I am trying to remote into a win server 2008 that I have on my business network. We don't run a terminal services license server, as I only need to connect once in a while as admin to fix a problem.

I can connect without any problems with RD client on my ipad, but I cannot connect from my win7 machine.

I have tried running remote desktop as admin, I've taken the advice of another post here and deleted the MSlicensing key. I've tried putting in the /admin and /console switch in the shortcut. Nothing so far has worked. I still get the error he remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server license servers available to provide a license.

I don't know why iOS RD client works and not win7 RD.
