When you attempt to connect to a computer using Remote Desktop via SBS 2008 Remote Web Workplace you may receive an error like this: The wizard cannot configure Remote Desktop Connection settings. Make sure that the client version of Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 6.0 or later is installed on this computer.

To resolve this issue we need remove the RDP version check. On the Small Business Server browse to “C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\webapp\Remote”. There will be a file named tsweb.aspx. Edit the file and look through it for a section that looks this:

Sub window_onload()
Dim targetMachineName
Dim version
On Error Resume Next
version = MsRdpClient.Version
if Err then
msgbox ControlLoadFailed_ErrorMessage,0,RemoteDesktopCaption_ErrorMessage
exit sub
end if
On Error GoTo 0
if strcomp(version,”6.0.6000″) < 0 then
msgbox IncorrectClientVersion_ErrorMessage, 0, RemoteDesktopCaption_ErrorMessage
window.close
exit sub
end if

Comment out the second part of that statement. To do that just add single quotes at the start of each line like so:

‘if strcomp(version,”6.0.6000″) < 0 then
‘ msgbox IncorrectClientVersion_ErrorMessage, 0, RemoteDesktopCaption_ErrorMessage
‘ window.close
‘ exit sub
‘end if

Do not use the Edge browser and ensure that the RWW site is in compatibility mode.
