    We don't want to give users remote desktop access to the server so we have published applications on the surver and created RDP files that the users run.

    This works great on every user's pc with the exception of one machine. Each time this one machine runs the RDP file it crashes after about 10 -15 seconds. Here is the error message from the event viewer:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Application Error
    Event Category: None
    Event ID:    1000
    Date: 07/18/2012
    Time: 10:07:26 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: (X'D OUT)
    Faulting application mstsc.exe, version 6.1.7600.16722, faulting module 
    ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.6055, fault address 0x00010ef4.

    The weird part is... we can run the Remote Desktop Connection from the start menu and it connects to the server just fine.

    Has this happened to anybody and what did you do to fix it?
