Does MSRDP 7 support bidirectional audio when connecting Win7 to Win7?

Does MSRDP 7 support bidirectional audio when connecting Win7 to Win7?
It works when I connect to W2K8 R2 Terminal Server but not when I connect to Win7.
I am using Sound Recorder and analog headset/mic to test with.

hi,
this problem is already known... You have just to download this upgrade:
http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B969084&x=18&y=5.
this will improve all the functions that Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 has.

Hope it helps!
Best regards

I tried this, installing Update for Windows XP (KB969084), which upgrades my RDP from 6.1 to 7.0.  But still not sound recording device.  Works when connecting to W2K8 R2.
Any other suggestions?  Have you recorded sound with analog mic in Win7 RDP 7 session?

Yes it does but ONLY if the remote host (the one you are connecting to) runs Windows 7 ENTERPRISE or ULTIMATE.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

I am using Win7 enterprise on the back end and front end.
Also tried it from my XPe based thin client with RDP 7 installed.
See attached jpeg.

I am seeing the same thing.

My remote host is Windows 7 Enterprise and no remote client running RDC 7 is able to access the client recording device.  Audio output redirection from the remote host to the client works fine.

If I open recording devices on the remote host I see "No audio devices are installed" with everything in the recording tab grayed out.

Any other ideas?

I will email Microsoft today and should have an answer by tomorrow. I know for multimon they at the beginning mentioned several Windows 7 editions to support it (as an RDP host) but it was not the case and they changed their F.A.Q. for that. It may be the case for two way audio.
Let me confirm and I will post here.

I hear that it works when connecting to Windows 7 Ultimate.  I am testing Enterprise and does not work.  I do not have Ultimate to try yet.  Can anyone try Windows 7 Ultimate as the backend?

Anyone hear anything?  I need to get Win7 Ultimate...just do not have it around.

Any word back from Microsoft?   Bi-directional audio is an important feature.  I would like to know if they don't support this in host configurations that the Microsoft RDC 7 web page says they do.

Sounds like no one has a response about Win7 Ultimate.  I have not had time to test it myself.  I can close this thread soon I guess.

So we can conclude that the bi-directional audio feature in RDC 7 as documented by Microsoft does not actually work on the systems indicated.
