Two issues with KB2984972 – this is a patch to update the RDP restricted admin mode

“Heads up, KB2984972 on Server 2008R2 RD server caused issues with our Wyse thinclients – it caused them all to span desktops across multiple monitors rather than presenting multiple monitors to the host OS. After uninstalling & rebooting clients are presented with multiple monitors again.”  <<<< will impact MultiPoint Server as well too <<<<<

    thanks for the heads-up. This helps as I was wondering what was wrong with a couple of the recent updates from Microsoft including the KB3000061… now I know this is a known issue so I can ignore this update now. Thanks again.
