Getting Pervasive DataExchange to work when working thru RDP

When setting up a Pervasive DataExchange synchronization over remote desktop there is one importent step to take to get the permissions right. The step is to set the ‘Restricted Access On WTS client’ to false (0).

Here is a short description of how to set the WTS key correctly:
1. Click “Start” -> “Run”
2. Enter “Regedt32” and click “OK”
3. Find the following Registry key: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwarePervasive SoftwareUtilities InterfaceSettingsRestricted Access On WTS client”
4. Double click REG_DWORD for the key
5. In the Value Data field, change the value from 1 to 0 (zero)
6. Click “Ok”
7. The REG_DWORD value should read 0x00000000 (0)
8. Exit registry editor

If the key does not exist – create it

Tested with PSQL v9, PQSL v11, DataExchange v2.8 and v4 on XP, Vista and Win7
