How to Enable Concurrent Sessions in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 RTM

rdp.png

Please Read

The script has been updated. The following now works properly:

  1. multi cmd line switch
  2. Home Premium
  3. Non-English Operating Systems, no need to change the script

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

If you’ve been following MissingRemote for a while, you know one of our most popular series of guides is Enabling Concurrent Remote Desktop sessions. Continuing that trend we have an updated process below working with the RTM (Official Release to Manufacturing) version of Windows7 Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium and Enterprise Editions, x86 & x64 build 7601, Service Pack Build 1130.

One of the most popular articles ever at MissingRemote.com has been our guide on how to enable Concurrent Sessions for Windows Vista. For those unaware of what it is, enabling Concurrent Sessions allows you to Remote Desktop into a system that someone else is on, under a different user account, and access the system without kicking the user off. I, for example, use the feature to have MCE running on my Television, and then I remote into my main user account to access all my files without interrupting my MCE session. Special thanks to Mikinho for compiling the package below and making this all possible.

3. Open Windows Explorer to the above folder

4. Right Click on “install.cmd” and select “Run as Administrator”

5. Wait for the script to run entirely. At the end, you should see something similar to the below…

 If you executed the command successfully, you should see this screen.

EXTRA ABILITIES

For 99.9% of folks, the above steps will be exactly what they are looking for. However, if you want to customize the abilities a bit, there are certain command strings you can run in addition. To do so,you will need to open a Command Prompt with Administrator Privileges(Start > Run > CMD > Right Click “Run As Administrator”). The other available options are: 

-?  Show this help
help  Save as -?
multi  Enable multiple sessions per user
blank  Enable remote log on for user accounts that are not password protected

For example, if you wanted to Enable multiple sessions per user, you would follow these steps:

1. Launch a Command Prompt with Administrator priveleges (Start > CMD > Right Click > Run as Administrator)

2. At the C:\Windows\System32 prompt type “cd\Win7RDP”

3. You should now be at the prompt C:\Win7RDP>

4. At the prompt, type: install multi

        It isn’t needed on 2008 R2.  Window Server products already allow 2 concurrent RDP sessions + 1 console.  This will not allow you to have more than that

      Well, hence why we have a different/updated guide every time there’s a new service pack build, which does in fact change the files. Not sure what a patch would do though, since the patch info would still need to be changed with the new files, no?

        there are also hotfixes for the termsrv.dll like this:

        http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980385

        and this would override the patched file so a patcher would be better.

          I don’t understand what parts confusing. termsvr.dll is a binary file. If MS makes compiles a new version and sends it out, the specific bytes that need to be changed will differ. If you have a patcher and attempt to use it on a newer termsvr.dll, it will not work, because it will be changing the wrong parts of the file. Generally patchers are used when we have a known file (or set of known files) with a specific patch (or set of specific patches) and shipping a pre-patched binary is not feasible (copyright, original is very large, etc). Binary patchers aren’t generally used to provide forward compatibility. … If a new binary is released upstream, the patcher has to be modified accordingly.

          If we had the source code to termsvr.dll, things might be a bit different, as applying the same source patch to multiple revisions of code is fairly trivial. Writing a tool that can correctly patch future versions of a binary is non-trivial and in the best case scenerio, unreliable.

  • I just tested this on win7

    I just tested this on win7 ultimate sp1 x64 bit and it does not work…after patch is applied, the rdp still asks to log the other user out before it can log me in. the original win7rdp rtm patch worked like a charm before sp1 rtm was applied.

    • Check if

      Check if %SystemRoot%systemtermsrv.dll.bak exists.  If so, rename it and then run the script again.

      If that works let me know and I’ll change the script to detect that properly.  I didn’t update that part and I think it had (legacy) checks for termsrv.dll.bak and skipped the patch if it existed to prevent deleting a valid backup.

        Can you test w/ a different user account?  I just want to see if the issue is with concurrent users or multiple logon.

        • Sure, I tested and the issue

          Sure, I tested and the issue is with multiple sessions per user. I set up a virtual machine (7 x64 Ultimate, just like my real machine) and these are the results:

          1. SP1 but no patch applied: trying to log on with a second user results in a prompt to log off the currently logged on user (as expected).
          2. SP1, patch applied: trying to log on with a second user results in 2 concurrent sessions, one per user (as expected).
          3. SP1, patch applied: trying to log on with the user currently logged on takes over the existing session (unexpected).

          Hope this helps.

      FYI, anybody who actually downloaded SP1 before Feb 8th did NOT get the real RTM build. An RTM escrow leaked, with the same 7601 build number, but it was NOT the actual RTM.

    • Michael Welter, now that SP1

      Michael Welter, now that SP1 is at windows update, have you looked at updating cocoa’s remote aero glass and remote audio patches for Home Premium?  It was only a few bytes change to patched termserv.dll previously…

  • I wonder if the issues with

    I wonder if the issues with getting this working on home premium have something to do with RemoteFX, which is a new feature added in SP1.

  • That is correct, I need to

    That is correct, I need to push an update but I was waiting for the official release to ensure it is compatible.  I’m installing now and will verify by the end of the day.

  • I must be doing something

    I must be doing something wrong.  I just installed SP1 RTM on Ult x64 and ran this with “install multi”.  It says setting fSingleSessionPerUser to 0, and I verified the setting was 0 in the registry, and that everything was successful, however, if I try to login as the same user, it locks out the local screen.  I deleted the .bak file and tried a few times but no dice.  Logging in as different user works great, but same user is a no-go.  Correct me if I’m wrong but the multi param (fSingleSessionPerUser=0) is supposed to allow me to RDP as the same user and not have the screen lock out on the local box, right?   

  • I don’t know, but i had to

    I don’t know, but i had to change the following byte in my termsrv.dll file (this is from the note file in Concurrent_RDP_Win7_RTM_patcher_v1.1)

    Without this changes, I cannot log.  (Windows French Home Premium32 bits AND 64 bits)

    My comment is useless, I downloaded the beta version of the patch… “oops”

  • Can’t get this patch to work

    Can’t get this patch to work with multiple users on Windows 7 SP1 RTM, always get prompted to log the other user off.   I can see the modified termsrv.dll in System32 directory.  Michael mentioned in a previous post he needed to push a patch – any update on that?

    • I got it working – what a

      I got it working – what a struggle.

      I suspect this has something to do with the way Windows 7 x64 uses hard links in the System32 directory to point to Syswow64.  Anyway, when I ran install.cmd, it would report successful and when I looked at the file in Windows explorersystem32 directory, it would show the new version as being there.  It wasn’t until I went to a command prompt and did a dir termsrv.dll that I saw the file was still the old one.  I had to manually execute the takeown and calcs commands on termsrv.dll from the command prompt, then it worked.

       

      I had been running install.cmd by right-clicking and running it as administrator from within windows explorer – running it from an administrator-access command prompt may have worked. 

       

      Glad to have it working!!

          The steps that worked for me were 

          1.  Open a command prompt with Administrator rights (right click, Run as Administrator)

          2.  Manually execute takeown and cacls commands as within install.cmd on termsrv.dll in the WindowsSystem32 directory 

          3. Run install.cmd from within the command prompt

           

          • Yup, those are the steps I

            Yup, those are the steps I followed…lines 96 (takeown) and 98 (ICACLS). I see a new patch is in the works so hopefully that will work.

  • Hi Guys,
    Hope someone can

    Hi Guys,

    Hope someone can help. I have here W7 Home Premium 64b (Retail version with official license code) and I performed the SP1 from the DVD I got from Microsoft Technet > the final version which everyone’s gonna get.

    I ran the patch (downloaded zip-file here today, hope it was the latest) , but I cannot establish a RDP connection. Before SP1 it worked with the earlier workaround. Attached the screendump after patching. Can someone advise me? Many thnks!

    Thnks Michael for working on it!

  • Is the same user multiple

    Is the same user multiple session thing fixed now?

  • I deleted the dll.bak file

    I deleted the dll.bak file and ran the batch file with no problems on 2 machines running the public release of SP1 installed over windows home premium.

    However when I tried to connect to both machines I get the username and password window, press OK, and then the RDP client window closes out.

  • Here we go again.
    I tried to

    Here we go again.

    I tried to apply the script you directed me to on my win7 HP ( 32bit), swedish edition, before having installed SP1. The script did not work – taking ownership for some reason failed. So I took ownership manually and renamed the present termsrv.dll to …bak, copied the new .dll to the directory and checked that the registry changes were there as described in the script. I also changed the default port used (3389) to 3391 by changing in the registry ( winstation_ports_ etc).I had to add new rules in the firewall for incoming on port 3391 too.

