Windows 8 Connection Warning

Topics: Developer Forum
Jul 11, 2012 at 10:42 PM


on Windows 8 Release Preview Terminals generats on every RDP Connect a warning "A website is trying to start a remote connection".

Is any chance to supress this?

I have the same problem, any solutions yet?

I cannot replicate this on Windows 8 Release Preview.

Please check this page:

Confirm same problem on Win 8 Ent RTM (but with mRemote). If anybody will found solution please let know.

I'm having the exact same problem. Not sure if this is an mRemote issue or if it's a Windows 8 RTM issue. If anyone finds a work around, please post it. 


Thanx. -Jim

In fact I start to use mRemoteNG. It have no such "bug" with 8.

chw, thanks so much for posting! Downloaded mRemoteNG and I don't get the security warning anymore. You are a rockstar!

I am also having this problem on Win 8 Enterprise x64.

This now happens under Windows 7 after the RDP 8.0 update.

Did you try the the KB mentioned in this discussion?

Oct 26, 2012 at 9:47 PM

That update (KB2592687) is what "breaks" it...removing it will make the warning message go away, but also removes RDP 8.0 support.

Oct 28, 2012 at 10:32 PM

I just started getting prompted this after installing the RDP 8.0 support on Windows 7.  I guess I'll uninstall this update.  It would be nice if the update could remain (maybe an update for Terminals?).

Here's a possible fix from someone who is using the ActiveX RDP control which I think Terminals uses too.

"... I used a different id for the control (MsTscAx.MsTscAx instead of MSRDP.MSRDP)"

Oct 28, 2012 at 10:48 PM

Indeed, it would seem that the Terminals devs need to implement the updated MsTscAx control.  People running Windows 8 are stuck, as there's no RDP 8.0 update to remove.

@emoxam: I depends from which version you upgraded. Only upgrade from latest official build are supported. Also keep in mind, that nightly builds (3.0 is not out) are only for testing purposes and we don't guarantee, that everything works.
