"Your password has expired" on Windows 2008 RDS

We have a Windows 2008 R2 RDS farm.

I have create a GPO - 14 days before the password expires - the user is promted by a "ballon-tip"...

This message is only shown for a couple of sec.

Is it possible to have the "old-way" password expire as in Windows 2003? - or in another user-friendly way?

    Unfortunately, there is no solution for that to bring the old information way :(
    As workaround you may wish to use this script at

    RDS Unfortunately does not support Baloon Tipping or prompting that your password will expire.  Not out of the box anyway, but you can edit the RDWeb Pages and add the functionality by making it call another .ASPX file which looks up the user in active directory and then advises the user that he has X days left to change his password.

    You could also program it yourself by modifying the Default.aspx file in C:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages\en-US
