On Windows 10 there are two apps to remotely connect to another computer. One is old Remote Desktop Connection (mstsc.exe) and the other is modern Remote Desktop (RdClient.Windows.exe hidden somewhere in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps). I have my own application on remote computer.

  • With the old mstsc.exe I can connect to remote host (Windows 7) and use local smart card reader in my app. SCardEstablishContext works.
  • With the new RdClient I can connect alright, but a call to SCardEstablishContext returns 0x8010001d (SCARD_E_NO_SERVICE).

Why is this happening for RdClient and how can I fix it?
