Remote Desktop Connection Location

Microsoft Logo
Problem: I need to use Microsoft Remote Desktop Client on Windows XP, but can't find it. Trying to install the program from Microsoft's web site results in an installer error stating it is already installed.

Solution: The Remote desktop connection is located in the following place:
c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mstsc.exe

To run the program, just click Start --> Run and enter mstsc. To create a shortcut, navigate to c:\windows\system32 then right drag the file to the desktop.
