Problem - RDP to PCs and Server via SBS2003 RWW from a new Windows 8 PC not working

I am trying to RDP to a SBS2003 device  (or desktop PC) via the link in RWW. When I click the link I just get an empty white screen where normally the RDP connection starts up.

It works fine from Windows 7 PCs.

Within the "manage add-ons" section of IE10 I see that MS RDP Client Control version 4a is enabled - not sure if this matters.

Does anyone know how I get this working?

Perfect. It mentioned at the bottom of the linked page about adding the URL of the site to the compatibility view.

That fixed it for me. Simple when you know how :)

Thanks again.