    Then everything worked just fine.

    Now I have installed the SP1 (oem version) which took a long time but installed without problem.

    So I did again as the time before –  checked the script what should be done and again took ownership of the termsrv.dll , renamed it to something .bak and copied the “new” .dll to the system 32 directory. I also copied the rdpclip.exe to the same directory.

    Then I checked the registry settings again, compared with the script, and tried to connect.

    The process started but when the window message was telling it was securing the connection it stopped and the window disappeared.

    I disabled the firewall to exclude something wrong there but the same result.( Then the window disappeared actually at ” configuring the connection…”) 

    Can you give me a summary of which files that should have been installed in system 32 directory and what registry changes shall have been made in the registry to get things working.(If I have got something wrong)

    Maybe the fact that this is a non-english version creates the problem ??

    Best regards and thank you for all your efforts !

    • I had this working well

      I had this working well before SP1 from W7 Home to W7 Home. Now with SP1 on both machines and after this patch (and renaming the “bak” dll) it starts to make the connection, gets to “configuring remote connection” then quits, no errors, no connection.

  • Running Windows 7 Home

    Running Windows 7 Home Premium x86. Installed the SP1 update and it broke my RDP. Followed the guide and still doesn’t work. I’m guessing this guide works for Windows 7 Pro but not Home Premium…since Home Premium doesn’t have termsrvr installed and the Pro version does.

  • It works, but I had to

    It works, but I had to manually shutdown the rdp service before running the script. 

    • I’ve tried this on the german

      I’ve tried this on the german version of Windows 7 Ultimate, edited the script to properly shut down the “Remotedesktopdienste” service and to use the group “Administratoren” for granting ownership and the system was properly patched as seen below:

      31.01.2011  10:34           521.216 termsrv.dll
      31.01.2011  10:34           521.216 termsrv.dll.bak

      However, concurrent sessions do no longer work, eventhough it worked fine with your previous script on non-SP1 systems. Console session will always be logged off when someone logs in via RDP.

      So I can confirm, this patch is faulty. Good luck fixing this.

       

  • Looks like SP1 for Microsoft

    Looks like SP1 for Microsoft Win 7 Home Premium contained a pretty serious “upgrade” for the Remote Desktop Service. The service listens on the port (after apparent success in applying above patch), but any attempt to connect results in the client exiting immediately.
    Had I known that RDP was not part of Home I would have bought Pro, but it’s a bit late now (and I am not allowed to run the Upgrade Anytime). F..k you MS. 🙁

    Oh well I can live with VNC for some time. But I sure hope somebody can hack the hell out of this RDP kill-switch.

    This patch is simply awesome… can’t thank you enough!!!  I can’t imagine not having this capability now that I have been hooked on it for years!

    I did have one very minor edit to get the install script to pass the EditionID check on one of my machines with Windows Ultimate N.

  • I can confirm the patch now

    I can confirm the patch now works with german version of Windows 7 Ultimate. However, there is still one bug in the script where globalization does not work.

    There is no group “Administrators” on german versions of Windows 7, that group is called “Administratoren”. While this is no show-stopper, I’d just like to inform that this little bug still exists.

    Great work anyway, thumbs up! The only thing missing that would make this patch perfect is to allow Aero Glass Remoting regardless of operating system used for establishing the connection.

    • I know but I thought it was

      I know but I thought it was an acceptable error 🙂

      What I did was first grant ownership to the current user and then Administators (for English locale).  The ICACLS command supports WellKnownSids but the Administrator group SID is unique, it is built from a RID; ICACLS does not support RIDS.  I could write an application that does it (I’ve got a few I’ve written already that does that) but I didn’t want to add an executable to the application.

    • Has anyone gotten aero glass

    I followed the instructions as well as the “install multi” command but it seems i now i have 2 seperate sessions. User b doesn’t get booted off now, but user a has a new session than the existing session on user b.

  • okay i think i found out but

    okay i think i found out but it keeps giving me bsod’s :(.

    From user a you go into cmd and type “shadow 1”, then on user b you will be asked if you authorize this request and you click “yes”. At this time i click yes and the computer stalls. Such a bummer, i really like the way remote desktop connection handles the resolution on the laptop because trying it on a vnc program only deals with the native resolution of the remote computer (which is 2560×1200) which makes scrolling around the remote screen a nightmare!

      [quote]From user a you go into cmd and type “shadow 1”, then on user b you will be asked if you authorize this request and you click “yes”. At this time i click yes and the computer stalls.[/quote]

      Are you sure it stalls?  Next time you try, hit either Alt-Tab or Alt-PageUp.  If Media Center, or any fullscreen exclusive DirectX application, is running in the foreground then you will see a black screen.

      Note: It is also “easier” to use shadow console rather than the session id.  It used to be that console was always sessions 0 but that is no longer true.

      What is your end goal in using it this way?  I may be able to suggest a better alternative.

      [quote]asked if you authorize this request and you click “yes”. [/quote]

      If you don’t want to be prompt you can disable that via a registry setting (you can also set it via a Group Policy)

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindows NTTerminal Services]

      “Shadow”=dword:00000002

      You can use the follow settings for “Shadow”:

      0: No remote control allowed

      1: Full Control with user’s permission

      2: Full Control without user’s permission

      3: View session with user’s permission

      4: View session without user’s permission

      • Re: Post #122
        Hey Michael,

        Re: Post #122

        Hey Michael, when i say it stalls, it gives me a BSOD on the patched rdp pc (win7 x64 ultimate) as soon as i click yes. I tried it a few times and each bsod gives me a slightly different message or error code. I’m not running any media centre’s or anything special, it’s a very basic setup. My aim is to get vnc-like abilities to control the pc with my laptop so that the remote session from my laptop is mirroring or cloning my mouse gestures to the pc monitor. I like this over vnc programs since the scaling works really well on rdc. EG. my laptop has max resolution of 1600×900 whereas my pc monitor’s (native) resolution is 2560×1600.

        I also would like to know if it’s possible to do the reverse and show whatever i’m doing on my laptop and have my laptop’s screen come up on my pc’s monitor?

  • Is there a way to see if

    Is there a way to see if someone else is logged in on the PC?

    Worked for me, Win 7 Pro SP1 🙂

     

    • Yes but you’ll need to allow

      Yes but you’ll need to allow RPC access first.  So on the system you want to control, the HOSTPC, set the below registry key.

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlTerminal Server]

      “AllowRemoteRPC”=dword:00000001

      As the name suggests, this allows Terminal Services (aka Remote Desktop Services) to listen and accept RPC commands.

      After doing that you you can use qwinsta.exe from a command prompt to see who is connected. i.e.

      qwinsta /SERVER:HOSTPC

      Let me know if that helps.

  • Was working for me

    Was working for me using UniversalTermsrvPatch_20090425 but SP1 nuked that.

    Have installed this using install multi in an elevated prompt and it’s not working. If I RDC in as my main user I take over the console session. If I RDC in as a new user I’m told I need to log the existing user off.

    Win 7 Ultimate x64 UK English.

    I sometimes wonder if Microsoft employees use the products they write. It would surely take only one member of the MCE team using this product at home to know that they need to allow 2 logins on MCE machines, one for watching TV and one for doing remote maintenance!

    So far it works as it did before SP1!

    Thnks again!

     

    • yepp, v2 works now for me too

      yepp, v2 works now for me too (w7 hp sp1 ger. x86 )

      many thanx, excellent work.

  • hmm,
    re-installed my HTPC

    hmm,

    re-installed my HTPC because it didn’t work after SP1.

    so after re-install and all updates except SP1 it still doesn’t work.

    i woder if some other of the latest patches broke something

    • What exactly isn’t work and

      What exactly isn’t work and I’ll go from there troubleshooting.

      Are you using two different accounts or a single w/ multi switch?

  • I have not yet installed this

    I have not yet installed this on a Home Premium version and have seen various posts relating to remote aero glass, remote audio, etc but it is not clear to me what is the current capability.

    After installing this patch, does Home Premium have the full RDP capabilities of Ultimate?  If no, what are the differences/limitations?

    • No, I don’t have Aero Glass

      No, I don’t have Aero Glass or Remote Audio for Home Premium enabled.

      I have Aero Glass disabled on my HTPCs so I didn’t look into.

      For Remote Audio, I know the bits to adjust but haven’t yet.

