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:
On Error Resume Next
version = MsRdpClient.Version
if Err then
On Error GoTo 0
if strcomp(version,”6.0.6000″) < 0 then
msgbox IncorrectClientVersion_ErrorMessage, 0, RemoteDesktopCaption_ErrorMessage
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
‘ exit sub
Do not use the Edge browser and ensure that the RWW site is in compatibility mode.
