How to: remove TS licenses from an RDP client

Postby chicagotech » Tue Apr 03, 2007 4:29 pm

In a case, you just upgrade your computer or the TS license in the computer is damaged, you may need to remove it from the TS client. The license is stored in the client's registry.

Thirty-two bit RDP clients store their license under the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing.

To clean the client's license cache, just delete this key and its subkeys. The next time the client connects to the server, it will obtain another license.

For 16-bit RDP clients, run regedit /v. Then delete the keys under "\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing" to clean the client's license cache. You can also delete the BIN files from \Windows\System\Regdata.

The RDP client for Macintosh stores the license in a file on the local computer in the folder hierarchy under /users/Shared/Microsoft/RDC Crucial Server Information/. To clean the Macintosh client's license cache, delete the contents of this folder. The client will try to obtain a new license from the server the next time that it connects.

You need to go to the client machine and delete a registry key.

1. On the client, navigate to the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing.

2. Click MSLicensing.

3. On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.

4. In the File name box, type mslicensingbackup, and then click Save.

5. If you need to restore this registry key in the future, double-click mslicensingbackup.reg.

6. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion of the MSLicensing registry subkey.

7. Close Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
