The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop client access licenses available for this computer. Please contact the server administrator.

Normally, this would be a remote server question, but everything checks out on the server.  What I would like to try is uninstalling and reinstalling the Remote Desktop Connection and start out from groud zero.  I am running Windows Vista.  How do I do this?

Thank you,
V

I had the same problem but it was only when trying to RDP from ONE computer. I found the solution was to delete the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing

I found the solution from this post <removed> so I don't claim credit for the solution.

Hope this helps others out as well.

Thanks

Hi Vkbooth,

Thank you for visiting Microsoft Answers.

• Which version of Windows Vista is installed on your computer?
• Were you able to establish remote desktop connection earlier?
• Is your computer connected to any domain or server?

Let’s try to reconfigure the remote desktop settings by following the steps given under ‘How do I install Remote Desktop Connection? ‘and ‘How do I enable Remote Desktop Connection on the computer I want to connect to? ‘in the links given below to:

Note: You cannot use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to computers running Windows Vista Starter, Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Vista Home Basic N, or Windows Vista Home Premium. You can, however, connect from those editions of Windows Vista to computers running other versions of Windows.
