I went to the makeuseof.com article from the link of Klaus, which shows how to run Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Connection program as a portable application from a USB drive.
It inspires me to think about how it can be done in my environment. I hope to use Microsoft’s Terminal Services client, mstsc.exe, on a server from the server often, which is built in Windows XP, Windows 2003 and new operating system.
My Windows 2000 server can be accessed via RDP, but since they do not have an updated client, I was not able to run mstsc from Windows 2000 Server.
The Makeuseof.com article lists four files that require copying to run remote desktop from a USB desktop: mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll, plus mstsc.exe.mui and mstscax.dll.mui.
I copied the first two files from my Windows XP SP2 machine to my Windows 2000 server. The other two .mui files were not present on my Windows XP machine, maybe I’m running because of the OS version.
Once the files were copied to my server, I double click on mstsc.exe, and was able to use the Windows 2000 server as a terminal service client. This will allow me to break my dependence on VNC and terminals as remote desktop clients on the old operating system.
