Hello,

As I understand, you are launching your RDP session in external mode. Am I correct?

It's not possible for us to send the password in external mode to the Microsoft RDP because RDP refuses it. Microsoft doesn't offer the possibility to send the password on Mac.

If it's available someday, we will integrate it.

Best regards,



Jeff Dagenais

Hello Jeff

Thanks for the reply.
This limitation is not present in the previous version RDP app (8.0.43), the external mode work without asking for password.
Do you confirm?

Hi,

This shouldn't be possible (no matter which version of MS Remote Desktop you're using) as we do not pass the password to the RDP session. We launch the MS Remote Desktop application with a generated .rdp file, and such file does not supports password into it.

We've been investigating alternative way to pass the password to MS Remote Desktop directly through it's UI when it prompt for it, but this hasn't been implemented yet (and never have been).

If you were able to connect with previous version of MS Remote Desktop without being prompt by the application for a password, there must have been some special configuration that I am not aware of on the MS Remote Desktop application itself.

Best regards,

Xavier Fortin
