    Can anyone tell me how to Remote Desktop Connection connect to a Win 7 standard account?

    All attempts to Remote Desktop Connection connect to a Win 7 standard account fail with:

    gammaremotedesktop.

    Attempts to the same account change to administrator succeed. But I cannot afford the risk of this account being administrator.

    The machine running RCD is Win XP, on the same switch.

    Thanks.

    On the machine to are trying to remote into.
    Open advanced system setting and select the remote tab, click the select users button and add the account that you are using to log in with to the remote desktop users.
    Or use the user manager console
    lusrmgr.msc
    Select Groups
    Double click Remote Desktop Users group
    Click the add button
    click the advanced button
    Click the find now button
    Select the user from the list

    Excellent - thank fixed it. Thanks, Trouble.

    Is there a single operation now that will do the same for all current and future standard accounts?

    You're welcome.
    I guess... If you are sure that is what you want to do. Then you can nest groups inside of groups, so instead of adding individual users you could add the "Users" or perhaps better "Authenticated Users" group or groups to the "Remote Desktop Users" group.
