No. Windows 7 is not a server OS and does not allow multiple remote desktop connections.

What version of the OS are you trying this with? The only version on Windows 7 I can see that might support something like that is Enterprise, none of the rest would allow that type of setup...

NOTE: I must also mention that I've never used Enterprise, so that is merely speculation...

Ok, more information for you, a quote from Wikipedia (link):
Quote:
In Windows Server 2008, it has been significantly overhauled. While logging in, if the user logged on to the local system using a Windows Server Domain account, the credentials from the same sign-on can be used to authenticate the remote session. However, this requires Windows Server 2008 to be the terminal server OS, while the client OS is limited to Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Windows 7 is not a server OS, but it does allow multiple remote desktop connections and ever seperate user environments. The sticky thread up there shows you how to do it

You don't need to use Thin Client if what you want is Remote Application. Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate supports RemoteApp natively, no addons needed.

AKA, not official support and therefore should not be relied upon. I stand by what I said.
