VDI solution for VS2010 desktops using RDS and MSTSC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have any experience of running virtualised (Hyper-V) desktops via RDS which host VS2010 running under Windows 7 and can MSTSC v6.1 be used to connect from the remote clients?

  • Hi Vlad,

    For your concern, I need to do some clarification with you.
    Do you mean that you want to remote one Windows 7 machine which hosts VS2010 via Hyper-V?

    This forum is for the support of Visual Studio installation. I'm not quite familiar with Hyper-V or RDS.
    If yes, I think that your concern might be related to Hyper-V connection instead of Visual Studio itself. You can try Windows Server forums to get more useful help.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen

  • Hi Yichun,

    Apologies for the late response - My alerts were not working (hopefully I've fixed that now!). To clarify we are considering implementing a VDI solution for centralised desktops:

    We would like to host a number of virtual machines under Hyper-V (running under Windows Server 2008 with the Hyper-V role). These machines will be Windows 7 and will have VS2010 installed (probably Premium). We would like to access them remotely from locked down desktops which have the MSTSC v6.1 client. Is this possible or will they need to access via the new Remote Desktop Services or via some other means?

    Regards

    Vlad

    As I mentioned above, I'm not quite familiar with Windows Server. Sorry for that.

    Thank you for your understanding!
