See you in DC

In the San Francisco Airport getting ready for the direct flight to Washington DC.  And today should be Patch Tuesday release day to boot.  So if technology agrees with me I’ll be writing up my take on patch releases using the onboard wifi on the plane.


More info on tweaks needed for Windows 10

Rob aka Mr. Essentials is going to town with his additional tweaks needed to get Windows 10 working with Essentials.

Check out and and

Bottom line you need to make tweaks in the Group policy to make it see the 10’s due to the WMI filter.


RWW and RWA with Windows 10

So your client installed Windows 10 and he can’t use RWA/RWW now?

For SBS 2011 you can actually use the Edge browser without adjustment.  It actually works just fine with no adjustment.  If they want to use IE remember you need to use trusted site and compat mode. For SBS 2008 I’m checking with the product team but the story isn’t as good. AE_MGS in the forum found this workaround:Sign in to vote 

I found a work around for this on SBS 2008. Navigate to “C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\webapp\Remote” on the SBS server. In that directory you will find a file named tsweb.aspx, right click it and edit it. Go about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way through the file and look for the section that looks this:

sub window_onload()
Dim targetMachineName
Dim version
On Error Resume Next
version = MsRdpClient.Version
if Err then
msgbox ControlLoadFailed_ErrorMessage,0,RemoteDesktopCaption_ErrorMessage
exit sub
end if
On Error GoTo 0
if strcomp(version,”6.0.6000″) < 0 then
msgbox IncorrectClientVersion_ErrorMessage, 0, RemoteDesktopCaption_ErrorMessage
exit sub
end if

What I did was to comment out the second part of that statement so it looks like this

‘if strcomp(version,”6.0.6000″) < 0 then
‘   msgbox IncorrectClientVersion_ErrorMessage, 0, RemoteDesktopCaption_ErrorMessage
‘   window.close
‘   exit sub
‘end if


I have done limited testing and this seems to work, but I don’t know if there are any bad side effects at this time. Windows 7 clients do not seem to have issues connecting after this change was made. You also may have to temporarily adjust permissions on that file so that you can save the file. I also had the compatibility mode on and had it as a trusted site, but I have not tested it without those on.


Just sync’d up on WSUS

Is the July 29th cumulative update for Windows 10.  This includes several security fixes as well as non security fixes.

This is the new style of update – it’s a cumulative update, not individual patches.

And hang loose for a blog post on how to add group policy templates for 8/8.1 as we’re still waiting for the official ADMX files for Windows 10 as well as the RSAT tools.
