How can I RDC to a standard account?

#1
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:

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.
