Keep RDP sessions from disconnecting
article #551, updated 2718 days ago

The registry tweak below, helps. Reportedly it helps most if done on both server and client.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters]
"TcpMaxDataRetransmissions"=dword:00000010

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server]
"KeepAliveEnable"=dword:00000001

Remotely install MSIs using psexec
article #446, updated 3030 days ago

This works well in a domain environment. Here’s the template:

psexec \\DESTINATION -u "DOMAIN\Username" -p "PASSWORD" cmd /c "msiexec.exe /i "\\FILESERVER\SHARE\APP.MSI" /q /qn /norestart"

DESTINATION is the hostname of the system upon which you desire to install the MSI.

DOMAIN is the name of the domain. A domain login with rights sufficient for software login and access to the share is required.

FILESERVER is the hostname of any system on the LAN which has the MSI on a valid file share.

SHARE is the name of the file share on FILESERVER containing the MSI.

APP.MSI needs to be replaced with the MSI filename.

When Redirection Fails for Printers and Other Devices under RDP (Remote Access)
article #146, updated 3878 days ago

Try this registry entry on the client PC:

In HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Default\AddIns\RDPDR

Create a DWORD value named “FilterQueueType”.  Its value should be “FFFFFFFF” (eight F’s), hexadecimal.

Works especially well for unusual printers, e.g., USB et cetera.  Reportedly helps under XP, Vista, and 7.
