When you attempt to connect to a remote computer using Remote Desktop on a Windows XP Professional Edition, you receive:
The remote computer disconnected the session because of an error in licensing protocol.
To resolve this behavior, I have scripted FixRDMSL.bat, which contains:
@echo off setlocal call :Quiet>nul 2>&1 set key=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing for /f "Tokens=*" %%a in ('REG QUERY %key%^|find /i "%key%\"') do ( @echo REG DELETE "%%a" /F REG DELETE "%%a" /F ) endlocal goto :EOF :Quiet NET START TERMSERVICE
To fix this behavior:
1. Open a CMD.EXE window.
2. Type FixRDMSL.bat, or the fully qualified file name, and press Enter.
3. Shutdown and restart Windows XP.
