Is the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 Administration Tools Pack the only way to install the Remote Desktops MMC add-in on Vista/Win7 x64 workstations?
Are there any better, low cost alternatives?
the problem is the RD MMC add-in uses the /console switch for console connections, this has been superseded by /admin in later versions of windows though, so it doesn't really work any more
Have a look at Terminals over at CodePlex (http://www.codeplex.com/Terminals). Its a great free little multi-terminal program. Not without its flaws, but still a very good app.
Your going want the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 .
Once you install this update, go into control panel, prgrams, and turn on windows features.
The Remote desktops mmc is under the Role Administration tools branch.
