Due to upgrades in the network we need to somehow get RDP 5.2 running on our HP t5300 thin clients. The biggest issue is that by default they only run Windows CE.NET 4.2.

Any ideas?

Dont use CE... But you could try and replace these files from a machine using 5.2

C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstsc.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstscax.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\rdpdd.dll,
C:\WINDOWS\system32\rdpdr.sys

Then see what happens...This is really uncharted waters here....  Not designed to be downgraded....

Sort of stuck with using CE as that's the default image supplied by HP..
Will give is a shot.

No luck there as the app is quite different.
Can't even manually install RDP 5.2 as CE doesn't have a MSI installer.

Would using TS Web be any better?

Scratch that - TS Web won't work either.. The IE Browser is too old.

Alternatively with a later image (still no fix) but if we were to re-image all our T5300's with the latest HP supplied CE image, is there any way to copy the basic setup to all units? Such as: Timezone/region & NTP Server, startup mode & securities as well as the terminal server connection? I understand some of this can be done with Altiris but that's another expense we can't afford.

There seems to be HP info about FTP uploading images and having .ARP files for the settings present in the FTP dir but haven't found any extra info in regards to how to do it.
