        Decouple Windows Media Stack from Desktop Experience

        Some Products requiere Windows Media Services as a prerequisite for Installation (for example Exchange Server). Currently you have to install Dekstop Expirience to get these Services.

        The downside of this is, that Applications which require these services are automatically required to run with a GUI (no server core support because of Desktop experience prerequisites)

              Add cross-server service dependencies

              If I have an application that needs SQL to be running on another server, it would be great to be able to add a dependency in my services control panel that would prevent that service from being started until it saw SQL running on another server, with an optional startup delay afterward.

              In addition to this, in general, a "startup delay" you can specify in seconds for services would be beneficial. We've had some race conditions in our environment which have meant some services have failed to start due to network adapter/netlogon availabilty, and the options to correct this are…

                    Access to Windows10 UAP APIs

                    The promise of the new Windows10 Universal Apps is that they will run anywhere. That should include the server and Azure. I'd like to write my core libraries so that the code can be used on phones, tablets, PCs, Consoles and in the cloud.

                    I especially want access to the MediaComposition and Win2D libraries for rendering my animations to video which I can then send to Azure Media Services for transcoding.

                      Update ADMT to be able to migrate Windows Apps

                      We are currently waiting for Windows 10 to be fully supported within ADMT. We can migrate the user, system but all complete with errors regarding Windows store apps. I do not want to fork out extra $$ just because Microsoft hasn't updated their basic tool yet. If we could migrate properly we would have bought more CALs.

                        How to modify the default configuration of RDP?

                        In default configuration, security was set to 'Warn me if authentication fails'. I want to set 'Always connect, even if authentication fails' as default. I found Default.rdp in RDC Connections folder but can not find 'security' setting.

                              Task scheduler between clustered servers should have a way to easily configure it via GUI. Why not create it as a clustered service?