  • well don’t know what

    well don’t know what happend,
    but i got it working on Win7-Ult.-RTM X64-DUTCH(No SP1),

    i’m using 2 accounts.
    so that my wife and daughter can watch stuff,
    while i’m doing some background task like copying stuff or something.
    and sometimes i need to remote control on the main account.

    next thing i’m going to try.

    make a diskimage of my OS and put SP1 on it.
    and see if the patch works.

    oh btw i also needed to apply the following,
    because when doing a remote control it asked the main account if it should allow it,
    and i don’t have a keyboard on my HTPC.

    1. Type ‘gpedit.msc’ into the Start Search bar.
    2. Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Connections.
    3. Double click on “Set rules for remote control of terminal services user sessions”, set to Enabled.
    4. On the section below under Options, choose “Full control without users permissions”.
    5. Reboot (or run gpupdate /force at a Command Prompt.
    6. Now log into the HTPC with your separate account as before.
    7. When logged in, open a command prompt with admin priviledges and type “shadow console”.
    8. After a few seconds you should be connected to the same session as the main user.

     

     

  • Worked on 4) Win7 Ult x64 SP1

    Worked on 4) Win7 Ult x64 SP1 PCs for me – THANKS

    Also, to add something I use but haven’t seen mentioned, you can run taskmanager as admin (otherwise it fails sometimes) and then go to users tab and right click on the other user and select remote control and both of you can look at and control the same screen at the same time.

    I do this with my parents for tech support and do it on my kids to see what they are up to in real time 🙂

  • Responding to # 119. Shared

    Responding to # 119. Shared clipboard started to work  after rebooting again.

    The rdpclip.exe is there and the same version as you mention.

    But still the  local drives from the client PC will not show at the remote even though ticked in the box in the client RDP window   ( They are visible if I connect to other XP machines using the same client).I have tried with other XP machines connecting to the win 7 machine with the same result –  connects, clipboard working, but local drives not visible. Is there some settings in win 7 to make them visible ?

    And again, thank You for all your work – it is really appreciated.

  • When i say it stalls, it

    When i say it stalls, it gives me a bsod on the patched rdp pc (win7 x64 ultimate) as soon as i click yes. I tried it a few times and each bsod gives me a slightly different message. Last message was “BAD_POOL_HEADER”. I’m not running any media centre’s or anything special, it’s a very basic setup. My aim is to get vnc-like abilities to control the pc with my laptop so that the remote session from my laptop is mirroring or cloning my mouse gestures to the pc monitor. I like this over vnc programs since the scaling works really well on rdc. EG. my laptop has max resolution of 1600×900 whereas my pc monitor’s (native) resolution is 2560×1600.

    I also would like to know if it’s possible to do the reverse and show whatever i’m doing on my laptop and have my laptop’s screen come up on my pc’s monitor?

    All 64 bit ….DL’d SP1 installed, DL’d the patch installed on HTPC waited, installed multi and blank … for kicks Dl’d and installed SP1 on my laptop…

    When I log in from laptop everytime, it kicks the HTPC and I have to log back in, no concurrent… worked before SP1 …

    now Im not the most learned .. so am I doing something wrong?

    What I want to do is concurrent sessions, shadow? this is how I’d like to have it work. Same session, not a different sign on.

    Any thoughts

  • Hi Michael, 
    Do you know any

    Hi Michael, 

    Do you know any reason this should not work on Server 2008 r2 sp1 enterprise?

    I’ve checked rdpclip.exe and termsrv.dll and they are the same ones as in windows 7 sp1. I’ve looked briefly on the script and the only modification should be to add the value of “ServerEnterprise” to the EditionID string supported list.

  • My apologies for the newbie

    My apologies for the newbie question, but I have run the script successfully –I think –I just don’t know what to do next.  I have no previous RDP experience, but my wife uses it for work.

    Win7 Home Premium 64bit w/SP1

    I am using the family computer as an HTPC.  I was hoping this would solve the problems we encounter when one is watching the TV and another wants to use the computer.  Am I in the right place?

    If not should I undo the script? Is that possible?

    • Once you’ve run the script

      Once you’ve run the script you should be able to go to a different computer on your network, run Remote Desktop Connection from Accessories in your start menu, give it the address of the computer you ran the script on and log in to it without disrupting the current console session on that computer.

      Is that the functionality you were looking for?  Your post makes it sound like you only have one computer.  If that’s true then this won’t help you, unless maybe you’re using RDP from a smart phone or some other device on your network.

  • Just an update for me, IT

    Just an update for me, IT WORKS ! thanks, thanks a lot. SP1 initially broke it and my first attempt with version 1 didn’t work but this version worked great on SP1 32 bit British.

    Thanks a ton for this.

  • Anybody else having problems

    Anybody else having problems with that drives from local computer not show up in “my computer” in the host – even when configured to do that in the client?

    Host is Win 7 HP, SP1, swedish , patched for RDP . Client is XP Home and/or Pro. When doing remote the other way, win7 client to XP as host , local drives show up .

    Any ideas?

    Very nice to have RDP function back. Can live without the drives available – but it´s always a challenge to get it working.

     

  • @jrandeck — You are correct

    @jrandeck — You are correct sir!  We do only have one computer.  I misunderstood the purpose of this completely.  I was thinking it would allow me to have 2 concurrent windows sessions on the same computer allowing one person to be on the computer and the other to be in the living room using Windows Media Center without interruption.  I guess there is no solution for that except to get a dedicated HTPC, eh?

    Should I “undo” the script?  …is that possible?

    Thanks for your help!

      How are you using Media Center in the living room?  If you’re using an extender like an XBox 360 you should be able to continue to do that while someone else is using the computer, assuming there’s available memory and CPU cycles etc. (Disclaimer: I’ve never used a Media Center extender, but that should work in theory.)

      As undoing the script, I wouldn’t bother with it.  It shouldn’t affect anything you’re doing.   I think the way to undo it would be to put the original DLL back, but I don’t know if the script keeps a copy, I’ve never looked.

    • The concurrent sessions

      The concurrent sessions “hack” actually does let you use multiple sessions on the same computer.  It still doesn’t let you do what you want but I find it very useful for testing various users and permissions.

      The “trick” is to either 1- create an alternate hostname via LMHOST, or 2- use a 127.0.0.x address other than 127.0.0.1.  So you can use 127.0.0.2 and have a concurrent session on the same machine.

      What it sounds like you want to do is use my CPANEL, Multimon or Maximizer to use Media Center in an emulated window full screen so you can have Media Center on a secondary monitor and use the mousekeyboard on the primary screen.

      • Sounds like exactly what I

  • Thanks for your hard work

    Thanks for your hard work Michael!  This really makes adiministering the HTPC easier.

    When I ran this yesterday right after upgrading my HTPC to SP1, it stalled near the end when checking to see if the service was listening.  I got the first message showing it was listening at 0.0.0.0:3389, but then it just sat there and seemed to hang.  I let it sit for several minutes, then I verified that I could connect to it from another computer,  so I closed the window.

    I’m assuming there was nothing important left at that point besides verifying that the service was working.  Is that correct, or is there a reason to try this again and make sure it finishes?

    FWIW, I had the older version working prior to installing SP1.  This was on Win 7 Home Premium, 32 bit.

    I’m running Windows 7 64bit Enterprise (english) now with SP1.

    I was previously running the patch for RTM successfully but am having troubles with this one. I’m only intererested in running concurrent users, not multiple. But when logging in with a second user I still get “Another user is currently logged on…”.

    The patch seems to apply successfully. Termsrv.dll in WindowsSystem32termsrv.dll is binary the same as the patched one. No warnings what so ever. Computer restarted several times.

    I was getting really fed up with VNC.

  • BTW Michael, you could

    BTW Michael, you could consider adding a check in the script to look up the configured RDP port number in registry. Then the listener check would also work in case you have edited the port. (Only nice to have feature, not really necessary of course).

    I had really big problems getting this to work, and it made no sense until I found that when I was using Open DNS rather than my IP prescibed DNS servers I couldn’t us RDP. So it may be worth if you are having problems checking out:

     

    It’s an issue of DNS taking/having priority over NetBIOS.

    Look here: http://forums.opendns.com/search.php?PostBackAction=Search&Keywords=netbios&Type=Comments&btnSubmit=Search

    Please let us know what measure could help you, if any.

