Windows XP Connection Bar

By hstorm ·
I need to get rid of the connection bar in Windows XP remote Desktop. I have disabled the setting on the display tab of the remote desktop connection. On some machines it works and on other it doesn't.

Any ideas?

Caused by Version of Remote Desktop

by klapper In reply to Windows XP Connection Bar

I've been having the same problem. From what I can determine, the cause is the version of the remote desktop software. Version 5.1.2600.1106 can prevent the connection bar from ever showing. XP Service Pack 2 updates the software with version 5.1.2600.2180. This version cannot prevent the connection from ever showing. Another version with the same problem is 5.2.3790.0.
Just to clarify, the problem is that when the "Display the connection bar when in full screen mode" check box is unchecked, the connection bar is still displayed initially. It then disappears after about 5 seconds and stays off. The problem is when it is first displayed.
