Connection dialog, when the files mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll are manually copied from a working Windows 2000 machine to /windows/system32 in the Wine installation.
What does not
Installer, msrdpcli.exe.Â Installation process proceeds until the dialog box for "Installing Remote Desktop Connection. The program features you selected are being installed" appears.Â Installer then terminates with error dialog "Remote Desktop Connection cannot be installed because your operating system already has a built in version."
Server connections.Â The connection dialog box from a manual installation (copying mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll from a working Windows 2000 installation) never completes the connection.Â
After several minutes, an error dialog appears and states "Fatal error - error code 7.Â The session will be disconnected.Â Your computer may be low on memory.Â After closing some applications, try to reconnect the session."
What was not tested
Everything else.Â No connection was possible.
Used winecfg to set Windows 2000 environment for all above tests. Installation also failed as above when Windows XP environment was used.
