Hi all,

Computer and Domain Info: XP sp3 machine on a SBS2003 domain that remote desktops to a 2008r2 server for Terminal Session.

On the local computer duel screen is acknowledged and works fine, go info terminal session and this is not the case, under display settings only 1 monitor is shown.

I have tried editing the RD txt file to run mstsc /mulitmon this does not make a difference
I have ran in mstsc /span and this spans the image over both screens but it stretched (does not show in Display settings tho.
Detect tab is greyed out under display settings.

Remote Desktop Version: V6.0.6001
Windows updates have been ran on both server and workstation

Any help is appreciated,

John Jennings
