Can someone please help me, as this is driving me crazy! I need to connect to my desktop back in the office, and this has been working great using the https://remote.domainname.co.uk
facility of Windows SBS2008.
The workstation I am on today is a Microsoft XP Pro SP2. (but I have this problem in a number of locations).
Now for some reason on many different workstations I can no longer connect. I type the URL for the network in a browser, and it presents the logon screen as usual. I then enter the username and password, and we get the small box appearing that has to remain active for the duration of the connection.
We then get the following error message :-
The Microsoft Terminal Services Client ActiveX control (also known as RDP client control) is either not available, or is not enabled. For mor information about installing and enabling this ActiveX control, see the Microsoft Technet Website (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=103719
Now when I look at this it just mentions that when SP3 had been installed there could be a problem and offers a fix it for me option or details for manually enabling ActiveX.
I have tried the fix it for me, but it just says that it is not appropriate for my OS, and does nothing. The workstation I am working at today is only SP2.!! So why should this problem keep cropping up?
I have tried to manage my add ons, but it is not shown, and resetting everything does not achieve anything. Does anyone have any suggestions as how to resolve this, and why is this happening more and more when using various workstations.
