Remove grid lines in remote desktop

Computer Tips,Remove grid lines in remote desktop, Remote desktop issue

I am having been of late developing a Soft ware package in .NET Framework 3.5 for the LegaSync Project, to migrate the data from various legacy ERP systems (SAP,SYTELINE,MACPAC,MANMAN,JDE etc) to SQL server. when it came to production deployment, the client had hosted a server with the latest configuration ( Windows Server 2008 R2, which was a 64 bit machine.)

One of the client from an ERP had faced the issue of  getting annoying gridlines in her remote desktop sessions while logging into the remote machine. It was occuring regularly during every session. Sometimes it will take the entire window and other times it will only occupy a sub-area.

If you use Remote Desktop to remotely manage servers you might have probably ran into a situation recently where you've connected to a remote server and noticed grid lines or occasional "stray pixels" on your RDP window. This is due to a minor incompatibility between Windows Server Terminal Services and older versions of the RDP client.

Fortunately, the solution is very simple. Just download the Remote Desktop/Terminal Services Client 6.0 and install. You can find it here:
