we have windows server 2008 R2 installed on our server. we use remote desktop to access it via LAN from 8 -10 client machines (6 different users). While this setup was working correctly for the past year.The following error occurs on SOME of the client machines "Disconnected due to an error in licensing protocol" Can I know how to fix this? if there is a problem with licensing why does it occur only on some client machines? (all clients use windows 7) Thanks.

Never mind. I was able to do it with the following steps: First delete the registry folder MSLicensing from the client machine. Next, Run Remote desktop in administrator mode.

This problem made by some kind of caching of remote desktop licensing in clients you can solve this by remove the bellow key in registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing

It's much convenient to make a reg file and run it so .

  1. Make a empty text file
  2. Name it "mypatch.reg" or "mypatch.reg"
  3. Put bellow text in it and save it

     Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
     [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing]
    
  4. Run it by dubble click on file!

It should remove the key.
