  1. After installing SP3, the remote desktop connection does not work, from shortcut or program.

    I get the following response:

    The system could not find the specified file:
    c:\Windows\System32\<LANG_NAME>\mstsc.exe.MUI

    Can someone please help. Thanks in advance.

    As far as I can tell, mstsc.exe.MUI goes on a Vista machine. This make use of the Windows XP TermService. The Service in tern depends on the RPC Service running, which should already be on Automatic. The TermService is used by the Fast User Switching Service.

    You will need to check the state of these Services and determine if the mstsc.exe.MUI should be on the Windows XP machine.
