FIX: You cannot start an application on a remote computer when you use Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) on a Windows Embedded Compact 7 touch screen device
- You run a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based image on a touch screen device.
- You use Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to connect the device to a remote computer.
- You double-tap the icon of an application on the remote computer in the RDP session.
Note This issue occurs almost exclusively on touch screen devices on which the precision of touch is less accurate.
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

By default, this update is disabled after you apply it. To enable the update, set the DWORD value of the EnableDoubleClickDetect registry entry to 1. By default, the EnableDoubleClickDetect DWORD value does not exist, and you must create it in the following registry subkey:
This update uses the values of the DblTapDist and DblTapTime settings. These values specify the time and space threshold settings that define consecutive taps or clicks as double-taps or double-clicks. The default value for the DblTapDist setting is 20 pixels, and the default value for the DblTapTime setting is 600 milliseconds. You can optimize these settings for platforms that require more accurate tap or click precision. To optimize these settings, change the DWORD value of the following two registry entries:
Note By default, these registry entries are not present, and you must create them.
Known issueAfter you enable this update, consecutive taps or clicks still do not work as intended in an application if the following conditions are true:
- The application is running on the RDP server.
- You want to perform consecutive taps or clicks that are within the values of the DblTapDist andDblTapTime settings in the application.
- You do not want the consecutive taps or clicks to be considered as a double-click.