    Edit: Forgot to explain why OpenDNS is different here in comparison to other DNS services:
    OpenDNS never returns NXDOMAIN, but comes back with guide.opendns.com, whereas other DNS services return NXDOMAIN, which causes NetBIOS to become active. This means, when using OpenDNS, you normally never come to the point, where NetBIOS becomes active. However, there are many ways to work it out, as you can see in the related threads. I also do not have a problem with this area in my Windows environment. “

  • I unzipped both SP0 and SP1

    I unzipped both SP0 and SP1 Win 7 Con to two folders within a main folder, labeled WIN7SP0CU and WIN7SP1CU. In my main folder, I have an installer .bat file. I pulled code from the install.cmd to find the current build (7600 and I think 7670? havent checked on SP1 machine), and Id like to simply switch between install.cmd files in either folder depending on the build. Q? How do I extract just the build number from:

    CurrentBuild REG_SZ 7600

    and do and if statement to switch

    SET SOURCEFOLDER=%~dp0WIN7SP0CU

    SET SOURCEFOLDER=%~dp0WIN7SP1CU

  • So im running windows 7 home

    So im running windows 7 home premium which does not have remote desktop by default, is there a way i can use the concurrent users feature for another program like RealVNC? Also, when i do this hack, does it enable remote desktop for my machene becuase when i did it nothing seemed to happen and there were no apparent changes.

  • very so much ,i need it ^^

    very so much ,i need it ^^

  • Thank you so much for this

    Thank you so much for this patch!  Concurrent multi-user Windows is awesome.

    However, the reason I got into this stuff in the first place is that I want to be able to change my music from another room.  I can do this with VNC, but as other users have noted, RDP does scaling better.  And maybe someday I can get Aero working over RDP since I have a very fast 5 GHz WIFI network.

    Anyway, I created a second User called “Background” so I can log into that account without disturbing the primary one.  But if I log into Background and then do the whole “shadow console” command as administrator to gain control of the primary User, it works for a few seconds and BSoDs; i.e. kernel panic and reboot.

    What can I do?  I want screen sharing like in Remote Assistance without the authentication and from any RDP client.  Is that so much to ask?

    Or, what about a script to automatically log back into the account after the remote one disconnects?  (Not ideal, but better than nothing.)

    • Well, I thought for a while

      Well, I thought for a while that the -console flag on the many RDP clients would help my situation.  Apparently not.  It seems that the console is the default option on non-server Windows OSes.

      Is that the case?  Should I try to simultaneously enable multiple sessions per user and use the console trick?  Is shadowing possible in anyway with RDP like it is with VNC?  This is crazy!

      • There is no /console flag

        There is no /console flag anymore.  It was removed in XP SP3/Vista SP1/W2K8 and replaced with the /admin flag which still won’t do what you want.

        btw, The console flag was removed since its initial purpose, connecting to session0, is no longer needed.  In Vista/Windows Server 2008 or higher session 0 is a noninteractive session that is reserved for services.

        What you want to do is shadow the console session:

        1- Set the below registry key.  It isn’t needed but if you don’t then the console session will need to approve your shadow request which isn’t very easy to do on a dedicated HTPC

        Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindows NTTerminal Services]

        “Shadow”=dword:00000002

        2- RDP into the machine with either a different account (or if you use multi switch the same username will work, I just don’t recommend it).

        3- Shadow the console session via the below command (required administrative rights) or via Task Manager – Users tab

        shadow console

        batch file stats that it needs to be Windows 7, could this be the problem?

        :fixed:

        I added under versioncheck the following entry:

        IF /I NOT “%EDITIONID%” == “UltimateN” 

        just before IF /I NOT “%EDITIONID%” == “Ultimate” 

        Patch applied succesfull

        • I second this – this change
          I second this – this change also worked for me. Please consider adding “UltimateN” to the list of supported versions.

    • Same problem as everyone

      Same problem as everyone above regarding only build 7601 being supported even though I am on build 7601. Also the fix in the previous couple of posts did not seem to apply in my case as the product name, version, build etc were all correct.

      In the end I booted into safe mode and renamed current termsrv.dll and copied over the new one. (Note annoyance with having to reset security permissions on old file as it required a”TrustedInstaller” to rename the file.) All now works ok. Not sure about the rdpclip file, I didn’t bother with that and it still seems to work without any probs.

      Can anyone advise if that file is necessary?

      Thanks

      • rdpclip (aka RDP Clipboard)

        rdpclip (aka RDP Clipboard) is only needed if you want to be able to use the shared clipboard on Home Premium.

  • Unfortunately it didn’t work

    Unfortunately it didn’t work for me. Ran the script as administrator and it completed successfully but after reboot I still don’t see the option to allow remote desktop connection under Remote Settings, only remote assistance. I’m running Win7 Home Premium 32bit with official SP1.

    • it does not change the GUI,

      it does not change the GUI, so you still won’t see those choices. But RDP is enabled – try connecting to it from another machine. Worked fine for me. Win 7 x64 Home Premium.

    I have attempted a few time to run the patch but keep coming up short. The first time I get the cannot find 64 bit terminal and the second a success. Though when I attempt to connect I am forced to log off the other user.

  • Hey guys, I ran the script

    Hey guys, I ran the script after updating my build and it worked wonderfully.  I went ahead and enabled multi users.

    Is there a way that I can see, on the display, on the server what I doing when controlling remotely.

    Basically I am trying to control xmbc from my laptop but I want the display to be off the server I have remotely connected too. 

    Did I mess up in installing multi?

    Please help, seems like you guys have a lot of knowledge and I would really appreciate a point in the right direction. I am trying to avoid having a wireless keyboard sitting on my coffee table just to run media off my server on to my TV.

      Yes, login into another administrator user in your PC with remote desktop.

      go to cmd and write “qwinsta” (without ” “), it will show active sessions and IDs

       

      then write “shadow 0” (0 its session ID you want to control). That way you will control it and whoever is on it can see it.

       

      PD: It will ask whoever is on PC if he want to give you the control, you can disable this changing group policies and such… (i mean, you can disable warning and take control of any session without permission of the user, you’ll need it if no1 its on the PC)

      • using “shadow console” is a

        using “shadow console” is a little easier, you won’t have to worry about what the session is.

        the registry key to bypass the warningprompt is listed earlier in the thread.

  • one question, i’ve connected

    one question, i’ve connected to my home PC, i cant enable “only one remote session” because it will disable “singlesessionperuser”.

     

    But i have a problem, when i closed session sometimes, i reconnected and when i connect again i will have another session opened, and cant shadow old remote one (its inactive).

    Any idea how to do it? (i mean, get back to my original inactive session instead of openning a new one)

    And thanks, didnt know you could do it with “console”

     

    PD: Nevermind, solved it, i closed the new session and opened remote desktop again, and it re-joined my old session, altho sometimes this wont work (altho it would be fine to know how to manage it).

    • Neither qwinsta.exe or

      Neither qwinsta.exe or shadow.exe is availabe on Home Premium.  You have three choices:

      1- Use the Task Manager to Remote Control a session.  To do so launch Task Manager; Under the Processes tab hit “Show processes from all users” (this gives you administrative rights needed to shadow; Under the Users tab right click the user you want to shadow and hit Remote Control
      2- Search for the executables under %SystemRoot%winsxs and copy them to %SystemRoot%system32
      i.e.
      CD %SystemRoot%winsxs
      DIR /s shadow.exe
      3- Find the files on the internet (I don’t suggest it since #2 is easy enough)

        First let me say much thanks for this script. I am running x64 Home Premium.

         

        For choice 2:

        Shadow.exe is in the winsxs directory however it is in the command line tools subdirectory. Copy shadow.exe to the Windows/System32 directory and the shadow command line works!

  • Black_ice_Spain

    i only tried on win7

    i only tried on win7 professional, you can try downloading qwinsta manually from internet if you can find it (in case your error its because home edition doesnt come with it). <– With remote command prompt i mean open remote desktop and inside of it open “cmd.exe”, client OS shouldnt make a difference.

     

    Anyways you dont need it, as michael said above, “shadow console” also works (console its the identifier of current active session on physical location of the PC)

    Does not work for me (win7 enterprise sp1). For some strange reason, my termsrv.dll files are located in winSxS folder so copying to System32 does not have any effect. These are the paths:

    c:Windowswinsxsamd64_microsoft-windows-t..teconnectionmanager_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ea94336f6df51e09termsrv.dll

    The file in the second path is “untouchable” – I can’t delete it, rename it, take ownership of it (even if I stop terminal services).

     

    This is the result of the script (earlier I manually stopped terminal service). After the script concurrent multi-user logging does not work – when my friend tries to log in on his account I get prompt that my session will be disconnected in 30 seconds, or something like that.

    Thakaya I can answer your Q – to allow shutdown by remote (not recommended), create a registry file policy like this one.  This prohibits shutdown with NoClose – to allow shutdown then you might Only replace the last ‘1’ with ‘0’

      Within your remote desktop client app, under “local Resources” before you connect, there’s a dialog on using “Local devices and resources.” My guess is that you have it checkmarked, meaning that you will use your local printer i believe. I’ve never printed over remote desktop, but try that setting. Maybe others have actually done so.

