“Xxxx application” cannot be used with Remote desktop connection or Terminal services

Posted by essjae on November 2, 2009

If you’re seeing this message and you’re thinking “what the heck, I’m not using RDP, I’m using WinVPC locally,” you actually are using remote desktop if you have the Integration Components enabled.  WinVPC uses RDP as the interface.

You can get around this restiction by disabling the Integration Components for your VM.
