Remember that blog post about Windows 8?


You’ll see this again after you apply IE10 to your Windows 7 machines.



VBScript:  Remote Desktop Connection


The wizard cannot configure Remote Desktop Connection settings.  Make sure that the client version of Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 6.0 or later is installed on this computer.


1.  Ensure you have the latest SBS 2008 update rollup. http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2012/09/25/update-rollup-3-for-windows-small-business-server-2011-standard-and-update-rollup-6-for-windows-small-business-server-2008-available-now.aspx


2.  Put the url of the web site in the trusted site zone


3.  Click on “compatibility” settings and place the site in compat mode.   <<<< this one is key


Jump through all those hoops and you’ll get in just fine.

    Or use Google Chrome. Hoops avoided alltogether. If you must use IE, get the IE tab plugin for chrome.
