Windows 10 Pro can't RDP into 64bit Servers

Last Modified: 2015-11-01
I just upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and I am able to RDP into all of my server 2003 servers but I can't RDP into any server 2008 or server 2012. When i try it just freezes at the login screen. Things I have tried.
I have tried the Remote Desktop client that can be downloaded at the MS app store.
I have tried several setting in the actual client but to no avail.
I have tried changing the remote access settings on the server to allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop.
The Windows Firewall is disabled on the desktop and I tried it without any virus protection installed.
