  1. Allow hard reset of frozen remote desktop

    Windows has been freezing completely on remote desktop.
    Commands such as ctrl + alt + end don't work, but the remote machine is still capable of recognizing my password, it just doesn't leave the "unlock computer" screen at all.

    Please allow for sending forced resets without depending on the remote interface.

    A command prompt from local machine that acts on the remote machine would be perfect.

  2. RSAT on Windows 10 2004

    We have search the Web and cannot install RSAT on this OS. nothing works. even after tearing holes in our security , we have fiddled and broken WSUS. and still we cannot get the RSAT tools installed.
    We have the stand alone installer, we have tried the option feature approach. It simply will not install because we have a WSUS server. The end game over thats all folk, go back Windows 10 1809 so that you can work.

  5. WSUS 10.0/6.3 cannot import update metadata through Microsoft Update Catalog

    Currently I tested WSUS 10.0 (Server 2019) and WSUS 6.3 (Server 2012R2). Both versions of WSUS cannot import updates through the built-in import function. The error code is 80131509. Is this feature currently disabled?

  8. [bug] RDS clipboard not working if disk mapping disabled

    I just found out that in Windows Server 2016 and 2019 if you disable disable option to allow mapping local Disk then clipboard is not working.

    As for now i never needed to restrict RDS to only support clipboard so i didn't catch this but i think this is a big issue.

    SO if you have configuration like in attachment then rdclipt won't start and you cannot user clipboard between client and server :/

  10. Need clarification on "Configure browsers to use Windows Integrated Authentication (WIA) with AD FS"

    I am facing an issue where I have enabled the SSO with ADFS . I am able to do sso login from Mozila and Chrome but IE 11 is not letting me logged in with sso. IE keep asking for credentials so many times(ADFS LDAP user's credentials) and failing . From this doc I have tried to configure the browser to use WIA by configuring the AD FS property WiaSupportedUserAgents to add the required values based on the browsers.

  11. Fix OAuth Token URL For ADFS Authentication

    When authenticating to a pool (Fall 2019 release) via ADFS, the scope= parameter is specified twice (example below) which are reported as errors on the ADFS server, obfuscating more meaningful data. It would be appreciated if this could be fixed:

    https://<adfs>/adfs/oauth2/token?granttype=refreshtoken&refreshtoken=<omitted>&scope=openid+logoncert&windowsapiversion=2.0&nux=1&siteid=501413&scope=logoncert&display=popup

  16. Make Deduplication powershell commands compatible with Powershell Core

    Right now when trying to use commands like Get-DedupStatus or Get-DedupVolume from PowerShell Core - the output is incorrect, i.e. content of some tables aren't displayed. If before using I load the module via Import-Module -SkipEditionCheck Deduplication, it starts working fine.

    Please mark the module as compatible with PowerShell Core and/or test if it is actually compatible!

    Related bug in PowerShell Core repository: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/12702

  17. ADFS Farm install

    Please update documentation to state
    "When installing an ADFS farm, the PDC emulator must be contactable"

    Otherwise the install will fail with a generic error. Try it and yo will see.

  18. Repair the bug in Microsoft Access Database engine 2010

    The KB4484126 and KB4484238 introduce a critical bug in Microsoft Access Database engine 2010.
    On Windows Server 2012, IIS App Pools running Access MDB databases are constantly crashing with these KB installed.
    Experiences on many production-level websites, running under 32-bit App Pools.
    Once these KB's are removed, IIS App Pools stop crashing, and are back to a normal state.
    The cure is worse than the CVE cause.

  19. klist sessions without exception would be nice: klist. errot: 0xc0000022/-1073741790

    klist sessions without exception would be nice:

    klist sessions result
    . error:0xc0000022/-1073741790

    yes. if I use an UAC shell this would not happen, but the idead of UAC is not my idea. Microsoft: If writing very secure and needed UAC programs, than test this idea.And this is not a remark for the programers, but for the MANAGER who get a bonus for the idea.
