I can no longer use Remote Desktop (RDP) to remote into a server (Windows Server 2008 R2) on the same LAN, because sysdm.cpl is now missing from the server. Can I simply copy and paste the file from another installation?
Here’s my notes…
Windows Server 2008 R2
I receive the following message when trying to connect using RDP:
SystemPropertiesRemote.exe System Error
The program can’t start because sysdm.cpl is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling.
Process name: System Applet for the Control Panel
File location: C:\Windows\System32
From elevated command prompt i ran:
_ Result: could not repair all issues. See CBS.log (not included here, but i can provide if necessary)
Now I’m thinking I can just copy and paste the sysdm.cpl file, but need to obtain copy.
_ In Virtualbox, I installed evaulation copy of Windows Server 2008 R2.
_ I located the sysdm.cpl file, and copied to thumb drive.
Now, I’m just wondering if I can now copy and paste this single file to my active server, without creating any bigger issues.
