Chris Osbornes picture of (Almost) Every Wedge Computer he has Got : retrobattlestations

On reddit: [WayBackWedge Week(Almost) Every Wedge Computer I’ve Got (

Via: [WayBack] My entry for #WedgeWeek on #RetroBattlestations. (Almost) every wedge computer I’ve got. No exact duplicates but a few are from the same series. Glad … – Chris Osborn – Google+ where I commended “Nice collection! I’ve used at least 10 or 12 of them in one way or the other (: Need to take a closer look when not on the road.”

So behind a normal machine instead of a smartphone, I think this is the list going from the top left in a counter clockwise and spiral order to the center:

  • I marked the ones I ever used (either at school, friends or university) with a star, and added some links later; mostly from Wikipedia/Wikimedia.

** I’m still not sure why, as there was a Dutch user group (see, but somehow no people in my “circles” me had one.

stascorp/rdpwrap: RDP Wrapper Library – up to 15 RDP sessions on any Windows edition including basic/home/core

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/04

RDP Wrapper works as a layer between Service Control Manager and Terminal Services, so the original termsrv.dll file remains untouched. Also this method is very strong against Windows Update.

I’ve tested this on Windows 7 Home Premium and it works fine, see the log below. On Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and up, I had to get the rfxvmt.dll files (in %windir%\System32 and %windir%\SysWOW64) from a Windows Professional system, see Known Issues. You can download them from the repository as well.

  1. Download from
  2. Unzip
  3. Run the install.bat:
RDP Wrapper Library v1.6
Installer v2.3

Note that this “error” is normal: [-] StartService error (code 1056). as it means the service is already started: [WayBackSystem Error Codes (1000-1299) (Windows)


1056 (0x420)
An instance of the service is already running.
