xrdp broken?

I can't seem to get into the pi from Windows Remote Desktop anymore. It just complains of "error connecting"

If you are running Raspbian Jressie with Pixel on your Raspberry Pi then it includes RealVNC.

RealVNC conflicts with software such as rdp, tightvnc and similar.

In my opinion RealVNC is better, but if you want to use rdp you will need to remove RealVNC.

If you are running recent version of Raspbian Jessie Pixel or have recently done an update, then RealVNC is now installed by default and won't work with xrdp.
IMO use RVNC as it is much better.
You will need to uninstall xrdp, enable VNC on the RPi and use a client viewer software from here: https://www.realvnc.com/download/viewer/

If you still want to run xrdp you will need to uninstall RealVNC
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
