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
