Known issues

Important Follow the steps in this section carefully. Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Before you modify it, back up the registry for restoration in case problems occur.
Issue 1
Consider the following scenario:
  • You install this update on a computer, and then you subscribe to a workspace.
  • You uninstall the update from the computer.
  • You try to unsubscribe from the workspace.
In this scenario, the operation fails, and the workspace remains registered.

This issue occurs because the Windows 7 cannot delete the registry keys that are created by this update.

To work around this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, type regedit.exe in Start Search box, and then press Enter to start Registry Editor.
  2. Browse to the following location:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Workspaces\Feeds
  3. Find the registry key in which the URL value matches the URL of the workspace feed that you want to remove.
  4. Delete the registry keys that you find.
For example, you can delete the registry key by using the following command:
reg delete HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Workspaces\Feeds\{A6851E3B-B228-4EEA-A01E-8D3968CDA34F}
Issue 2
Consider the following scenario:
  • You install this update on a computer, and then you subscribe to a workspace.
  • You uninstall the update from the computer.
In this scenario, you occasionally receive one of the following RunDLL error messages:
Error in tsworkspaceMissing entry: WorkspaceStateNotify2
Error in tsworkspaceMissing entry: TaskUpdateWorkspaces2
This issue occurs because the update creates new scheduled tasks to keep your subscription up to date. The task runs a new function that no longer exists after the update is uninstalled.

To work around this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click All Program, click Accessories, and then click Task Scheduler.
  2. Open Task Scheduler Library under Task Scheduler (local), and then browse to the following location:
    Microsoft\Windows\RemoteApp and Desktop Connections Update\
  3. Open the subfolder that represents your user name.
  4. Delete the following tasks:
    • Update connections
    • Report update status
    Note To delete a task, right-click the task, and then click Delete.
