I've just upgraded a desktop machine to windows 10, from windows 7. This machine had rdp connections to several server machines (win2008 r2) all of which worked fine pre-upgrade.

On each new connection now the display seems corrupted, changing any of the experience settings on the rdp connection doesn't improve anything at all.

Here is a sample screenshot:

Does anybody have any information on how something like this could be fixed?

  • Reinstall lateat video card driver in your desktop. – yagmoth555 Aug 11 '15 at 23:16
  • I tried that but it made no visible difference :( – Terry Kernan Aug 13 '15 at 20:50

Answering my own question, I found that although my RDP connections worked, it used an older version of RDP seemingly.

To resolve the issues, I had to download a new RDP program from the Windows Store called Microsoft Remote Desktop Preview. Once I connected with that new program, it worked fine, no visual issues, though I couldn't import my previous rdp profiles.