      • Thanks, Mike, for your

        Thanks, Mike, for your reply.  Yeah, the box for remote printing is checked.  I even have the local, guest printer shared but that didn’t make a difference.  I’m suprised not to see the TS port available as one of the options on the Windows 7 host when trying to install a printer port manually, like I have in the past with Windows XP Pro.  I did see the option to set up Remote Desktop Easy Print (which I assume is the TS port equivelance), after trying to install a local port (on the host) and pointing to Microsoft printer privers, but that came back with an error.

        If anyone here would try to see if remote printing is even available with this hack and if so, what is the port’s name under the shared printer on the host side, I would really appreciate it!Laughing

  • Just wanted to say thanks …

    Just wanted to say thanks … previous versions on Win7 and Vista worked great, and so does this on SP1. It’s really nice that you include an idiot-proof script, not just the DLLs and instructions.

    My wife and I have to use (different) apps installed on our big desktop; since I’m home from work today we really needed this update so I can access it via laptop while she’s on the desktop, and thereby your hack helps us maintain marital harmony.

    I have tried running it and it looks to get 90% through and then stops when listening on 3389. I have left it for 20 mins or more and the _ cursor blinks but no more. Any Suggestions?

          Ok, thanks for the clarification. Now the bad news, for ME, it did NOT work. While it shows the printer like it should (showing “redirect 2”), it Errors out during the printing.

          I tested with my WHS2011 box (which does not have the concurrent patch) just to confirm printing over RDP was working for me, which it was.

          Hopefully someone else can test and prove me wrong. Sorry buddy, I know you’ve been waiting a bit for an answer :-/

    I have had Concurrent users running fine on Windows 7 64bit build 7601 pre SP1 for a few months but this last week there has been a problem.
    When trying to connect to remote Win 7 machine from a client it opens a RD screen and brings up a windows server 2003 standard edition login box and then does not let you login.

    Any ideas at all?

    • Do you mean Windows Server

      Do you mean Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1? You don’t need it for server products. SP1 or no SP1, you can have concurrent remote sessions to Windows Server 2008 R2.

      • yes it is, windows 2008 R2

        yes it is, windows 2008 R2 “foundation” to be exact, unfortunately looks like we are limited to a few RDP under this platform, an upgrade is not supported nor cost effective (we inherit 50 of this entry level systems ).

        the fix works fine without the SP1, so we are stock with this platform.

  • I am delighted to have found

    I am delighted to have found this forum, but I am having a great deal of difficulty following the event timeline.  I note that the forum started a couple of years ago, and the process of providing these neat capabilities has evolved a good bit since then, especially as Microsoft changes the build numbers and introduced SP1.  So I would find it very helpful if someone could summarize and provide the link for the various download packages available and describe what situations they might be used for.  In my particular situation, I have two W7 machines both running Home Premium, and neither has SP1 applied.  On one of them(32-bit) there have been NUMEROUS attempts to apply it, but it fails every time.  On the other one(64-bit) it is not selected by Microsoft updates as important, so I have not selected it myself.  So I am having problems determining which patch to apply, and whether I will have to make a second application of a patch if I do finally apply SP1 to either OS. 

            Also, I note that early in the development, Home Premium was not supported, but now it is.  So I guess I want the patch for non-SP1 Home Premium, if such a thing exists.   Thanks to anyone who can help clear this up for me, and I’m sure there are several others out there who would appreciate it too!

  • Hi,
    I installed the patch on

    Hi,

    I installed the patch on win7x86.  My host PC is a desktop at my Salon’s reception and I need to remotely access it from home so I can check up on the receptionist.

    Therefore, I need to run remote desktop concurrently on one session, correct?  I mistakenly believed I needed to “install multi”.  Therefore, when I now connect to the host, it runs on a separate session.

    Summing up, my question is, how do you uninstall multi?

  • Hi Mike… I just bought Win

    Hi Mike… I just bought Win 7 Home Premium and installed over my Vista Ultimate PC.  Didn’t realise that Home Premium came without RDC server support as this difference is not mentioned in the comparison tables.  After installing Win 7 I applied all the recommended updates through Microsoft Update, including SP1.

    The system that I want to RDC into is Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. I tried a similar patch from a different site, and I got a very similar result. Has MS finally defeated all efforts to circumvent holding us hostage to upgrade to Professional? Or are there some other things that I can try?

  • I wanted to be able to run at

    I wanted to be able to run at least 2 different sessions, from the console.

    Under windows server 2003, I am able to start a remote session from the console, and thus be logged in to 2 differents sessions (ie: console and rdp).

    I installed the patch, it appears to work, If i log in from a remote computer.

    If I am at the console (on this local computer) and attempt to run Mstsc.exe I get an error telling me that there is already a console session.  Is there anyway that I can force a second remote session to run, without having to logon from a remote computer?

    A different scenario!? Can this be gotten to work? A single PC running windows home premium 64bit with a screen attached to the normal DVI output and wired mouse/keyboard attached. Then the HDMI output is fed to a second monitor (a television in sitting room). A wireless keyboard and mouse is used from the sitting room to interact with the PC. i.e. the concurrent user is NOT interacting via a remote machine but simply via these extended extra peripherals. Can such  a user be managed independently? i.e. so their inputs and outputs do not interfere with the main user using the original directly attached mouse/keyboard/monitor. You can see that the problem is no second machine to manage the interaction with! Could that user in the sitting room watch streamed media (or do anything else on the PC) whilst the other user seated back at the PC simultaneously carries on with other tasks? I think it may be a tricky one? Thanks.

      You are correct, that functionality is available which does essential map local drives to the remote system but w/ the “patch” it does not work in Home Premium.  It only works Pro and above.  It is possible to enable that but this patch doesn’t.

    Thank you so much for putting this out!  Worked as expected for me, installed flawlessly for me on:

    Windows 7 Professional SP1

    Am now able to have concurrent users logged in at the same time. 🙂

     

    Note: the “checking if Service is listening on port 3389” at the end of the install took several minutes to complete; be patient.

      From the first paragraph in the article:

      working with the RTM (Official Release to Manufacturing) version of Windows7 Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium and Enterprise Editions, x86 & x64 build 7601, Service Pack Build 1130

      Home Basic does not appear to be supported. Home Basic doesn’t normally support RDP host anyway (client only, you can’t connect to Home Basic remotely) so it’s not surprising that support for multiple simultaneous users can’t be added to something that normally supports 0 users.

  • I’ve just tried the latest

    I’ve just tried the latest patch (W7-SP1-RTM-RDP-v4) on a brand new notebook with Win7 home premium 64bit … and it works 🙂

    Any attempt to echo the installation on an samsung notebook with Win7 home premium SP1 32bit (fully updated by microsoft) failed: after right click on “install.cmd” and select “Run as Administrator” the cmd-box comes up in a flash and closes immediately.

    Any idea how to succeed? Thx in advance.


    p.s.: for my purpose single logon would be fully sufficing 🙂

  • I’m going nuts here. I’m

    I’m going nuts here. I’m trying to connect from my Mac to a Windows Home Premium machine. I’m using “Microsoft Remote Desktop connection for Mac”.

    I installed the patch on a new Windows Home Premium install. I can connect to the Administrator account. The Standard user account does not have a password. When I installed the patch I did a install multi blank.

    When I try to connect to my Standard user It says: “Make sure that you have permission to connect to the remote computer, and that you typed the correct credentials.”

    How do I give these permissions?

    • First. Thanks for what I hope

      First. Thanks for what I hope to be a great tool to manage one of my laptops without interrupting the user.

       

      Hi randika73, perhaps I can help.

      What I did was I extracted the zip contents.

      Copied the folder inside to the C: drive which means it now has a folder named “W7-SP1-RTM-RDP”.

      Browsed to that folder and right clicked install.cmd > Run as Administrator

      When it finished and I pressed a key it closed

      Then I did the (Start > CMD > Right Click > Run as Administrator)

      Then, CD (Enter)

      cd W7 (TAB) the TAB auto-completes the name. (Enter)

      install multi (Enter)

      ALL DONE

      Hope that is what you needed. I think you just had the folder name wrong.

      You can always do a dir (Enter) while in the root of C: to see the folders names.

       

       

  • Hello! I just read through 8

    Hello! I just read through 8 pages of the comments but didn’t find anything like my problem and I really need some help!

    I have Win7 Ultimate x 64 SP1 on a Dell Precision T7500 and I could really benefit from this patch, cause many users use this machine!!

