Remote Session Was Disconnected Because Client Access License Stored on this Computer Has Been Modified

The last day I was working at a client and tried to login via a remote desktop session. Although this was working earlier, I now suddenly got this error:


The remote session was disconnected because the remote desktop client access license stored on this computer has been modified

My colleague could still log in so the connection to the desktop was not an issue. After searching a little bit I stumbled upon this article.

The steps you have to follow are:
  • Edit the registry (if you have no clue how, please stop reading and ask someone from IT to do it for you)
  • Just to be sure, backup the registry or create a restore point
  • Delete the key located at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing
 
Now the next time the client connects to the server, it will obtain another license.
