Enable Remote Desktop Connection on Vista Home Premium


August 30th, 2007 | DIY, technology

Edit: I have now made a patch zip file for Vista SP1 available here: http://www.unet.fi/ fransblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/termsrv_sp1.zip (hope it works for you, it did ok for my Home Premium SP1.) There are many nice, but also quite many really irritating aspects to Windows Vista.

Some are due to Microsoft intentionally crippling their own products. One of the most tiresome has been the disabling of Remote Desktop Connection. If you have to run down the stairs every time to check whether a particular process has ended or not, it gets old really quick, and double so when you realise that Vista Home Premium actually includes fully-featured Remote Desktop service, it is just broken by design. Here are the instructions to turn it back on thanks a lot, guys! Steps to Add Remote Desktop to Vista Home Premium: 1. Download termsrv.zip here 2. Extract Termsrv.zip to a temp directory 3. Start Command Prompt in Administrator mode (Run As Administrator) 4. Run the corresponding batch file for your Vista edition 5. Allow TCP Port 3389 on Windows Firewall or any other firewall product.

Thats great, Frans. I have to admit I didnt even know there was a Windows solution like that to begin with. Ive been using RealVNC to connect to my media PC. A Google search shows that a MS client could be installed on my desktop, but no sofware for my server as they both run on the ancient W2k Pro. Now let me count how many OS generations Im already behind ;)

Well, VNC connections run nicely as well, to my experience. I use it to access my server too, as it runs on Linux. Some say that in a Windows

machine VNC takes up more resources than RDC though, but I have not compared them side-by-side. It was just easier to get this Vista workstation to enable its broken RDC service than get it to allow incoming VNC connections, or that was how it was for me.

I just tried this on the version of vista home premium on my new toshiba a210. When I ran the install for the toshiba it created a user with administrator rights. However when I tried the above, I get permission denied on every step. Seeing this, Im guessing vista has another user level or the administrator rights are not full for everything?

Actually, the block you are seeing is the User Account Control. Microsoft put this on the system to stop users from running commands they might want to make without first accepting every step. Gotta love the intricacies. Frans, you made a great breakthrough here and I cannot wait

I was so happy to see this posting since my new computer came with Vista Home Premium and the only service it didnt have that I really wanted was Remote Desktop sharing. Ive downloaded the zip and followed the instructions and it does appear that the service is running on port 3389 but no computer on my network can connect to it. There is no error, the client just seems to give up after a few seconds of trying to connect. I disabled my firewall and AV to make sure they werent interfering but it made no difference. Are there further steps to follow

Unfortunately SP1 (rc1) current disables this RDP hack, mainly cause they say they have upgraded the algorithm of RDP. Any ideas anyone?

on 25.12.07 at 21:18

Hmm. Thanks Ed for the information. It looks like we have basically two options: to postpone upgrading to SP1 (if you want to have RDC available), or upgrade, and just hope and wait that an updated hack comes available soon..?

independent. On the other hand, many of us still prefer to use RDC in Windows-to-Windows situations, since it is a faster solution. And that is where SP1 upgrade seems to create problems in Vista. I established today a Mac-to-Vista connection from my livingroom Mac Mini, and rather than using the native Mac VNC implementation, or the open source version (Chicken of the VNC), I ended up using RealVNC for this (launch it in server, rather than service form in Vista, then install and use the Mac version of RealVNC viewer, available from: http://www. realvnc.com/cgi-bin/download.cgi?product=enterprise4/vncviewer/ macosx ).

I have found that you cannot use it on Vista Basic. Will give the permission errors that Trinh received. Apart from that it works fine, there is one for XP as well, you can get it from antiwpa.org.

What is a command prompt?

#18

frans

on 06.01.08 at 22:11

Wizard: ok, I didnt realise anyone would try to apply these Home Premium specific instructions on a Vista Basic, though. Ruth: command prompt is the text-only mode of using a computer operating system. In Windows versions you usually launch cmd.exe to get to it, in other systems you might need an access to terminal, console or something like that.

Currently it looks like you can acquire Vista SP1 only in March, or April, if you are using non-English versions. I wouldnt hurry. But no: I do not know of any hacks yet that would work with the (soon-to-be-released) SP1 upgraded versions of Vista. Lets see and wait.

thx for the termsrv.zip file tipfixed me up. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE THIS PAGE TO YOUR FAVORITES .. THIS WILL REQUIRE A RESTART AND YOU WILL NEED TO FIND THIS PAGE AGAIN EASY. SO YOU CAN COMPLETE THE PROCESS. step 1. First disable uac, click the start button, then click your picture in the top right of the menu (whatever picture you chose, flower, chess, fireworks..etc) this is a shortcut for going to user accounts in the control panel. Once you have clicked start, your login icon, then the last sentence on the right you will see (Turn User Account Control on or off) choose this option. Then take the check out of (Use User Account Control UAC to help protect your computer) click ok. Note that if you dont have a check in the UAC then continue to Step 2 without restarting. You will have to restart if you removed the check from UAC. After restart continue to step 2. Step 2. Click on start (round little windows icon in bottom left of your screen), Click on text (control panel),Top left click on text (Control Home).Then

The way we will do that is copying the address once we have unziped the file.

