  1. If you get an access denied error, you would need to enable a group policy to allow unlisted programs to be started.
            To this end, open the Group Policy Editor by going to:

            Start > Run > gpedit.msm

  1. On the Group Policy Editor navigate to:
          Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services >Remote Desktop Session Host > Connections > Allow users to connect remotely by using Remote Desktop Services.

  1. Double-click on this policy and then click on the checkbox next to Enabled.

  1. Afterward, you’ll have to update the group policies. In order to do this, call gpupdate /force from a Command Prompt window elevated as an Administrator.
