  • Have you tried copying it to the server Desktop, while your RDP'd into the server and then trying from there?

  • Thank you so much.  It seems so simple but the documentation said to install it from the Software shared folder and that never worked.  I've spent a good part of 4 days trying to change security settings and anything else I could think of.  I even submitted a but to Connect 4 days ago but have not gotten an answer.

     

    Thanks again

  • I had the same problem.  Copying it to the desktop via my computer and then unblocking it took care of it for me. 

    Seems like the instructions should be fixed.