Or you can open Windows Explorer (start, computer) click. Once you are in the folder with the unzipped term files click in the address bar (just like in internet explorer and copy the directory link .. example (C:\Users\perry\Downloads\termsrv) this may or may not be different with youit depends on where you choose to save your download. after you copy this link go back to the black screen program (command prompt) and paste it by (right click black screen, left click paste) once pasted, type the version of vista you have.

C:\Users\perry\Desktop\termsrv\premium EXAMPLE C:\Users\perry\Desktop\business Remeber the last word in the address is the version of vista you have. Press enter on the keyboard. If you follow these directions exactly and get no errors and still cannot use Remote desktop, you may one of the following issues. Your router is blocking RDC and you need to allow it Your software firewall is blocking it like Zonealarm Or you have corrupted files All of which are out of the scope of this article of which i have no more time for sorry.

Instead of disabling UAC, just *run* the command prompt as Administrator. Its much easier, and in some peoples option, a better option to disabling UAC. Open the Start menu and look for the Command Prompt icon. If you dont see it, open and close a command prompt window first (type cmd in the start search field, then type exit once the command window is open). Right click on the Command Prompt Icon and select Run as administrator in the context menu. The batch file should run fine. This was tested on Vista Premium Home. Jimbo

Larry, you do need to rename it and replace the existing one from System32\drivers but you wont be able to as its locked by default as the service is running. so you could stop the terminal services services (I think) then replace it, etc, however it would be much simpler to just use the batch file that frans is mentinonig as it will do it for you (take ownership, stop the service, etc, and replace the file). good luck!

Ive got RD to connect just fine but RD does not seem to see up to date user names. I does find the admin name correctly but does not accept the correct password. Ive checked SHantanus fix for this- the username is right- but I cant get RD to take the right Admin password. Could I have some password I dont know about. Should i rerun the batch with UAC turned ON?? I turned it off for the initial install of termsrv.dll thansk edo

I downloaded the patched .dll, downloaded your original files, renamed the old & patched DLLs and ran it - works perfectly.

You dont need to disable UAC if you run from an elevated command prompt. (Start>All Programs>Accessories the right-click command prompt and choose Run as Administrator) Disabling UAC is a bad idea, and if you plan to stick with Windows you need to learn how to work with it and around it.

Right- UAC does not need to be disabled to do any of this.

But still having a similar problem with the RD log on password prompt. Very similar to post #43 but the password is the issue. THe username matches. I do not have a password assigned to the administrator user yet it wants a password i dont knoe. I changed user passwords back and fourth on the remote machine to no avail. Does anybody know how to determine or reset this unknown password on the remote computer. I have spent some time reinstalling with sp1 and non sp1 batch file so I have determined that that this is not the issue. forever thankfull

edo san: I have an interesting problem where I can log into RD successfully when Im on my LAN, but when I try to connect remotely, it rejects my password. My hunch at this point is that there is some setting in Windows that is blocking remote access from outside the network, but I have no idea where to start looking.

edo san: That didnt take me nearly as long as I thought it would. Open up regedit on the machine running terminal server and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Terminal Server. Look for the AllowRemoteRPC key and set it to a value of 1 (instead of 0). This fixed my problem.

Anyone else have a problem with the terminal services service not starting? Is this supposed to work on Home Premium x64?

TravisP: Thank you for that tip, I have not tried to log on RD from an outside IP but plan to tommorrow to test the registry change you describe above. Regarding my original problem: Turns out that I had a mistake in my username afterall, it had been renamed (just like the problem and solution articulated in post #40). There was a blank password assigned (not allowed by RD) preventing RD log on.

I managed to get this to work a few weeks back but have noticed some odd behaviour. User account specific functions and features are often mishandled by the OS. For example, when I use my PDA to activesync if the other user account is logged in concurrently it will try to sync with that users information and not the other user account. Also, I find the HP services for my printer/scanner all in one device crashes all the time and I need to stop and restart all the relevant services. This all started after SP1 ):

Click>Run As Administrator If still it says service not listening, goto Start>Run and type services. msc and press enter. Check if the Terminal Services is set to Automatic and is Running.

I did the Run as Administrator before. I went into services.msc and Terminal Services was and is set to automatic and is started. Also, I just re-ran the premium.bat and noticed a new line that says The Terminal Services service is stopping The Terminal Services service could not be stopped. (5 minutes later:) Ok, I now see what the problem is but have absolutely no idea what to do. I went into Services and clicked on Terminal Services and then clicked Stop the Service. It took at least two minutes for the bar to go all of the way across and then it brought up an error saying: Windows could not stop the terminal Services service on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. WHAT DO I DO? Also, should Terminal Services be running and set to automatic as well? Because it wasnt before this ordeal, but I recently set it too to automatic. Good idea?

