Mac Microsoft Remote Desktop Error Code 0x207


2018-4-19  Curious if you know that the correct MS Remote Desktop app is being used. There is a version that comes with Office 2011 for Mac, not sure about 2016 for Mac. Installing the new does not remove the old. I've had occasions when the old came up. You can verify by having your user describe the icon for the app. Feb 02, 2018 Hi there I have a mini running Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) and a MacBook running OSX 10.13.2. Both are connected to the same router through WiFi, both have access to the Internet. Jan 10, 2015 Question: Q: Remote Desktop for Mac won't connect (but will from Windows) I'm trying to remote onto a Windows 2012 Server using Remote Desktop Connection for Mac. Using the same credentials, it works from my Windows PC (using Remote Desktop for Windows), but trying to do it from my Mac I get the error.

What's new in this version:

- The key change in this update is the ability to switch between Scancode (CTRL+COMMAND+K) and Unicode (CTRL+COMMAND+U) modes when entering keyboard input. Unicode mode allows extended characters to be typed using the OPTION key on a Mac keyboard. For example, on a US Mac keyboard, OPTION+2 will enter the trademark (™) symbol.
