Windows Server 2016 Terminal Server - can't change DPI

Heey guys

In Windows Server 2016 Terminal session you can't change the DPI for the displays. As I know this configuration will be redirected from the local maschine but only when you are using RDP 10 (Windows 8 and higher). In Windows Server 2012 R2 it was also greyed out but you had the option to activate it over a checkbox below the options.
In my case users are using windows 7 embedded. I configured the DPI in the local control panel but no effect when I am connected to the RDS Server.

I also tried some registry keys:
https://www.serverknowledge.net/remote-desktop-services/change-dpi-settings-remote-session/    --> No effect
https://blog.brankovucinec.com/2016/03/19/fix-remote-desktop-dpi-scaling-issues/ --> not compatible

Same problem in 2008

This tool does not excatly change the DPI. It will change the font size of windows but it is a good workaround. hopefully microsoft will fix this.

thanks
