A program that requires you to use a smart card stops responding in a remote desktop connection in Windows Server 2008, in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

…and make sure you’re at SP1 on the W2k8 R2 terminal server.

    Windows hotfixes are cumulative so if you have an LDR version of Winscard.dll nstalled (not a GDR version) that has a higher build number than a previous hotfix then that binary should contain all previous fixes to Winscard as well.

    Since KB2521923 has the latest version of Winscard.dll, will it also fix the problem specified in KB2424375?
