RDP Minimum config



I've tried to reduce the footprint but i couldn't. Can you help me? I
only want to start mstsc.exe (RDP) to connect to a domain controller
server.(I've added and extra registry data on target designer (HKLM
\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run) running a batch file

start /wait c:\windows\system32\mstsc.exe /v:asterix
goto loop

What components can I delete from the list below? I've tried to
some components like Indexing Service, but when i check dependencies
they appear again. What do you suggest? Should I eliminate components
without checking dependencies? Probably, but it's an tedious task.
Please help me.
I want to reduce the footprint to a minimum.

Dear amsps,

I suggest you to create a config with your PMQ first.

And you just need to include mstsc & some necessary components, then
dependency check & build image.

If you still want to reduce components from your original configuration,
please disable "Auto-resolve dependencies" in "Tools->Options->Dependency
And delete useless components to rebuild image again.
