  1. Error code: 0x4

    I'm encountering this error below across multiple machines, networks, and versions of MRD when attempting to log into a PC from several Macs. Sometime the application works, half the time it doesn't. When the error appears, it happens across multiple machines. It has also kicked me off a session in mid-use. I've tried 3 versions of MRD and it occurs on all of them. What is the solution?


    Your session ended because of an error. If this keeps happening, contact your network administrator for assistance.

  2. Connection Centre at forefront when navigating back to MRD Beta

    Version 10.4.0 (1771) beta is an improvement on the foreground/background and menu behaviour. However, having navigated away from the app and then returning back to it either by using the Dock or the Command Tab shortcut keys, the Command Centre jumps in front of the Workspace in use and always has to be closed or the workspace clicked on to continue work.

    Even if the Connection Centre has been closed, it still opens in front of the workspace during navigation.

  3. Error Code 0x300005f When Connecting

    When attempting to connect via Remote Desktop Beta for Mac to a local Windows 10 machine, I get Error Code 0x300005f after inputting login credentials.

    There's not much information available about the error code, so not really sure where to go to find out more.

    Possible that there are some port forwarding or firewall issues, but pinging the IP address shows the appropriate port is open.

    When the Windows Firewall is fully disabled, I get error code 0x300005e.

  4. WVD will not allow only one monitor

    The lack of a single monitor option for WVD remote access is unacceptable and forces me to use only the browser client which is a less immersive experience.

  5. Redirection folders - wrong file date after save (dates files 11/29/2076)

    Reported here https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/1d64b564-74b4-4a2e-b38f-fd8550fcb172/redirection-folders-wrong-file-date-after-save?forum=winRDc

    When using folder redirection from a Mac, files created by the remote server to the redirected folder results in those files being dated as 11/29/2076.

  7. Client freezes often on Catalina 10.15.4 the same like 10.3.8

    It freezes suddenly the same way like it was on 10.3.8.
    I have to disconnect/connect each time or sometimes force shut down app. It happens really often.

  8. connection center window state is no longer remembered

    Hi,

    With a recent update, the connection center windows is now ALWAYS displayed on top off all other remote session windows when I command-tab back to Microsoft Remote Desktop Beta. If I had closed the connection center window, it reappears. This is frustrating, I need to close the connection center window every time I return back to the Remote Desktop app. In the past, it remembered my window status/state.

  11. If you connect through a Gateway and your Mac goes to sleep, or you switch WiFi networks, the connection locks up and does't reconnect

    If you connect through a Gateway and your Mac goes to sleep, or you switch WiFi networks, the connection locks up and does't auto-reconnect, sometimes it tries, and never manages it, but mostly the windows hang.

  13. 'use all monitors' does not work when 'optimize for retina displays' is selected

    I upgraded to remote desktop version 10.3.9 (1767) today, and i can no longer start a remote desktop session that runs on all my external monitors. Current MacOS: 10.15.4

    When the 'optimize for retina displays' option is selected all the monitors are not used even if the 'use all monitors' checkbox has been selected. so i can only use one screen at a time which is pretty useless...

    If 'optimize for retina displays' is unchecked then the rdp session uses all monitors but the text is terribly blurry and almost unreadable, again pretty useless…

    Is there a fix for this…

  15. Opening a remote connection always requires two double-clicks

    This isn't so much an idea as a problem. For some time now any preconfigured RDP connection I open always requires that I double-click the connection once, wait one or two seconds, and then double-click again to get the connection to start. After which I always get the message: "We couldn't retrieve your password from your keychain, please enter your password again." And, attempts to define a username and password within the preferences screen always fail.

  16. IT hangs the desktop window. One doesn't notice until you try to work in it.

    When this one gets disconnected/looses connection, it hangs the desktop window. One doesn't notice until you try to work in it and it's unresponsive.

  17. fails to quit

    MRD 10.4.0 Fails to Quit

    I select quit and it puts up a dialog that says, "Remote Desktop is shutting down..." with a "Quit Now" button. Left on it's own, it never quits. You need to press the button. It should promptly Quit when you tell it to. (What is it doing? Why can't it just quit? )

  19. Gemalto smart card stopped working

    Hi I went through with You (MS) and Gemalto of how to connect a remote smart card to a terminal session. The patch you made fixed the issue .. However this patch has since been removed and reverted to the original issue. From memory this was something to do with how MS handled the cert on the card.

  20. Cannot paste into password field of a locked PC

    When a PC I'm RDPed into locks itself due to timeout, and presents me with the lockscreen and a Password field, it's not possible to paste into this. This is detrimental to security because having to type it manually is error-prone and discourages the use of a password manager and complex password.

    Using MS RDP client beta 10.4.0 (1790) on macOS Catalina 10.15.5 Beta (19F83c). Target PC is running Windows Server 2016. Thanks.
