  3. m says:

    checksum failed

  4. kaygee says:

    Incorrect checksum here too.. Could it have something to do with having a Service Pack installed, i.e. differing versions of termsrv.dll

    Will this work with Win7-32bit or Win7-64bit? I have Win7-64bit and I get error “Unknown Checksum..”

    Did run the script on my win 7 64 bit home edition, it worked, I can connect, but what I want is to use sound card of rdp server.
    Is it possible to achieve?

    I Will have to visit again when my course load lets up – however I am taking your Feed so i could read your internet site offline. Cheers.

    To everyone who keeps getting “Error: Unknown Checksum… Exiting” There is a way around it.

    1. Right ckick on install.cmd and select edit.
    2. Scroll down to the :CHECK lable or just search for it (ctrl-f).
    3. Delete everything between :CHECK and :PATCH.
    4. File->Save As… call the file whatever you want but make sure it ends in .cmd
    5. Run the new file as an administrator as above and enjoy!

    This method completley skips the cheksums all together. I can not garentee the sucess of this method and, of course, am not responsible if something goes wrong and your system dies.

  10. torrentails says:

    F***cking smiliey faces!

    That should say PATCH, with a : at the front.

  11. torrentails says:

    Oh sorry just another fair warning, this patch stopped woring completley in Win7 Service pack 1.

    Try this instead:

  12. joe says:

    when i download the first step, install is missing install.cmd and i guess that is why i cant go further. what should i do?

  13. max2us says:

    It seems to work however, I cannot see the active remote screen but a new screen. It looks like my RDP is starting another session just like another user would log in. So, in a way it works because I can access the remote desktop but I cannot see the active screen that may be managed by remote user.I hope that this makes sense.
    Thanks for your patch.

  14. Bad Self says:

    It works fine in my intranet but I can not connect from internet even though I opened up port on firewall. Any ideas?

  15. I S A says:

    Thank you for your kind assistance but I have the following issue. In the command screen, it says that the termsrv.dll file has some checksum issue though it ends up running successfully and shows that the “Service is listening” and then “Done”. But, I am still not able to connect to my laptop from elsewhere. Please assist. Thanks!

  16. Misiek says:

    @I S A I have same on my Windows 7 computer, I think some update from Microsoft change this :(, now my RDP stop work, before Updates all was fine.

  17. Roger says:

    Hey, after installing the latest win update the connection stops working. this update overwrites the file tersrv.dll After starting the concurrent RDP Patcher.exe , it shows unknown checksum.
    I can not patch the file again. Thanks for any information to overcome this error. With the previous version it was working.

    I am trying to connect from a Windows 8.1 machine to a Windows 7 home computer. I downloaded your patch and ran It on the Windows 7 home computer. Now the remote desktop trys to connect It get to the “Please wait” screen than just goes back to the remote desktop screen. Can someone help me? Please email a reply.

  19. willwilborn says:

    Until we find a way to correct the specific file, I performed a system restore back before the update and turned updates off temporarily.

    For anyone trying to do this on Windows 7 SP1 and getting the ‘unknown checksum error’ I recommend this:

    It worked for me! It’s basically a different patcher that’s meant to do the same thing. You have to register on the blog to download the file, but that seems to be without trouble.

    Hope this helps!

    The missingRemote patch is version 4 (as of today 2/6/15)
    There is a version 6, which deals with failure after Win Updates KB2984972/KB3003743 are installed.
    You can find the V6 link in the missingRemote comments near the end. You don’t need to register to use the V6 link. The download is a bit tacky, but seems to be safe.

    V6 worked fine for me: running Win8.1 RemoteTerminal to a Win7 Home Premium SP1 machine.

    Beware: If you (re)install a new missingRemote patch over an old one, you have to delete Win/Sys32/termsrv.dll before running the patch, or tweak the install.cmd script.
