When i click on "RDP\Local Resources\Disk Drives & Plug and Play Devices", nothing happens.

Also, Desktop Share doesn't seem to work.  I don't recall having these problems with Vista x32.

Terminals v1.9a

Windows 7 64-bit

Thanks, Jake

I have the same problem.

Running Terminal with administrador privileges.

Some connections this works.

Terminals v1.9a.

Regarding the Disk Drives option, are you sure your terminals.config file are the same on both machines as this does not appear to be an operating system issue.

I think the v1.9a release has a bug where the form does not appear if the current redirect settings are blank. (Apparently fixed after the 1.9a release see  http://terminals.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/changes/68884 )

As a workaround, if you open the terminals.config file using notepad and search for redirectDrives you will see lines such as

desktopSize="AutoScale" colors="Bit16" sounds="DontPlay" redirectDrives=""

You can change it to includes the drive letters you want, eg

desktopSize="AutoScale" colors="Bit16" sounds="DontPlay" redirectDrives="C:;E:"

or set it to all drives (note, true needs to be lowercase)

 desktopSize="AutoScale" colors="Bit16" sounds="DontPlay" redirectDrives="true"

Once you do this, the re-direct will work and also the form will appear allowing you to customize it further.


Warning : Before editing  terminals.config it is best to make sure that terminals is not running and also that you have a backup.


Re Desktop Share.

Works for me, but I'm using a version built from the latest source plus a few tweaks of my own which I am testing.
