mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll for xp sp2

Does anyone know where I can get copies of mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll files from a winxp pro sp2 installation? My machines are all sp1 and I'm not overly anxious to install sp2 because of all of the problems that it can cause. I have a need to get rdp working in ssl explorer and sp2 versions of these files are what is required as the work around.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the info. Because the download from Msft is msrdpcli.exe it checks for previous versions of rdp which of course my machines have. The install process ends with the following error:

"Remote Desktop Connection cannot be installed because your operating system has a built-in version. See All Programs\Accessories\Communications\Remote Desktop Connections on your start menu"

to note: uninstalling the rdp using the add/remove windows components applet in the add/remove programs applet of the control panel and then restarting the install does not allow it to complete without the error.

Do you have further suggestions for:
1. obtaining just the xpsp2 versions of these files or:
2. a workaround so that the download that you provided earlier can complete successfully.

Thanks for the help.

Do you know you gave the points to Squang?  The MSRDP doesn't work on Windows XP machines as you said...

do a search for "points for DeadNight" without the quotes. This will pull up the open question. Add your own text into the question and I will accept so that you can get points.
