Some interesting fixes for this problem in the following link, second page looks promising. Not sure if this is the exact problem you were having but many are reporting success.

Someone on the Microsoft forums wrote that you can't save the signon if you use IP's.
not correct. I use the IP for a site that uses a SSL gateway.
Works for me..

I'm glad that link was useful and it seemed to be about the same problem with remote desktop not saving all previous credentials.

I'm not too sure about saving with IP's or not but apparently hitting the save button before connecting should save the credentials to an RDP file which works to fix the problem.

The last page of that link shows people saying it worked but I haven't taken the time to test this out myself.

Looking at Rich's screen shot in post# 12 I see that you can edit or delete credentials. I don't know RDC or use it, so

If I understand this issue:
The issue manifests when RDC was setup by one user and that user is no longer on the system.
You, the only user on the system now (admin), are trying to use RDC, but the old user creds are stuck in the RDC configuration.


I'm wondering if the solution is as simple as maually configuring creds if or simply delete the creds and try again with your user.

As I mentioned, I don't know RDC - but I do catch some things.

I'll bow out 'cause that's all I have to offer.

Good luck,

Bill

Try the following:

Save a profile named user1 that lets you connect to computer A using saved credentials for user1.

Save a profile named user2 that lets you connect to computer A using saved credentials for user2.

Save a profile named user3 that lets you connect to computer A using saved credentials for user3.

Save a profile named user4 that lets you connect to computer A using saved credentials for user4.


You should be able to double click on the saved profile (text file) named user1 and connect to computer A using the saved credentials for user1.

You should be able to double click on the saved profile (text file) named user2 and connect to computer A using the saved credentials for user2.

You should be able to double click on the saved profile (text file) named user3 and connect to computer A using the saved credentials for user3.

You should be able to double click on the saved profile (text file) named user4 and connect to computer A using the saved credentials for user4.

If you figure out how to do that, then you have solved the OP's problem.
