Remote Desktop License Issue: Your Session Will Disconnect in 60 Minutes

I recently ran into an issue with Remote Desktop Licensing where all of a sudden all users were getting the following error message:

“Remote Desktop License Issue. You’ve been connected for the maximum amount of time allowed for users with Remote Desktop license issues, and your session will be disconnected in 2 minutes. You can connect again, but your session will be limited to 60 minutes until your administrator fixes the license issues”.

Here is also a screenshot:


The issues seemed to be related to licensing somehow having been changed per device instead of per user. I had to change the following registry key to fix it.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services] “LicensingMode”=dword:00000004   => 4 is per user

Hope this saves someone time.
