Windows : Remote Desktop crash immediately after session opening

By | November 15, 2018

I ran on this issue where the Remote Desktop Client crashed the second it opened the session.

There was a related entry in the Event Viewer that stated the following :

Faulting application name: mstsc.exe, version: 10.0.17134.112, time stamp: 0x82251f4e

It turned out that the issue was caused by a mapped printer. To resolve this issue I had to disable the printer mapping.

To do so, do the following the RDP client :

– Click on “Local Resources” tab
– Locate the “Local devices and resources” section at the bottom
– Uncheck the box “Printers”
