the solution.

Note that I have another computer with Remote Desktop Connection 6.0. On that computer, everything works great; I can save my credentials and log in to the exact same remote computer easily.

I've gone through various articles, but the problem still occurs.
Steps Taken:
1. Enable Remote Desktop on my Microsoft Surface Pro
2. Went into Linksys EA6500 configuration and have tried the following configurations:
a. Single Port Forwarding external: 8888 internal: 3389 Dest IP: 192.168.1.100 (Surface Pro, which I've also setup as a static IP on the router)
b. Single Port Forwarding external: 3389 internal: 3389 Dest IP: 192.168.1.100
c. Multiple Port Range 3389 - 3389 Dest IP: 192.168.1.100

3. Made sure that Windows firewall was not blocking RDP, even tried turning it off.
4. Checked Whatismyip for external IP address
5. On the RDP Android app, I added a new RDP session with the following details:
a.Entered PC Name: External IP, Username
b. Gateway: 192.168.1.1:3389 also tried Gateway: 192.168.1.1:8888
It will keep erroring out saying: "We couldn't connect to the gateway because of an error. If this keeps happening, ask your admin or tech support for help.
Error code: 0x3000008

A:Problem establishing Remote Desktop connection from RDP Android application to Microsoft Surface Pro on Linksys EA6500 Router

2. b. should be correct, and 5. a. should be good as long as your surface's
local IP is 192.168.1.100
 
The only thing I don't see mentioned is if the EA6500 has a firewall turned
on and could it be blocking the connection?
 
If you have another PC on your local LAN, you can test the connection to
the surface locally, but then use the address 192.168.1.100 instead of the
external address, to see if the problem is your router, or the Surface.  If
it works and external doesn't, it's the router.

I'm running windows 7 home premium and on mobile, windows 8.1

I find that ultra vnc does a rather poor job for remote control of a win 8.1 pc.
and the other way round too: win 8.1 >>> win7 home premium.

Seems slow at best and nasty things happen to the background on the 8.1 pc. Seemingly disabled or something when connect win >>> win 8.1.

I do not remember all the particulars now, and don't really want to fiddle around with it.

I can say with certainty that connecting win 7 (home prem) >>> win 7 (starter) worked quite well in both directions... although there were problems with background being disabled or such then too.
But the connection was stable and fairly fast.

So, cutting to the chase. Is the "remote desktop" application available on higher versions than mine in
both cases.... worth upgrading for? Is the remote access really well done, and works really well?

Is there some other technique for remote access (gui) that is better, (read faster) than vnc or, as good or better than the windows "Remote desktop"?

A:Remote Desktop does not save window position for Windows 7 Ultimate

I think that's because when you connect to a remote machine, it doesn't provide you with both screens. RDP does not give you dual screen access.
So if the remote machine has 2 screens and your client machine has 2 screens, it will still only open up the remote session on the one monitor.
Hope this makes sense.

I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. First of all let me say I have searched the forums, searched google and still can't find the solution for getting remote desktop to work AGAIN.

My wife uses it to connect to her school server. The server is used by her ENTIRE district, it is always up and running, absolutely nothing wrong on there end.

We HAD been connected and it worked fine for almost 2 years, all of a sudden it just stopped working. It gives this error:

Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:

1)Remote access to the server is not enabled.
2)The remote computer is turned off
3)The remote computer is not available on the network

Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled.

I have also made sure everything is enabled and checked the settings, followed the guides to double check. I just don't understand why it suddenly doesn't work, Her coworkers it works fine. It is not an issue on the server she is connecting too.

I've disabled firewalls, uninstalled my Norton software... I've even reformatted my PC completely. It still wont connect when I enter her address. I've completely run out of ideas and my last option was calling Microsoft professional help but pay $200? Don't think so.. If anyone has any advice would be most appreciated!

You must have a password in order to connect via Remote Desktop, Your user name "should" be what your name is on the Start menu. Create a password in the User Account Control Panel, (Click on your display picture in the start menu for a shortcut) and then try connecting.

P.S. You might want to clear the domain field of whatever is listed if you are part of a workgroup.

