I can't get Remote desktop connection to work

Hello I have been trying to get my friends computer but I can't get it, he e-mailed me the file I needed to get on to his computer, however when it asked for his password it says its wrong... Why? I typed his password from his computer.... that he uses to log on to the computer.. His computer is Windows Vista Home premium My computer is Windows 7 home premium... Its frustrating me, I live about 500 miles away.. from his comptuer's location..

Here is what I get..

When he sends you the Login Invite and then restarts the Remote desktop it changes the Details and password, He needs to leave it on and then do it,

Also, I never use this feature its slow and annoying. Goto and create a account and send him a deployment link. Once installed on his/her PC you can get in when ever you want belonging that its enabled on there PC.
