Windows 7 Professional RDP Issue

Help!!!

I have a windows 7 machine that is having trouble connecting to Server 2008/2012.

I get this error: "An authentication error has occurred. The requested security package does not exits"

I undid recent updates, but this did not fix the issue.

What error do you get?

I use Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit to RDP into Server 2008 with no difficulty.

Is your machine the Pro version (not Home)?

Did you do all the recommended updates?  Windows 7 sometimes left the .NET Framework in the Recommended category and you probably need the .NET updates installed.

Is your antivirus/firewall software conflicting?  Try disabling it temporarily.

I still don't understand why this seems to happen on Win7 machines, but double check your registry:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSAMake certain tspkg appears on the list of 'Security Packages' in \HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSA, and add it if it's missing...

It's windows 7 Pro x64 with RDP v 8.1.  All the RDP registry keys are there.  The PC is fully up to date, including .net.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Did you try disabling the antivirus?

Also, set up a new Windows User Profile. Log in under the new Profile and test. The User Profile could be corrupted.

You can try a Windows Repair Install.  See the Seven Forums Tutorial below for a guide on performing a repair install.

If that does not work, then you will need to back up the system and re-install Windows fresh. RDP works fine in Windows 7 so something has corrupted the system.

Just curious, can you go into the control panel on win7 and open credential manager, is there an entry for the 2008 and 2012 server? If so, remove it and then reboot and then try again.

None of it works.  I'll reload the machine.