    I installed the patch(v.4) and everything went fine as the output log in the image above shows! And I can rdp on the machine with another user logged in at the same time!

    But here are my problems:

    1) If I am physically on the machine and log off from my acount, windows crashes! Instead of getting me back on the users screen, the monitor turns off in the energy saving mode and I have no way of bringing up windows again except hard reset!

    2) When I try to rdp to the machine sometimes the client just dies at the point of securing connection, without error messages or anything! The window just disappears…

    I am very frustrated by these problems because they happen randomly and I cannot find a pattern or a corelation to something.

    One time though I happened to be connected with rdp to the machine while a physical user logged off. My session continued to work so the machine didnt actually crashed. It slowed down its response very much though so when I run task manager to see what happened I discovered about 11,000 processes of csrss.exe running, exhausting the pc resources and finally crashing it…

    I hope someone can help me with this. Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Guys!
    The script contains

    Hi Guys!

    The script contains the following command:

    ECHO Granting Administrators rights
    ICACLS %SystemRoot%System32termsrv.dll /Grant “%USERNAME%”:F
    ICACLS %SystemRoot%System32termsrv.dll /Grant Administrators:F

    In international versions of Windows Administrators are not Administrators! Here in Germany the Administrators are Administratoren. Because of this fact, the script must be changed to:

    ECHO Granting Administrators rights
    ICACLS %SystemRoot%System32termsrv.dll /Grant *S-1-5-32-544:F

    This works with all versions – languages independently.

    Hope that helps. Sorry for my broken englisch.

  • OK..I figured it out..multi

    OK..I figured it out..multi is a switch..I ran the scrpt w.o multi and it turned it off. DUH!!

    Thanks again for the process it works great.

    Maybe I can ask how to rdp into the console session while running with multiple connections, is that possible ??

     

     

  • My version is English so

    My version is English so Administrator is Administrator.. lol!

    Well I think something went terribly wrong after installing some latest updates…

    I unistalled every update performed in November but still I have the same problem: if I try to rdp into the machine and then logoff a physical user, windows crash. If I dont use rdp everything works great though…

    I will try a repair install of windows to see if that fixes the problem.

    Cheers!

  • I was so bummed to learn

    I was so bummed to learn tonight that my brand new workstation with Windows 7 Home Premium did not include support for hosting RDC.  I was even more bummed when I learned it would cost $139.95 USD to upgrade for this one feature…which I would never do since it’s not worth that much for this one feature.

    I was so pleased to find this and had this running in no time.  Thanks very much to you and the community!

    I did the multi command…how do I undo it?!?!? I am messing my system up bigtime by logging in as the same user twice and doing stuff.  Actually how do I totally undo this whole thing?  I went to seperate server and htpcs and never need to get into my server except from 1 RDP which is easy enough.

  • Is There Anyway You Can
    Is There Anyway You Can Supply A List Of The Patched Files? Eg Not Just The Most Current. I Don’t Update My Home PC, It Is Protected From The Net And I Have Had No Issues With It. If Its Not Broken Don’t Fix It.

    But I Would Really Like This Feature, But Installing GB Of Updates Its Not Feasible For This Feature, Thats Why I Was Hoping You Still Had The Old Patched Versions From Previously.

    Hi!

    just tried to apply to a freshly installed German Win7 SP1 home premium with installed updates. Runs without errors (except the known admin group name “Administrators” which needs to be changed to “Administratoren”).

    When I try to connect with an XP SP3 professional client, the behavior changed from “no connection…” before patching to a warning “Herausgeber kann nicht identifiziert werden … trotzdem verbinden?” (roughly equivalent to: “publisher of this RDP connection cannot be identified. Connect anyway?”). After clicking “connect”, a progress bar is displayed about 0.1 sec (so I cannot read anything), and then the RDP connect dialog is displayed again. No error message or so. On the host, nothing happens. I tried both, logged on and logged of at the host.

    Any idea?

    Hi Guys, I have been a longtime user of the different rdp fixes from Missing Remote.

    I have recently built a new Win 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 machine. I was originally able to loging concurrent sessions, then a nominal windows update (and restart) caused me to get the following message (after is seems to connect).

    Your Remote Desktop session has ended. The connection to the remote computer was lost, possibly due to network connectivity problems. Try connecting to the remote computer again. If the problem continues, contact your network administrator or technical support.

    • Did you manage to resolve

      Did you manage to resolve this I have got the same issue. I believe it worked when I originally installed the system but left it doing updates over night to find that this has now stopped working.

      I don’t really want to reload the system for the issue to come back once I update it. If there is only a chance this can happen I will be happy to reload and see what happens.

      I am currently running Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1

  • V3 of the patch This did work

    V3 of the patch This did work on our Win 7 ultimate SP1 systems until early December, 2011.  Something in windows updates broke that, and now the concurrent rdp sessions don’t work.  V4 of the patch on missingremote does apply cleanly, but still no concurrent rdp sessions.  It is a downer.

  • I can’t even download the V4

    I can’t even download the V4 version – is it down?

  • Total downer

    Total downer 🙁

     

    Really wish this would work. Also wish I was smart enough to help make it work, but alas…

     

    EDIT: Ha! It just started working lol. Though not what I expected.

    I thought my mouse movements would be visible on the other machine, seeing as how I am logged in as the same user. But instead, it’s acting like I am a new user. Yet I have the same user name.

     

    As you can see, all the processes are doubled up… http://gyazo.com/de0b4b125b0bf5956fe676de7c13a7f2

     

    And I couldn’t run firefox, as it said it was already running.

     

    Is this the expected behaviour?

     

    Thanks 🙂

  • I have changed my RDP

    I have changed my RDP listening port in the registry so I can access multiple machines through the same router. I applied the above patch and can’t connect now. Did this break something since I was not on default port? Any way to enable the concurrent users on a non standard 3389 port? Thanks.

  • Have a couple of a questions.

    Have a couple of a questions. The install seems very straight forward, but I’ve never got it working right (what I think is right)

    I just want to log into a current W7/WMC session, update/add programs/maintenane, on the same user account/session. Log off the RDP session, and not have to log on to the HTPC next time I use the HTPC from the main session.

    This is a dedicated HTPC. No other use/uses.

    I just have a paasword that requires a keyboard because of my ws 2011 setup.

    Is this how this program should work with the multi option?

    Can I install the program while in a RDP seesion, or do I have to install while on the main box?

    Am I “missing” something?

    Thanks

    Weird thing is that i had my 2 boys using the first admin account that was created during install and I created my own later and it is in the admin group etc. BUT the script wont run with the 2nd admin only the original (suspect its a UID thing)

    Logged in as them and it at least ran, had lingering issues but ran some commands individually out of script etc. On 1 I turned off RDP and then back on etc.

    Eventually all is good

    Also…seems like people underestimate the coolness of starting taskmanager as admin and using user tab and right clicking user and then hit remote control.

    This gives you local and remote access to the screen, keyboard, and mouse at the same time! Great for support.

     

    And thank you for this tid bit too! Now if I just had sound and aero 🙂 (never happy hunh?) got to go track down how to turn off the “basic” display prompt again.

    THANKS

    If you don’t want to be prompt you can disable that via a registry setting (you can also set it via a Group Policy)

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindows NTTerminal Services]

    “Shadow”=dword:00000002

    You can use the follow settings for “Shadow”:

    0: No remote control allowed

    1: Full Control with user’s permission

    2: Full Control without user’s permission

    3: View session with user’s permission

    4: View session without user’s permission

    Windows firewall says McAfee is managing the firewall rules and I see the inbound connections that do not match a rule are blocked. outbound connections that do not match a rule are allowed.

    I bypassed the versioncheck section in install as suggested and see:

  • Just chiming in this worked
    Just chiming in this worked perfectly on my Win 7 Pro installation. My Verizon FiOS router failed last night and I can’t replace it until tomorrow. I was looking for a way to share-out my PdaNet connection with my wife, and this was the absolute only thing I could get to work; and works like a charm.

    Thanx so much for this. There are so many smart people in the world, and the Internet is such a great enabler to be able to reach them.

  • First off, THANKS! I’m using

    First off, THANKS! I’m using your Win 7 SP1 RDP tool with my firesale TouchPad and the combination really opens up a world of possibilities.

    Looking for a bit of help; I’ve yet to sort out how to make “multi” work, I’ve followed the instructions up to: 3. You should now be at the prompt C:Win7RDP> but the system doesn’t find Win7RDP, I’ve tried searching the drive as well but still don’t find the executable. Suggestions would be appreciated.

