I have an .RDP file that I use on my existing Windows machine to connect to and run a RemoteApp on a Windows VM. This works fine and shows me the remote app as if it was running locally. I'm looking at Thinomenon since it seems it is one of the (the only) clients that is supposed to allow the same to occur when using a Mac.

My problem is the same .RDP file generates this error:

"Cannot connect because the Windows-based computer cannot be found.

Try to reconnect to the Windows-based computer, or contact your administrator."

So, what exactly do I need to do for this to work properly? Thanks!

Hello James,

possibly, Mac OS X does not understand Windows computer names which are used in .RDP files. I suggest to replace Windows computer name with IP address:

1) Open your .RDP file in Windows Notepad.
2) Find "full address:s:" line and replace Windows computer name with IP address
3) Save the file and copy it to your Mac

Hope it helps,

Sergey.

Sergey,

I am having the same issue. I tried IP, FQDN, and even added to my hosts file.

To verify the file, I also copied one from cord, and same issue occurred.

Interestingly enough, if I try to open the .rdp in cord manually, I get the same error, but if I open in MS RDC, it works fine.

I am running 10.8.3

Did this, didn't help.

Same issue and same error as the OP.

nslookup and Network Utility both resolve the FQDNS. It's also not specific to RemoteApp. I have an RDP file saved for use with Microsoft RDC that connects to a specific PC via full desktop session. Thinomenon RDC behaves the same with that RDP file as it does with RemoteApp files.

When using THMN RDC to connect to a full RDP session from within THMN RDC, it returns a "Temporary problem":

Quote:
You were disconnected from the Windows-based computer.
This is a temporary problem. Try to connect again.


Basically, I haven't gotten THMN RDC to do anything successfully.
