Is the new version of Remote desktop for mac compatible with SBS 2003?

The version I have used before is from Microsoft:
Remote desktop 2.1.1
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=18140

There is a later version available through the app store:
8.0.3
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/microsoft-remote-desktop/id715768417?mt=12

The user would be connecting OSX 10.9.1 to a Windows7 workstation on the SBS 2003 domain, via a VPN connection.  The VPN to the SBS server is PPTP.

Will there be any compatibility issues?

You can connect via RDP through the VPN, yes. You *cannot* use the RWW functionality of SBS though, with or without a VPN.
