    Hi Everyone,

    This has me stuck - I have installed the latest download of Server 2008 Standard 32 Bit from the MS site, adn installed it - all fien so far. But when it comes to installing RDP in the Roles Wizard, RDP is not there, but Terminal Services is. And it is the old TS, not RDP inclusive of TS.

    I thought all Server 2008 has has RDP as a repalcement for Terminal Services. Any ideas what I can do next to get RDP Role installed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, You have mistaken & downloaded the old version of windows 2008 which has Terminal Services, If you require Remote Desktop Services its in Windows 2008 R2, and if i remember correctly its only available in 64-bit

    Hope this helps.
