    Default WTF Microsoft

    My Windows VM I run through parallels to RDP to my work PC updated itself - seemingly to some insider preview though I don't recall ever signing up to that - and now RDP doesn't work... the shift key doesn't work in full-screen RDP sessions only windowed.

    RDP. FFS, they broke remote desktop. Unbelievable. I found some chat online that this has been a known bug for 2-3 months at least.

    Currently "restoring your previous version of windows" which I never tried before... no idea what version it's trying to roll back to or how long this will take.

    Presumably I can bill MS for the loss of working time...

    Roll back is usually pretty painless so fingers crossed you will be OK. I use RDP a heck of a lot as well so will not be impressed if I get that update

    Seems OK. My VM had auto-updated to version 1511 from 14-something (my main desktop is on 1607)

    Weirdly, my VM seems while running to have jumped back to 1511 again, I'm wondering if it's going to keep re-applying the update or something.


    AArgh.

    That's why i have disabled the automatic updates with a group policy, it still moans about new updates once a day but i just dismiss the annoying prompt.

    Still can't get myself to implement the Final solution and run a WSUS where you still have proper control over what reaches the clients.

    Aren't you mac based? Can't you use the Mac RDP client to talk to the remote windows machine?

    I have to VPN and I prefer to run the VPN sandboxed, hence I run a VM through parallels and RDP from there (plus the Mac version of the VPN and RDP clients aren't amazing)
