Some time ago remote desktop connection stopped working for me.
It is enabled on the machine to where I want to connect.
I double checked the port (I changed it from the default one).
It was working just fine and then at some point it stopped. I do not know/remember about any changes I made what perhaps could impact it.
The only thing I suspect is related to this message in the event viewer:
Application popup:  : \SystemRoot\System32\TSDDD.dll failed to load
I looked up what this dll does and it seems to be directly related to the problem.
Literaly the folowing is happening.
I try to connect, the pasword is asked. The window of th remote desktop appears (empty, just blue background) and then it closes with no messages or any other indication of what happened.
Ther is nothing suspecious in the event viewer of the computer from which I am trying to connect.

Please help. Thank you.
