Development: Windows 10 UWP Wireless Label/Receipt printer demo

As I already wrote the small demo apps for wireless printing of Label and Receipts for Android and Windows Phone 8, I now wrote such demo now for Windows UWP. The applciation was tested on a Windows 10 Phone running Windows 10 Iot Enterprise Edition.

The code is based on the Windows Universal Sample app BTRFCommChat, but uses a different, single page layout.

rdesktopce builds done with LOW_RES ‘marker’

Mobile development: rdp_autologin updated to support clipboard redirection

The source code of rdp_autologin has been updated and now default.rdp will now include some more lines:

WorkingDir:s:C:\Program Files (x86)
AlternateShell:s:C:\Program Files (x86)\notepad.exe
EnableClipboardRedirection:i:1
RDPIdleTimeout:i:0

where only EnableClipboardRedirection is working.

Will update the code of rdp_autologin and it’s tools to enable you to control the clipboard setting by the registry. Currently it defaults to ENABLED.
