I have an Access application that pulls data out of an accounting system (Quickbooks), processes and transforms it then inserts it into a SQL Server database.
This app runs 24/7 on a Windows 10 virtual machine (VMWare) which is controlled by a remote desktop connection. The app is started by connecting in using RDP, logging on, starting the app then disconnecting the RDP session to leave it running 'headless'.

This has been working for over a year but has, in the last week or two, developed an issue. When you disconnect the RDP session the app freezes, and seamlessly resumes when you reconnect. I know this is happening as the app generates an event log which has gaps in it corresponding to the time the VM/RDP is disconnected.

Has there been a Windows update which has changed the behaviour of disconnected RDP sessions? There have not been any changes to the VM or the app other than usual Windows Updates.

Bit stumped, any help, ideas appreciated !

This seems to be related to the May-2019 Windows 10 updates.

A workaround is to use the XDDM instead of WDDM display driver model. - Using these keywords on Google should get more detailed instructions.
