I'd be battling a crazy case of the mstsc dumps. Basically what happens is this; I'll remote to a server, and just as i'm getting started MSTSC (RDP) crashes. Frustrated as this just started happening no, major changes that should affect the rdp systems. I'm running windows 8 enterprise
it happened just about everytime to a windows 2008r2 box, or through Remote Desktop services. I scoured Microsoft's new "Support site" which is a slap in the face to people who've relied on being able to us it but i digress.
So I started up windows debugger, and I had to be quick about it since the main pain was through rds (use F6). Thanks for split screens. I was able to attach to mstsc.exe quick enough to catch the first break point. So i continued from that point till the actual crash. which led me to a dell throwing a c0000005 access denied message. The DLL was dlxbujdm.dll which I traced back to a Dell printer driver... I really don't like Dell printers.
It was my default printer and never had a problem before, so what happened??? I haven't a clue, But I removed the printer driver and package, rebooted and no more crashes. If you get a failure in removing, reboot and try removing again. I think you'll find it'll work that time.
hope this helps someone else from a headache.
I agree, drivers are the problem sometimes. BTW, if you need to redirect local printer into RDP session I'd recommend you to use third-party software, like http://www.printer-for-remote-desktop.com/ . It doesn't require to have printer drivers installed on the server.ReplyDelete

I recently manually updated my Dell Printer driver because it was printing in negative. It fixed the problem and then this issue replaced it. I didn't have time to uninstall everything and found that Simply disabling printers as a resource in the RDP settings allowed me to connect. This might help if you're pushed for time and don't need to print anything from the RDP session.ReplyDelete
That is certainly a workaround. Although it depends on the server os that you are connecting too as well.Delete
