So like always used to, Microsoft has made available for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2, the RDP 8.0 update: http://support.micro....com/kb/2592687
. It adds *some* RDP 8.0 features. But there is also a catch. When using RDP 7 from Windows 7 Ultimate/Enterprise client to Windows 7 Ultimate/Enterprise host, there was a cool feature called Aero Glass Remoting means full Aero experience was enabled over RDP!! Now with KB2592687 installed, this feature is REMOVED from Windows 7 hosts when Windows 7 clients connect to it!! Aero features like Flip 3D, Peek, thumbnails stop working over RDP Windows 7 Ultimate to Ultimate when this is installed.
So again, KB2592687 is a case of something nice added, something broken/crippled/removed. It also removes the Shadow command used for used for monitoring an active remote session and has a number of other known issues. Just be careful of installing it, if you don't want to lose Aero Glass over RDP (it only works in Ultimate/Enterprise client to Ultimate/Enterprise hosts anyways). But I am confused. This is madness. Why is MS crippling Windows 7's RDP features? Why would anyone want to gain new features in exchange for old ones?
