Windows 2012 Terminal Server not accepting keyboard input

We have recently installed a Windows 2012 server with RDS (remote desktop services). All works fine using "Remote Desktop" from Win7. No problems.

Our thin-clients however, which work fine in Windows 2008R2, do not accept any keyboard and mouse input when logged into Windows 2012 RDS.
So, I can not login in the login screen, neither can they when I configure the thinclient to auto login (so when user is logged in, it also does not work).

Anything I need to do in Win2012 to allow extra keyboard permissions?

Thanks
Leslie

Thank you for your input.
This file is for Win7 and/or Win2008R2, while my RDS is Windows 2012 (it WORKS on Win2008R2!) and the thin-client is not Win7 but a thinclient with some linux bootloader.
This one is on us!

This turned out to be it. Thinclient needs updated software.
