Available Updates for Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services) in Windows Server 2008 R2

Latest BaseCSP.DLL (as of April 2012):

You may wait for up to 30 seconds when you use a smart card to unlock a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2


Latest Winscard.dll (as of April 2012)

A program that requires you to use a smart card stops responding in a remote desktop connection in Windows Server 2008, in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

...and make sure you're at SP1 on the W2k8 R2 terminal server.
...also make sure you create and set FilterCSPCardCacheByTSSessionConnectTime to 1 – it is by default 0 or not present (this is read by the BaseCSP.DLL component).

See also for other aspects.



  • Since KB2521923 has the latest version of Winscard.dll, will it also fix the problem specified in KB2424375?

  • Windows hotfixes are cumulative so if you have an LDR version of Winscard.dll nstalled (not a GDR version) that has a higher build number than a previous hotfix then that binary should contain all previous fixes to Winscard as well.
