Fix for Windows XP not able to Remote Desktop to Windows 2008 Server

It’s a simple registry fix, you can read the KB Article 951608 from Microsoft.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951608

This will then allow you to connect to Windows 2008 Server computers as well as Windows 7 computers.

UPDATE: This won’t work for mRemote or mRemote-NG, for some reason you can only use for instance “mstsc” or Remote Desktop Client directly.
