    Hi guys, I cant seem to find my shortcut for Remote Desktop in WindowsXP, can someone post the actual file name so that I can search for it? Google turns up nothing!

    Thanks.

    Try here.

    Not sure if the file is standalone or the installer.

    It also says you can reinstall it from your Windows XP CDs and has directions.

    I'll make a quick check on an XP system in my office after I get off a conference call.

    No, I know where the downloaded client is. I simply need to know the .exe of the actual file that launches the application.

    Just did a quick search on my XP box and the Remote Desktop files are located in %SystemRoot%Webtsweb. It looks like CONNECT.ASP is the file that runs it. You can edit the file to suit your needs.

    Hope this helps...

    Also, you can create the shortcut by:

    Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Terminal Services Client (Right-click on the TSC listing and select Create Shortcut), which should prompt you that it'll create it on your desktop.

    Ah mstsc.exe, see, you would never guess that Remote Desktop Connection would translate to that! [​IMG]