Okay I have seen some machines where when you remote desktop into them from a single screen machine to a dual screen machine it will shuffle over all apps to the primary screen and you can keep working. I have seen others that will have dual screens and it will leave the app open on the toolbar but you can't get to it because it is on the 2nd screen and htings don't get shuffled over. Now I have a 3rd type of behavior and I need to figure out why PCs are not all behaving the same.

This new symptom is connecting into a Vista machine that has 2 screens. All the apps themseleves stay on the screen they were left on but the sidebar does squish to the First screen.

Some machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen both apps show on screen 1.

Other machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen show app on screen 1 and app 2 shows in toolbar but you have to close it and reopen it to get it on screen 1.

Hello everyone. I'm trying to connect my home PC to my work PC.

Home - Vista Home Premium
Work - Windows 7 Ultimate

Given the two Operating Systems (Ultimate is the one being connected to), this should be possible. I changed the remote settings on my work PC to allow remote connections. I'm now home and trying to connect. When I input my work IP address (which I found with http://whatismyipaddress.com/) and user name and hit Connect, it asks me to enter my credentials. On this credentials screen, it shows my user account for the work computer with the correct login picture, so I know I have a connection.

My user name is already entered, but it still asks me for a password. I don't use a password at work, so I leave it blank and hit OK. It then gives me this error:

"An authentication error has occurred (Code: 0x80090304)."

No idea what this means. Should I try making a login password at work, or should I change some settings around? It's my first post, so sorry if I'm asking about something that was already recently addressed. Thanks in advance!

I've just upgraded to Windows 8 from Windows 7. The main issue I have with Windows 8 is that the remote desktop client is somehow broken for me. Whenever I use it, it blocks (i.e. I cannot interact with the remote computer) and then I get the pseudo-dialog
box stating reconnecting and it will reconnect and I get back the remote access. It does this all the time (about every few minutes). It looks like the client is dropping the connection and automatically re-establishing it.
Note that when I cannot interact with the remote computer, I can still ping it just fine. So clearly it is not a connection problem. I even have on the same machine a virtual machine machine running Windows XP Pro and in there the remote desktop client from
XP never drops the connection, nor blocks.

I have an interesting challenge with Remote Desktop.

I am connecting via a VPN (using Shrewsoft) to a Windows XP SP3 computer in the UK. The tunnel is created successfully and when I connect using my own personal laptop (Lenovo) I am able to connect and login. My Lenovo is running Windows 7 Professional SP1.

The person I am configuring this connection for is using a Samsung RV511 running Windows 7 Home Basic. Once again the VPN connection is establsihed succesfully using Shrewsoft, however when connecting using Remote Desktop, the connection shows me the remote screen, with the ip address showing at the top, however the login dialogue box does not show. The background colour of the remote screen shows, just no login credentials box.

I have optimised the MTU settings on the computer involved, turned off bitmap caching on the Remote Desktop Connection settings, disabled all firewalls, all anti virus software, all to no avail. The computer is connecting to a DSL router via a wireless connection.

Any suggestions (aside from installing Team Viewer) would help. Thanks

I apply the new setting and also hit save.

After I connect.... it asks me to put the user name even though the credidentials were saved.

when I do this on a different workstation. It works fine and connects without asking me to enter username and password.

Following all these little upsets, deep scans were made using Kaspersky AV, Trend Micro (online), Symantec (online) and no virus found.

Hello all
I am having an issue with Remote Desktop Connection.
I can connect to my Laptop from my Desktop using Remote Desktop Connection but when I try to connect to my Desktop from my Laptop I get an error stating that Network Level Authentication is not supported on the machine I am connecting from, i.e. the Laptop.
Both the Laptop and the Desktop are running Windows 7 Ultimate.
This used to work fine and I am unable to find what has changed.
I have even tried doing a Repair Install of Windows 7 Ultimate on the Laptop but still have the same issue.
Does anyone have any ideas, short of reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate from scratch?
Thanks in advance
Kevin

I once seen a user that had RDP in his Start Menu and there was a flyout of several saved connections and below the saved connections was a list of the most recent connections. How do I setup saving a list of most frequently used RDP connections?

A:How to configure Remote Desktop to save frequent connections

Hello,

When you use remote desktop it autmatically saves the connections in the list. This list may disappear when you do a cleanup or run any cleanup software.

I use a program called VisionApp to manage my connections as I have a few.