At the end of my previous post, I meant to say Terminal Services CONFIGURATION at the end. Not Terminal Services. That was already started and on automatic. But the Terminal Services Configuration was stopped, so I recently started it and made it also be automatic. What does it do? Do I need it? Should I stop it?

so, replace the cracked version of termsrv.dll with ur original SP1 termsrv.dll (which is termsrv.dll.bak renamed to termsrv.dll).You might need to use safe mode for this operation. Now, in normal windows mode, check services.msc to see if u can start and then stop Terminal Services.If you succeed, try running premium.bat again.And report back if it works. Regarding the TRMSRV CONFIGURATION Service, windows shows that RDC doesnt depend on it, but still im seeing it Enabled, Manual so, change it to manual and start it. Good luck

SUCCESS! Thanks to everyone here! Heres what I did: I tried deleting the termsrv.dll file from the system folder but I got an error. So I then typed in command prompt and ran these commands: cd C:\Windows\System32 ren termsrv.dll termsrvBAD.dll ren termsrvbackup.dll termsrv.dll I then went into services.msc and tried restarting the service (I never restarted computer), and I got the error..I dont remember it but I got an error. After that, I saw that the Terminal Services was now STOPPED, so I simply ran the premium.bat as Administrator, and SUCCESS! I havent tested it yet, but according to the messages in the .bat, everything should work fine - it says its listening. Also, I followed Shantanu Tushars advice and turned Terminal Service Configuration to Started and I set it on Manual. Thanks again to everyone here! I hope this helps other people that have this problem!

Hi Shantanu, I found out that the problem was caused by the fact that my main account did not have a password on it. Vista refuses to allow a connection if an account is passworded. So i put a password on my main account, then tweaked Windows to allow auto-login (so i dont have to log in when my computer turns on). Now remote desktop works fine Thanks :)

I just discovered yesterday that it was an issue with port 3389, I had to change it. Maybe my ISP is blocking it, cause a couldnt open it, but it works with another one. I just have one question, does this hack allow multiple concurrent connections? I need to access my home pc while im at work, but without disconnecting other users logged locally. I havent tried it yet, because there is nobody at home right now, but what I have discovered is that I cannot change to another user (at the remote pc) while using remote desktop. Thanks frans!

I experienced the same things that most have indicated in this blog. RDT worked before, then it didnt after SP1 install. The patch (termsrv_SP1. zip) that frons offers seems to work well if done properly, though. The one thing that I notice most people are missing is: 1. You need to copy the new termsrv.dll file to the c:\Windows\System32 directory. In most cases you can not do this because the service is already running or you need to take ownership of the termsrv.dll file in order to have permission to rename it. In short, follow the directions below and type the commands in SAFE MODE. Good luck and I it works for you. I found this originally at - http://www.missingremote.com/index. php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1220&Itemid=232 - But dont use the files on this page because they are the Pre-SP1 tweak. 1. Now, Vistas security needs a little massaging to allow you to modify the original termsrv.dll file, found in C:\Windows\System32, so. 2. Click Start, then type cmd in the search box & hit enter. This will

launch the Command prompt Type the following & hit enter: takeown /f C:\Windows\System32\termsrv.dll 3. Then type this & hit enter (NOTE: Replace USERNAME with YOUR USERNAME!!

Then go to your Windows Explorer, and go to C:\Windows\System32 Rename the original termsrv.dll to something else, like termsrv.dll.

Here are two more little issues that I have with my RDC: 1 - Although I set color depth to 24 bit, I only get 16 bit when connected. 2 - Although I set up username and password, I always end up starting at the login screen of Vista, and so the information is not actually used. I dont know if these issues are really issues or if they are supposed to happen when RDCing from a Windows XP to a Windows Vista. Also, I believe that issue 1 may be due to lack of support of my notebooks video card for this specific situation (the video card is pretty capable of 32 bit color when in regular use though). Again, these two issues dont bother me, considering that the other options would be not to have RDC to the notebook at all or pay $160 to upgrade to the Ultimate version.

Also I had to open manually the port3389 in the windows firewall. Probably because of translations the patch did not open automaticaly. Thanks!!!!!

Marcelo, could you send me your modified premium.bat? I want to install it in a PT-BR Vista Premium also. Obrigado! email = av at ig dot com dot br And I found another little issue that may be related to this. Whenever I connect TO the notebook, after, when I log to the notebook without being in a remote session, USB mouse is not working. I need to disconnect and reconnect the mouse.

Just to note to others that may be having troubles with this, ensure you have downloaded Service Pack 1. I tried without service pack 1 and this didnt work for me. Terminal Services never respond during the check when running the batch file.
