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”
