Hello all,
Would most appreciate any input.  

I have a windows 7 pro, sp1, x64 machine.  
Trying to connect to any system requiring NLA.
Cannot get this system to update rdp past 6.3.9600 which does not support NLA.  
Have done all windows updates.  
Have installed KB2574819-v2-x64 and KB2592687.  (RDP 8.0 updates)
Have edited local group policy in accordance with above articles.
Have verified that all windows updates were successful.  
Rebooted many times.  
System began with 6.1 so it has updated somewhat.  

ON a deadline... of course, aren't we always...
Thanks to all on this forum.  When I retire I am going to help out here, love this site.
JLG

Hi,

Did you installed KB2574819 Before you install the RDP 8.0 update, as a prerequisite.

if not then install 2574819 then 2592687 and reboot the machine.

Please be clear on NLA. All Windows 7 rdp clients support NLA. What errors do you get that make you think it doesn't?

What made me think it wasn't is that under help and about, it said NLA was not supported.
And the error message when I tried to use it.

I figured it out.  

I was missing credssp.dll entry in the following key.
once I added it to the list of dll's already there, everything worked.
I did not even have to restart the machine.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders

Happy computing to all

Good to hear you found a solution.
But I nevertheless wonder what you are talking about: where did it say "NL is not supported"? If I open the RDP client on win7 and go to about, of course it says NLA is supported, and I did not have to change anything.

Actually, where yours (and now mine) says NLA is supported, mine said NLA is not supported.  Really, try it... go remove the credssp.dll entry from the registry and it will change that line.  Then put it back and it comes back.

I now believe that this is related to a virus this system had back about a year ago.  One where it hid all the files from the desktop and start menu and chilled out all the .exe files.
You know the one?

I believe, that removing credssp will change it, yes. Ok, so it was a virus? Wonder why a virus should want to do this...
