seems to be working on a new experience for . Company watcher, WalkingCat, reports a new client is in development that will leverage Azure Cloud technology.

By running the new Remote Desktop through the cloud, organizations will be able to run their own proprietary software in Azure.

WalkingCat published a client download link and says Microsoft appears to be modifying its existing client rather than building a new one from scratch.

“The actual client “msrdc.exe” seems to be a modified version of “mstsc.exe”, version 10.0.18838.1000, and the shell “msrdcw.exe” is a WPF app, thank god it's not another Electron app.”

Creating a new Remote Desktop solution for Windows 10 is something Microsoft may be doing just at the right time. This year, a mass migration of users will switch to Windows 10 as the former loses support.

Hundreds of millions of devices could upgrade and simply offering more IT Admin tools will help. The Remote Desktop will merge Azure and tools to allow a low-cost multisession solution that is scalable for companies.

It will also provide an easy and efficient way for organizations to deploy virtualized legacy proprietary applications. This is hugely important. Many businesses have stayed on Windows 7 because their older apps will not run on Windows 10. A robust Remote Desktop will allow them to run those apps.

Virtual Desktop

It is worth remembering, Microsoft is also working on its Windows Virtual Desktop. The service allows users to create a virtualization of Windows 7, Windows 10, Office 365 ProPlus apps and third-party apps. With WVD, customers receive remote desktop sessions by running virtualizations in Azure virtual machines.
