A: The Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 8.0 update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 can be downloaded and installed from the Microsoft download site. Before installing the RDP 8.0 update, install the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) support update.

After both updates are installed, Windows 7 SP1 will have the new RDP 8.0 and RemoteFX capabilities, both as an RDP client and as an OS connected to via RDP.
