RDP in WEC 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm wondering if there is a way to get remote desktop functionality in WEC2013.  I'm about to start a new project and would like to use the "latest" OS, but my application requires that users remotely connect to my device, as it won't have any screen or input device on its own.

    I'd prefer not to go WEC7 and start my new product on it.

  • I suspect the answer is no. The entire RDP support has been removed from Compact 2013 (and aoing for Compact 7 will only get you a Terminal Services Client).

    One of the options is to implement your own Remote Display solution (the Compact 7 CERDISP sample shows a way of doing this).
    use one of the open source VNC server like or

    Have you thought about implementing a Web (HTML/JavaScript) based UI for your device instead?
