I purchased a standard wildcard SSL certificate from GoDaddy (*.mydomain.com). I have set it up on all my IIS servers throughout my network and wanted to use it for RDP as well. Even though I installed it to every servers personal stores I was only able to put it in on the RDP-TCP for the server that created the originally created the cert request. The rest don't have any options when I select edit.

How do I get this cert applied to the RDP-TCP?

Sounds like you need to export the certificate including private key from the original server.  The others just have the public key with the cert.  When you export it you will end up with a .pfx file that you can copy to the other servers to install.

Also note that many commercial CAs require extra licensing fees for each installation of a wildcard.  There are a number of different licensing schemes that they use, so I don't have a typical one to state.  Some give you x number of installs included, then require you to pay the same amount all over, some will charge a larger upfront fee and a few bucks per box, some go by physical boxes, some go by number of sites masked, etc.  If you don't already know, it is a good idea to contact the cert vendor to determine what their wildcard licensing terms are so you are in compliance.
