    Wizard cannot configure Remote Desktop Connection Settings. 6.0 higher


    Hi Everyone,

    I have noticed since upgrading to Windows 10 I am unable to Log into my work network which uses Server 2008. It keeps giving me the following error. I have added it to the compatibility mode settings but still get the same error. This is the following error I am getting " 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"
    I have attatched a screen shot also. Thank you very much

    Me Too


    I joined the Forum to find the answer to the same problem. I used Internet Explorer and added the site to compatibility setting as I had to do with 8.1. I checked with one of my 8.1 computers and there is no problem making a connection with that computer.

    I sure someone comes up with an answer.

    RWW wont connect SBS 2008


    I too have the same problem trying to connect to Remote Web Workplace on my server running Windows SBS 2008. I have tried all the permissions and fixes i.e. Active X Scripting etc. but no joy. Edge browser won't connect but there is an IE option that tries but there is some handshake that just doesn't happen.

    The brief time that I used my own PC to log in to my company's network, I used a VPN.

    I will check what we use at work but I don't have any issues. but I also don't use that goofy web login page thing you are, I connect direct to my pc on my desk.

    but never forget Win2008 Server is EOL outside of service pack and certain modules. and as such, Microsoft very well could be forcing companies to upgrade to 2012...
    Win10 RDP client may run at a higher encryption level than 2008 is set for.

    I would offer that they make sure their aren't any updates to terminal services on that server

    terminal services version 6 was in XP and windows server 2003.
    if you have a Win2008 server at work your IT people are fracking your company over big time by running a terminal server with massive security holes in it.
    please contact your IT people to verify the server version, make them show you, and tell them to get off their arse and upgrade terminal services.

    Windows Server 2008 is not EOL. Windows Server 2003 was *JUST* retired. 2008 just left *mainstream* support in January of this year. Extended support is still until 2020.

    See:
    Microsoft Support Lifecycle

    Mainstream support means that no new features will be developed for it. Extended support means that Security patches will still be produced until Extended Support ends (in this case, 2020).

    mainstream support means. for any company with half a brain, its time to upgrade, so for mainstream life, and companies, its end of lifed.
    mainstream support...
    service packs and extended support are all that are valid now. you cant call Microsoft and get help unless you paid big bucks for a long life support contract, which most companies running 2008 didn't do because of the kid that installed it just through it in there on a .local domain and said its a server.

    and frankly if you are still on server 2008... its time to upgrade.

    You really think that fortune 500 companies are hiring some kid who doesn't know what he's doing to run their IT departments? Extended support means that security patches are still being produced. So you don't have any security reason to throw away a perfectly good OS. You just don't get new features. You only need a service contract for hotfixes that are not security related.

    I had to change some code in a dll file and can log in using IE on Win 10. It was scary having to do but it is a patch fix. It sure beats having to set up a vpn and log in that way.
