Enable concurrent remote desktop connections in windows 7
We have 1 main pc in our house which holds all the data and applications. A number of older laptops and desktops then use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to the main pc. The problem of course is that windows xp, vista and 7 have only allowed 1 user to be connected to a pc at once. This sucks and in light of Linux competition should have been fixed by now. To get this sort of functionality in windows you need to use a server edition.
However, this can be patched to allow as many people as you like to connect to different user account on the same PC at the same time… hence Concurrent RDP.
To achieve this download this file which will work with Windows 7 Professional.

Right Click on the file “install.cmd” and select “Run as Administrator”
You will then see a screen explaining that all went well.
This method was created by the good folks on the Winmatrix forums so pop over there for more details should you need them. The missingremote.com have more details and some screen shots if you need more help.
Rumour has it that this can also work on windows home premium.. look here for details
