RDP: Dual Monitor Capability

July 11, 2011 at 19:32:34
Specs: Windows 7
I have about 15 HP thinclient's used to run an RDP session to our Cloud provider... Most were bought within the last year, however there were three that were purchased in the last month..

The ones purchased in the last month have an options labled "use all my monitors" in the display settings for the options on the RDP Options Screen... All the others purchased prior to this have not, yet they are all the same brand, make and model--- HP t5740

How do I tell what part of the system is responsible for this awesome little add in feature of Dual Screens in RDP? I'm not sure if it's a setting that was mistakenly enabled in the setup of these new thinclients, or if it's an updated driver, or OS, or graphics card?

Anyone have any idea of where I can look to narrow this down?

... Oh yeah- forgot to add--- I have probably 20 non-thin client desktops that do not have the dual screen option in RDP... Is there any type of update/upgrade that I can use to make this possible?

Figured it out... Microsoft didn't tell you that you needed the last TWO updates to RDP...