    Guess I’m also going to have to get smart on setting up a domain so I can access from outside my home network … much to learn and a great deal of fun in learning how. I have to echo “m8o” comment, a lot of smart people out there and I have to thank you all for helping each other out.

  • Hi all, my full IT knowledge

    Hi all, my full IT knowledge is more or less outlined below so please be patient with me.

    Any help with this matter will be gratefully appreciated.  I currently have one staff member who connects to a dedicated pc in the office from home. The BT router uses port forwarding on the remote desktop port to a the PC creating the remote desktop session. This works fine.

    I now have two other staff members (and possibly more to follow) who need to connect, to use the same software. I understand that I could install 2 new pcs and allow them to connect to those, but would have to set up a VPN which the BT router won’t do, so with new router, new pcs, and networking infrastructure etc, this becomes expensive.

    If I get one powerful PC, and using the information/download from this site, will I be able to connect those multiple users to the port-forwarded remote desktop pc, (windows 7 ultimate 64 bit) and have each one work together at the same time?

    I’m loath to just “give it a go” as I’m not sure I could fix anything I broke if it doesn’t work.

    Again any help at all will be appreciated.

    Thanks for this patch that makes our lives easier. What are the idiots at M$ still thinking, that we live in the DOS days of single users ?? Morons.

    Anyway, this patch worked well for multiple users, but the -multi option still didn’t allow me to log into multiple sessions with the same user. 64bit, Build 7600 🙂 and 7 Professional.
    I did use the older patch.

    Is this written from scratch by you or is it a follow up of Sala’s Terminal Patch for XP ?

  • First off…I love this

    First off…I love this patch!!!

    Curious problem, though.  Sometimes I’m finding that one person connecting to the machine thru RDP is able to inadvertently/unknowingly change the default printer for some other userid.  Is that something anyone else has seen?  Is there a fix/workaround?  Thx

    Dear lord,

    murphyphx, I did this patch for XP Pro several years ago and it worked great.  Only issue?  Same as you.  Seems an “administrator” type user login can change the default printer and it applies to the whole shebang.  Whoops.  I just told my clients to knock it off. lol

    To whomever it may concern, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!  This patch made me look like I know something. 😉

  • This solution worked for me

    This solution worked for me however I am still trying to resolve one issue.  Is there a hack available to support multiple monitors when the remote machine is Windows 7 Professional?  Apparently Microsoft only enabled multiple monitors when the remote machine is Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate.   The client can of course be any version that has the multimon client installed.  My remote machine is a company machine and I don’t have the freedom to change the OS.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

      i also have this question.  in some cases i want to share the session, not start a new/concurrent one in parallel.

      is that what all the “shadow console” talk was?  i’m hoping there is a solution on the client side that lets me choose how i want to connect, rather than having to access the server side each time to change permissions.

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    If you’ve been following MissingRemote for a while, you know one of our most popular series of guides is Enabling Concurrent Remote Desktop sessions. Continuing that trend we have an updated process below working with the RTM (Official Release to Manufacturing) version of Windows7 Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium and Enterprise Editions, x86 & x64 build 7601, Service Pack Build 1130.

    One of the most popular articles ever at MissingRemote.com has been our guide on how to enable Concurrent Sessions for Windows Vista. For those unaware of what it is, enabling Concurrent Sessions allows you to Remote Desktop into a system that someone else is on, under a different user account, and access the system without kicking the user off. I, for example, use the feature to have MCE running on my Television, and then I remote into my main user account to access all my files without interrupting my MCE session. Special thanks to Mikinho for compiling the package below and making this all possible.

    Just ran it on Windows 7 Home Premium and it worked right out of the box. Thank you.

  • Could really use some

    Could really use some pointers on removing multi. It throws my Media Center to the login screen even though I have it set to log in without pw. Also, multi does not let you control the session already in progress.  My bad for installing too much too soon (and not creating a restore point). 

    Would repairing windoget remove the fix all together?

    • If you re-run the install

      If you re-run the install script but with no options it seems to remove the multi and blank options without needing to copy the binary.  So just rerun the install script.  Hope that helps.

    Just want to say the I was impressed by what was accomplished in the CMD file included in this fix. It is comforting to be able to exam code that you will run on your computer rather than the too common “download this .exe, turn of anti-virus software, runas administrator.” 

    Thank you for putting this together.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for

    Just wanted to say thanks for this. It works perfectly, but I am having one problem. Since I have done this I find that my PC shuts down on its own. Usually over night or when left for a while like when I am at work. Any one else run into this, or have any solutions?

  • Doesn’t work for me on Win7

    Doesn’t work for me on Win7 Home Premium x64. It actually gets to the blue welcome screen after I enter my credentials but then it just fails.

    Event viewer on the host machine (where I applied this patch) has some errors for rdpcorekmts.dll.  Any ideas?

      Enable the multi login option, then you should have no problems doing this.

  • Hi there,
    Thanks for sharing

    Hi there,

    Thanks for sharing this! It was the only patcher that worked for me..

    My question is about it that can audio transfer can be set up in any way in w7 home premium as there is no GUI in this windows to do that, maybe some script or other trick to do this.

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Pubem

     

     

  • I created a quick uninstall

    I created a quick uninstall patch for W7 Pro and up by modifying the install patch. It just copies the backup termsrv back to its original location. If anyone wants to change it to work with Home premium go ahead.

     

    (rename the .txt file to .cmd)

  • Using Win7 Home Premium. 

    Using Win7 Home Premium.  Applied patch and it reports success.  However, still cannot connect remotely.  Noticed that C:Win7RDP does not exist nor does it show up on any seach.  My HP Mediasmart server reports tha my remote website is not available from the internet. 

    Have tried forwarding port 80 (and other ports) per instructions on “portforward” but it does not seem to have any effect.  Have check to see if firewall is blocking remote access but it does seem to be.  


  • I have my Windows 7 Pro SP1

    I have my Windows 7 Pro SP1 listening to port 22 insteat of 3389. Is this a problem for running the script? Is the script altering it back to 3389 by itself? Or do I have to change it to 3389 again before running the script? Can I put it back to port 22 after running the script? This because my office has blocked port 3389.

    Just so everyone knows, the patched W7-SP1-RTM-RDP file also works in Windows Home Server 2011 (WHS 2011).  Just rename the 64_termsrv.dll in the zip file to termsrv.dll and follow the directions on the officemaven website (Mike Craven) and you will then have unlimited RDP connections – WHS2011 limits the connections to 2, so once you replace the dll, you don’t have that issue.  Cheers everyone and thanks for the file.

  • I’ve been using this hack for

    I’ve been using this hack for years, and have been very happy with it. But I ran across an interesting bug.

    I have a desktop running Win 7 64 Pro with two accounts which are sometimes used simultaneously, one at the console and one remotely on the LAN. This desktop has two printers connected by USB and those two printers are shared over the LAN.

    For a long time I would notice that the shared printers would appear to other computers on the LAN, for example a laptop, to be offline. Restarting the print spooler on the laptop would fix it temporarily. I thought it was a problem with the laptop until I noticed the same problem on another computer on the LAN. The clincher was that the problem immediately went away when the second user on the desktop logged out.

    Does this make any sense to anyone? I’d love to not have to buy a print server (and deal with a whole new set of problems). Is there a workaround that involves sharing the printers in a different way?

    Thanks!

  • On my system Windows 7 Home

    On my system Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit (Spanish) failed and this has been my solution:

     

    Sorry for machine translation!

     

    Copy the folder W7-SP1-RTM-RDP to c: and run the script install.cmd with administrator.

    Note: The instructions indicated as multiaccess allow the same user or account access without password. I have used the option: install multi

    I think it should be done before upgrading windows to not overwrite newer versions of files 🙂

    The service runs on port 3389, making a port scan can see if this up!

     After installation, you can delete the C:W7-SP1-RTM-RDP

     

    If from here fails:

    stop the service with this command:

    NET stop TermService /y

     Manually delete the files:

    c:windowssystem32rdpclip.exe

    c:windowssystem32termsrv.dll

     Manually copy the 32 or 64 bit according to your operating system (eg 64 bit):

    copy c:W7-SP1-RTM-RDP64_rdpclip.exe c:windowssystem32rdpclip.exe

    copy c:W7-SP1-RTM-RDP64_termsrv.dll c:windowssystem32termsrv.dll

     Now re-run with administrator install.cmd and try!

      

    Other options if the above fails:

    Uninstall and re-install the hotfix: KB2667402 which updates the rdpcorekmts.dll

     There may be other updates affecting the remote desktop, look for them and try to do the same.

    luck

     

    Good job Mike Garcen!

