The newest Microsoft Remote Desktop app (v 8.0.24255) refuses to connect to a terminal server I use - username and password are accepted but then the server reports 'The requested session access is denied'.

Whereas the old Remote Desktop app I was using (v 2.1.1) still works just fine...

Any ideas on how to find the problem?

  • FYI, it seems the new client is buggy as hell. I routinely have to force quit the app to just get it to connect sometimes when I have previously connected to another server. Using the same version as you. – Mort Dec 9 '13 at 17:44

  • No real solution, except that logging in first with 2.1.1 , then resuming a logged session with 8.0.2 seems to work! Crazy. – snowcrash09 Dec 21 '13 at 10:46
