When I try to login to Azure VM using MSTSC got the below exception

The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop License Servers available to provide a license. Please contact the server administrator.

The screen shot would be as follows.

Resolution:

1. Use MSTSC /admin instead of MSTSC

2. Use the usual account details to login.

3. Go to Server Manager -> Remove Roles & Features.

4. Remove the “Remove Desktop Licensing” Role.

5. From the next time onwards, we can use MSTSC as usual.


Happy Coding,