  • Is there any issues with

    Is there any issues with licencing (win 7 pro) and Microsoft updates by running this patch.

    i.e will the licence be regarded as non genuine by microsoft  if MS updates are installed?

  • It seems after recent patches

    It seems after recent patches this is not working.  Running Win 7 Ultimate, 7601 build, but everytime I connect from remote it immediately disconnects the session and ends the remote desktop services service.  I tried on a new user as Pieter suggests, but even new users do not work for me.

    Its the same problem from April where folks had issue after KBB2667402 installed, and varying versions of rdpcorekmts.dll were causing issues, but my system everything seems up to date..which may be the problem.  All i want is my wife to be able to use the system at the same time as me.  Why is that so hard for Microsoft?

    I’ve also tried replacing the termserv.dll file in safe mode as was successful in the SP1-beta post, but that did not work either.  Any ideas?

    SOLVED: Dummy was using an older version of the RDP download.  The correct one worked like a charm.

  • Just wondering…is there any

    Just wondering…is there any chacnce this patch could be tweaked to enable multiple monitor support without needing ultimate or enterprise editions? It’s the only thing I need when using a PC remotely and there’s no way I will fork out for ultimate/enterprise for that tiny feature alone. Quite vindictive to restrict it like that, IMHO.

    Anyway, some guy apparently took a quick look at it and said he found a call to the function that returns the edition but wasn’t skilled enough to progress beyond there…so I suspect for a talented hacker like yourself it should be easy enough to patch that to a constant as is done elsewhere? I and many others would be very grateful if you could do this for us 🙂

    Hi, thanks for the wonderful patch.  I have one issue.  When a user logs off my system, both middle buttons of my trackpad and trackpoint stop functioning until I restart the system.  (I use a Dell M4700 that has Alps pointing hardware).   The “gestures” feature of the trackpad also appears to shut off, but otherwise the two pointing devices continue to work.

    Would you have any idea what might be causing this?  Perhaps I need to tweak one of the registry entries?  Thanks!  This happens when I’m using the console and another user logs in.  I haven’t tested yet to see if it happens if I RDP in myself.

  • I’m Having a problem when

    I’m Having a problem when connecting with a saved password with remote desktop connection. I can connect without a problem as long as I type the password in manually and don’t save the password, but if I save the password, it will not connect and I get an error:

    The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login.

    In event viewer it shows this warning:

    RDPClient_SSL: An error was encountered when transitioning from TsSslStateHandshakeInProgress to TsSslStateDisconnecting in response to 8 (error code 0x80004005).

    I have had no luck searching for answers on google or technet. I am connecting only to other users in the same computer just to get them to log on and then I disconnect so the user account stays in the disconnected state. I need it to do that and there is no reason to get into why. I just have to do that. But the point is that I cannot test a connection to another computer to see if there is a difference.

    This is a fresh installation of windows 7 ultimate and it is connected to a workgroup, not a domain. Any help would be appreciated very much. I don’t know if it is the patch or not since I cannot connect to any user at all without the patch.

    Aslo it keeps saying that the identity of the computer cannot be verified and makes me press ok. That happens both when I save the password and when I type the password manually to connect and pops up after typing the password. I installed the certificate and that did not help.

    Thanks for the patch though!

  • Warning!! I just found out

    Warning!! I just found out that Windows Update KB2984976 disables the concurrent-sessions ability. Even re-tweaking the  files and registry with this tool, doesn’t do the trick. I managed to de-install the (automatic enrolled) update. That worked, luckily.

    So if you need the concurrent-session-trick stay working, don’t let Windows automaticly update your system…

      My system got patched automatically a few days ago and I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t working anymore. I’ll make sure to disable that patch in Windows Update. Thank you for this!

    • Thank you! I ran into

      Thank you! I ran into problems connecting to my HTPC using RDP after installing yesterday’s updates. Remote Desktop app would connect to the computer and that was it. It would try to launch the window but it would just disappear. I figured it was an update. 

      I uninstalled the update and that did not fix it. I then tried reapplying the update and that didn’t work. I’m now restoring my computer to yesterday before the updates were applied this morning. I definitely will be disabling KB2984976! Don’t know if I’ll install the other updates or not……Damn you MS!

    • Thanks for finding which

      Thanks for finding which patches caused this. Uninstall patches (in Windows 7, at least) by going to your Control Panel > Programs and Features > View installed updates (or Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program > View installed updates). I uninstalled both KB2984976 and KB2984972 (I sorted by “Installed On” date to find them easily), which reverted Remote Desktop to the good version.

      I’ll keep monitoring this page/thread to see if we can apply a new patch for Concurrent sessions.

  • Today windows update on my

    Today windows update on my windows 7 home premium PC started, updated my PC and restarted it.

    After that moment my PC is no more reachable in RDP.

    I tried to apply again the patch and also to disinstall the Microsoft updated files. But I can’t connect to it remotly.

    Microsoft Remote Desktop log says: 

    Protocol state changed to: ProtocolNegotiatingCredentials

    Protocol state changed to: ProtocolConnectingRDP

    Protocol state changed to: ProtocolInactive

    Protocol state changed to: ProtocolDisconnected

      Be sure to de-install both update’s (7.1 en 8.0 RDP), so KB2984976 And KB2984972

  • Today received a Windows

    Today received a Windows Update (W7 Prof build 7601) and now the whole feature of concurrent sessions is not available any more. What has MS done? But more important, is there a new workaround available?

    Please respond!!

This utility is fantastic and while I will uninstall the patches mentioned in this thread, I would be most grateful if you could apply a patch so that I did not have to selectively uninstall specific MS patches if at all possible.

  • I’ve installed all updates

    I’ve installed all updates from last week with the exception of the 4 that refer to updating RDP related and am still able to connect to RDP. My HTPC is running W7 Home Premium w/ SP1 installed.

    Here are the 4 updates I did not install which includes the 2 listed by Tinus. If uninstalling those 2 did not work try uninstalling the other 2 listed.

  • This version stopped working

    This version stopped working in the last 7 days, just after October 22, 2014.  It acts as though it was not installed. If someone else is logged into the Windows 7 RTM 1 machine (64 bit) then it asks to kick them off before I can log in.  It has always worked in the passed.  I have had this happen on 3 different computers in the last week. I have tried to re-install the termsrv.dll file but it still has the same issue.  I have done a binary file compare “fc /b  64_termsrv.dll termsrv.dll” to check both files and they are identical.  I am not sure what is wrong now. 🙁  

    Anyone else have an issue or know of any fix?…

    After uninstalling both KB2984976 (first) and then KB2984972 (second) and then rebooting it worked for me! YEAH!

  • I noticed that this guy has

    I noticed that this guy has posted the source on GitHub, helping to alleviate any worries about malware. You can download the binaries directly from the bin folder.

  • I ran into a little trouble

    I ran into a little trouble with this, because I think my saved version of termsrv.dll was already modified by another hack.   Attempted RDP connects would immediately crash/disconnect.    Running a “sfc /scannow” cleared it right up.   No more hacked DLL and RDP multi user is working fine.

    I just uninstalled:

    After rebooting and refreshing Windows Update, then just right-click the update and “Hide” it so it won’t keep popping up as an update..

  • Hi All!
    I had the behavior

    Hi All!

    I had the behavior that when I connected to RDP, the window appeared and almost immediately vanished.

    I deleted the KB fix and  waited almost an hour for windows to update itself.  Logged in to RDP from localhost, it worked fine.  Logged in from 192.168.0.xxx, it worked fine.  Tried to login from outside the local network and it rejected my credentials.  Double checked the firewall in windows and my router and both were open for port 3389. I checked the port with SheildsUp and it shows it is open to the net.

    Created a temporary user and got exactly the same results.

    What am I missing here?  Is there some kind of permission I need to change to allow remote logins?

    Thanks.

    Don Z.

  • Is there a comprehensive list

    Is there a comprehensive list of KBs that should not be installed / need to be uninstalled?

  • After using google translate

    After using google translate to get through the websites in russian, I got a copy of the W7-SP1-RTM-RDP-v6_18637.zip file, unpacked and installed it.  No luck I get “The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login”

    ok, so I see I need to uninstall KB3003743, then farther up the thread uninstall KB2984976 and KB2984972.  However I still get the same message.  There’s no provision in the gui (as mentioned in previous posts) to be able to “authorize” a user. I’m also unsure what the string of “Find” and “Repl” Hex codes mean in tstolik’s post.  What am I missing? I’ve set up an account on the machine I’m trying to connect to, with a password.  I’m using that login on the machine I’m trying to connect from.  Does this account need to be an admin account?

    Thanks Nathan
