On my computer that is running Windows XP SP3 and IE8 I an unable to log in to the remote desktop services https://myterminalserver/rdweb.  (The RDP server is WIndows 2008 R2 Enterprise)

It says that Activex control not installed, it works okay on the actual rdp server but not from any other machine that I have tried.  I've added it in to trusted sites but still no luck.  It look to me as if there is an issue with the Activex.

Both these apply to XP - Does anyone know if there is an equivalent for Win7 ? (refer Q_27964979)
