Some components of an application may not be displayed correctly in a Terminal Services session if you connect to a terminal server by using RDC 6.1 from a client computer that is running Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP1, or Windows Server 2008
You use Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 6.1 to connect to a Windows-based terminal server from a client computer that is running Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3), Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1), or Windows Server 2008. You run an application in the Terminal Services session for some time. Eventually, you may experience that some components of the application are not displayed correctly.
Additionally, you may experience the following behavior when this problem occurs:
- If you disconnect from and then reconnect to the terminal server, the problem is resolved.
- If you redraw the components in the application, this problem is not resolved. For example, if you may try to make the components smaller or larger, this problem is not resolved.
- If you capture a screen shot of the Terminal Services session, you see the components are drawn correctly in the screen shot.
This problem does not occur with RDC 6.0 or earlier versions.
