Some functions not working
Just recently switched from version 8 to this version. Heres a few things that I've found not working on version 10.
RDP sessions now comes with a warning because of invalid cert when connecting, we have internal CA server
where we connect to machines through DNS names, and this worked without getting cert warnings in version 8.
The "If folder redirection is enabled for Remote Resources or RDP files, redirect" is not working
when connecting to RDP sessions with the "Local resources" enabled.
Other features that would be nice is to be able to drag RDP items (miltiple selection) from one group to other group (without having to go into each RDP and choose which group)
And beeing able to create groups within groups.
Everytime the program is closed, the window resets to my monitor 1 despite it was on my monitor 2 when closed (also happens when program is closed on monitor 3)
Please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can better understand these issues and see if they can be resolved.
Cannot import from version 8
I keep getting "Failed to import credentials from Microsoft Remote Desktop 8 because the credentials data is corrupted. Please open Microsoft Remote Desktop 8 at least once, and try again" when trying to import from version 8. Not going to manually export/import a three digit number of remote desktop profiles so for now, version 10 is non-functional to me :(
Does not suit my needs
Just tried this new 10 on my 2017 Macbook Pro 13” with 2 external monitors attached.
It seemed that the user-interface had been given more thought, which is a plus, but when I launched a RDP-session, it retained the resolution of the builtin-screen (1400x900), even though the app was running on one of the external monitors (2560x1440). No matter what I did, I could not get it to default to full screen. This is not a problem with version 8, using the exact same settings, as the settings are drawn from a remote ressource.
When I tried to revert to version 8, something when wrong, as version 8 no longer could “remember” my remote ressources. I had to power off the laptop og start fresh, before it started acting normal again.
I will not recommend this version in its current state.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