I'm ashamed to admit, but family was complaining of the computer running slowwwwwwwww. So, I downloaded myfasterPC and you probably already know this story. It messed up the registry (I think). After it did what it was supposed to do whatever that was, I have been having problems logging into my computer at work from home. This is what happens: I go to the site to try and connect which uses Citrix - I'm able to put in my username/password, however, when I go to click on the V10 remote desktop icon, I just hear a clicking sound and nothing pops up. I checked event viewer and don't see anything unsual. So, I wanted to make sure that I really could log into this site as I usually do. I got out my wireless laptop and sure enough, I was able to get to the Citrix username/password and then I was able to click on the V10 remote desktop and then a window popped up that allowed me to connect to my computer at work. All was working well. I have since uninstalled myfasterpc. I have gone back to last known config and that did not fix anything so just undid that and things are partially working except my remote desktop. This is the error message I get when I try to log on to the V10 remote desktop. "Some of your resources cannot be reconnected even though they may be available for reconnection. If this message does not usually appear during your sessions, contact your system administrator."

I have looked through NUMEROUS sites and have googled some of the same is... Read more

Remote Desktop Connection wants the IP or name of the remote computer to connect to. But suppose the remote computer is behind a router. The router has one WAN IP, say 192.45.63.98, which will be the same for all the computers connected off of that router, (when you google "my ip" from any of them) and then each computer connected off of the router will have a LAN IP, something like 10.0.0.6. So if I want to help the person connected to the 10.0.0.6 computer (and not the person connected at 10.0.0.9) off of this router what do I tell Remote Desktop Connection at my computer to reach them?

Thanks.

My problem is this:

I can't run remote desktop connection in my current situation. I'm at home and I'd like to be able to do this.

I have a laptop that's fairly new. It's an HP Pavilion dv6 with an AMD Turioin II P520 dual-core processor that's 2.30 Ghz and it's running Windows 7 Home Premium, the 64-bit version.

I have two computers I'd like to control using my laptop: A Gateway GT5692 running an AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-Core Processor 2.10 GHz that's got the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium and a HP SR501P with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 4200+ 2.20 GHz running the 32-bit version of Windows Vista Home Basic.

All are tied to a router. The laptop runs wireless and the two desktops have a wired lan. All connect to the internet through the router tied to a DSL modem.

I can control the computers using Windows Remote Assistance but not with Windows Remote Desktop connection. What's up with that? http://b.tsgstatic.com/smilies/frown.gif

And when I bring up system properties on my laptop, it has the “Remote Assistance” dialog but not the dialog for “Remote Desktop”. I viewed this on another computer with a video titled “Accessing another computer with Remote Desktop Connection”. On that video, it has the dialog for “Remote Desktop” viewable 50 seconds from the front of the video. I've noticed that this computer's system is “Windows 7 Ultimate” while I'm stuck ... Read more

Hi. I just viewed Kari Finn's clearly explained Remote Desktop Connection on Win10 and how to connect to remote computer, thank you for that. Good job! In my case though, I use Win XP Home edition. Do I have to have Win XP Pro edition to connect on RDC to Win 10 host using Hyper-V virtual creation?
Also, if that is the case, how can I reboot my remote computer XP OS and get onto the Start Up Menu page? The keyboard command is released to my Win 10 host computer on start up and I don't have access to keyboard commands (such as F8) until Win XP has been fully booted up. How do I access that Start Up menu page otherwise?
This would be helpful for me to know. Thanks.

A:Remote Desktop Connection Explained - Question remote XP?

Hi Hibs, welcome to the Ten Forums.

You simply cannot use Windows XP Home as remote host, meaning you cannot connect to it using the Remote Desktop Connection. There are some hacks around the Internet but I very strongly advice against them.

(From Remote Desktop: frequently asked questions)
A workaround, in case you have or can find a valid Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate license is to install Windows 7 on a Hyper-V virtual machine, then install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode on that virtual machine. Works perfectly giving you Windows XP Pro SP3.

If the mouse and keyboard are released by the Windows XP vm back to host, you simply need to bring the pointer on the vm and click to get them back to vm. The F8 keyboard shortcut when booting XP up works then totally normally bringing up the advanced options boot menu:


To release the mouse and keyboard back to host, press CTRL + ALT + LEFT ARROW.

Kari
