RDP connection error

Windows 10 64bit pc.
I was testing a RDP connection for connectivity through a VPN tunnel. All was good until I wanted to check a new user account I had just put in AD controller. When I tried to log in with their crendentials I got the following error message.
RDP Error
I Googled this error and found that if I go in the registry to \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\MSLICENSE\Store and delete the License00 folder then I can again login into the RDP. However the next time I attempt to go into the RDP I get the error again and have to go back into the registry and delete the offending key. I don't have this issue with my Windows 7 laptop, just Windows 10 desktop.

Most VPN clients had to be upgraded to run on Windows 10. Did you upgrade the client.

Also try deleting the VPN Profile and remaking it.  That may be the issue.

Have you tried to delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing key with all subkeys?
