Latest update to Microsoft Remote Desktop - version - 8.0.27 breaks Remote Desktop Manager

Hello,

I just updated my Microsoft Remote Desktop to the version released on March 14. Remote Desktop Manager is not able to RDP to Windows machines any more. It shows an error on the bottom of the screen "Unable to find Microsoft Remote Desktop. Get it". It was working till the update was done. I can open the Microsoft Remote Desktop by itself to connect and it works fine. I wonder why Remote Desktop Manager is not able to find the application. Does anyone else face the same issue?

Thanks,
Aby

Hi,
I will assign this to our Mac dev team. They will verify this.

Hi,

Are you connecting in external mode? Is that what you mean when you say that RDM can't find the RDP application?

Thanks, Xavier. I have set the "Display" option as "External". The error message is displayed on the bottom status bar and disappears after a few seconds.

Any update on this? Is there a way to manually tell it where the RDP program path is located?

Sorry for the delay.

It seems that the latest version of Microsoft Remote Desktop is (for whatever reason) spelled MicrosoftRemoteDesktop.app (without the spaces).

We'll fix it on our side. In the mean time, you can rename your MicrosoftRemoteDesktop.app to Microsoft Remote Desktop.app and it should work again.

Best regards,

Awesome! It worked. Thanks Xavier.

Confirm temporary resolution by renaming app with spaces.
But each AppStore update (latest today 20 march) needs renaming.

I know and I'm sorry for the inconvenience. We've made it so RDM search both the app with and without the spaces. It'll therefore no longer requires you to rename the Microsoft Remote Desktop app.

I'll inform you when the next release is out.

Best regards,
