    Hello everyone :)

    First of all, sorry if this thread should not belong here. Mods, feel free to move this thread somewhere else you think is better.

    I've tried myself and couldn't build a installer for it. If we extract the contents of http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969084 and the copy files on correct locations, this works perfectly on any 2003 Server.

    Some more info on how bypass setup limits on this (from http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/archive...d-windows-vista-sp2.aspx?PageIndex=4#comments)

    "It's really easy to install the RDP 7.0 client on Windows Server 2003.

    Extract the WindowsXP-KB969084-x86-enu.exe with winrar.

    Open update.inf with notepad and edit

    MinNtServicePackVersion = 768

    and

    ThisServicePackVersion = 768

    to value 512 and save.

    Then you run update.exe and save the update.inf with the restored values of 768 before you get the error message "setup could not verify the integrity of the update.inf." Depending on your machine you might need to be quick.

    After saving you can click next and hey there you have RDP 7.0 ready to use in Windows server 2003."

    Any possible workaround to create a installer for this would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
