Upcoming Article Series on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services

Hi Folks,

We, Kristin Griffin and Freek Berson, (Microsoft MVP’s for Remote Desktop Services), are planning on doing a series of articles focused on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services. The series will guide you through the new features and aspects of session virtualization and VDI deployment, and we’ll talk in depth about some of the underlying technologies. It’s our goal to write an article series that you will want to read so please share your thoughts on topics you would like to see covered. On December 9th we will take your input and use it to create our series Table Of Contents.

Look for this series to start in February 2013; links to the articles will be posted on both of our blogs.

December 2011 Article - TechNet Magazine: Virtualization: Use the RD Gateway

Virtualization: Use the RD Gateway -

This is an article on RD Gateway: reasons to use it, and specific ways to set it up in typical deployments. This article dives into these areas. There is also a Q&A session at the end where I answer common questions I get asked about RD Gateway.

Windows 8 IE10 will not open webpages

After installing Windows 8 consumer Preview IE 10 would only work if I accessed it via Explorer. The icon on the desktop would open IE but I could not get to any webpages.

Solution for me was to uninstall IE10 (in Programs and Features, disable the Windows Feature) and then reboot and re-add it.

After the second reboot, IE 10 on the Start page (Metro style app) worked fine.
