SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You run the Remote Desktop Connection application on a Windows Embedded CE 6.0-based device. The device uses the Quarter VGA (QVGA) display resolution. In this scenario, the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) user interface does not fit the screen of the device.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the setting for the remote desktop size is too large for the screen on the device.

Note This setting is configured in a private code file that is named Cstscbase.lib. Therefore, you cannot customize the display resolution.

RESOLUTION
