This package was approved by moderator flcdrg on 1/28/2018.

The goal of this project is to enable Remote Desktop Host support and concurrent RDP sessions on reduced functionality systems for home usage.
RDP Wrapper works as a layer between Service Control Manager and Terminal Services, so the original termsrv.dll file remains untouched. Also this method is very strong against Windows Update.

To install RDP Wrapper, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install rdpwrapper

To upgrade RDP Wrapper, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade rdpwrapper

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
