I recently performed a P2V on an old OEM XP installation.
This required running an in place install to convert from an OEM to a VLK. On completion I was unable to connect to remote desktop. netstat -ano | find "3389" returns nothing.
I tried axing and the [HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server] keys and importing from a known good source. This resulted in the service listening on 3389 but failing with "an error occurred while the connection was being established".
As far as I can tell the only difference between these two sets of registry keys are the color depth, a few printers and a VIDEO subkey:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\VIDEO\disc] "VgaCompatible"="\Device\Video0" "\Device\Video0"="\REGISTRY\Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TSDDD\Device0"
I also tried a frequently referenced KB article and devcon. No change.
devcon.exe -r install %windir%\inf\machine.inf root\rdpdr
I'm at a loss as to a solution to this issue.
EDIT - I'm sure that the necessary service is running and that the system is set up to allow remote access.
