KB3000850 breaks access to RDS on Windows 8.1

Just wanted to post a heads up for an issue I came across this week. If you use Windows 8.1 to connect to an RDS 2008 R2/2012/2012 R2 environment, you'll want to stay clear of KB3000850 as it breaks access to your RDS environment. We experienced the following behavior:

  1. When launching a RemoteApp, we receive an additional credentials prompt asking us to authenticate to our RD Connection Broker address, almost like the single sign-on certificate is not working properly.
  2. As the RemoteApp begins launching, it appears to hang. If you click the details drop-down, it will show nothing but a black screen. Approximately two minutes later, the RemoteApp will close.
Uninstalling KB3000850 resolved the issues I was having trying to launch RemoteApps. I also found a thread on the TechNet forums with others experiencing the same issue - https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/f3c6f7a7-120e-4b13-b441-4da9fc5d3a7e/a-published-app-on-remote-desktop-services-will-not-launch?forum=w8itprogeneral
