Default Windows XP SP3 breaks Windows Home Server

If you upgrade to XP XP3 and try to access your Windows Home Server machine with the remote access client, as you're supposed to, you'll be in for a rude surprise.

You'll get an error message telling you that you must enable an Active X control in IE in order to continue. You can search the net for a while in vain trying to figure this out. But here's what will work:

Open the Tools menu in IE7 and select Manage Add-ons --> Enable or Disable Add-ons. Under the list of Disabled add-ons, you'll find "Microsoft RDP client control." Select that, and then click the Enable radio button. Click OK, and restart IE.

You should be okay again.
