Comment 1 Henrik Andersson cendio 2013-04-03 10:46:02 CEST
Testing upstream rdesktop against Win8 Pro, the mentioned patches doesn't seem
to be needed at all ?

I tested to connect using 16/24 bit depth and graphics works as expected, however the mouse pointer behaves strange hidden from start an appears later in a bad shape...

- Sound redirection works, however there is some delay causing audio
  out of sync when testing a youtube clip.

- Smartcard redirection works, tested running tlclient in the remote desktop
  and enumeration / pin works as expected. However there are something thats
  not 100%, following message appears in terminal:
    WARNING: Bogus smart card control code 0x00fd0028

- Printer redirection doesn't seem to work at all, not printer presented in
  the session, i tried using redirection with specified printer driver that i
  believe is existing one.
- Tested different resolutions and bit depths and it seems to work as expected 
  so the provided patches are not needed at all ?

- Tested the keyboard as is and it works as expected except: specifying keyboard 
  layout does not affect on the remote end. The provided patches implements fast
  key path but that's not needed as far as i can tell. This is also reported in
  a comment on the link to patches by third part.

- CredSSP not tested due to machine doesn't belong to a domain.
