RDP keeps disconnecting when trying to run a program as administrator

maninasia 1 Reputation point

Im connecting to my work server using RDP, all of a sudden last few days when i try to run certain programs on the server as administrator the RDP connection shuts down and the program doesn't open on the server.

It only started to happen a few days ago, im admin on the server and admin on my local machine.

It will open the program fine as a non admin (apart from visual studio which does it either way)

Anybody have any ideas why this may be happening?

    Try run the Windows Update and install all updates.
    If possible try connect using different IP and see if the problem persist?
