Manually install Remote Desktop ActiveX Client

I have several machines that are trying to connect to Remote Web Workspace (RWW) on a SBS 2008 server. Windows XP & Vista machines can connect without any issues. I have certain Windows 7 machines that will connect if I downgrade the browser to IE 8 from 11. I have one machine that I have downgraded to IE8 however, it does not have the Remote Desktop Services ActiveX Client installed under Tools>Manage Add-ins. Prior to downgrading to IE8 the machine was used to try connecting to the site and therefore had gone through the "first connection process"
No matter what I have tried I cannot get the Add-in to install when trying to connect to the site after the first time the machine has connected. I have deleted history, etc.
How can I manually install this add-in? Where can I download this ActiveX and get it installed?
Has anyone else had any issues with Remote Web Workspace & IE 11 on Windows 7? I have searched Google and the items point to adding site to trusted site, compatibility view, etc.
Nothing has worked. Any help or pointers is appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

Download the latest RDP (8.0) from here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2592687

There is a known issue with IE11 and RWW not displaying the computer/rdp icon. If this is the problem you're having then add your RWW URL to Compatibility View.

Hi David-I followed the link and all of the instructions posted in the KB 2592687 and when I tried to apply the two patches KB 2592687 & KB254819 they both said the patches were already installed. I followed the rest of the instructions and that also didn't make a difference. Thinking it through, I then uninstalled both of the KB's above and WALLA!! IT WORKS!!! thanks for the lead!!!
