Windows 7: Login with RDP, without bumping current session.

Server 2008 ENT x64 and Server 2008 R2 ENT x64?????????

Quote:
I have only tried the RTM version and that worked with "install multi", so the " - " in the 7100 version might be a typo.
If you use the " - " and when login in still bumps the current session, just run the script again but this time without " - ".

I used search, but I must admit I did not read every post in the thread... (sorry, that is bad forum procedure but...) Anyhow, I have a Laptop running WINDOWS 7 ENT. x64 and the script worked wonderfully in multi mode for what I wanted it for. My question is very simple and if no one already has the answer I can always just try it, but do you believe this will work in WINDOWS 2008 R2 ENT x64 which should be the same code base as WIN7. Furthermore, I could really solve ALL of my RDP dis-likings if it were to work on WINDOWS 2008 ENT x64 (SP-2) as well. Then finally I could say goodbye to the very annoyance that this script was created to avoid! Anyone tested this on either of those OS's yet? If I were a betting man, I would say it will work for R2, but who knows as far as straight up Server 2008 ENT. x64... Anyone that could relay their experiences if they have any would be helpful; otherwise I will just test it on everything and report back. Many thanks and oh, BTW great job with the forum - in all respects; you have quite a userbase and I am very pleased for you all. Your implementation of vBulletin is astounding as well (I have always found vBulletin to be a major PITA when I have had to deal with it) so you folks are doing rather well here and I am glad to be part of this community. Thanks in advance. Regards, FILMGUY

The script was setting all the registry keys correctly, but it was not copying the dll files in the proper path. So just try to run the script with the options that you need, then stop the RDP service(s) and manually copy the files

32_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\system32\termsrv.dll
64_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\termsrv.dll

Start the RDP service(s) and in my case everything was fine.

Now I'm going to verify the argument of following post, because it seems to me that when I tested I could logon multiple cuncurrent users (I'm not sure, it was couple of weeks ago).

Hope this have helped
FYI:

32_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\system32\termsrv.dll
64_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\termsrv.dll

is backwards, it should be:

64_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\system32\termsrv.dll
32_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\termsrv.dll

64 bit drivers are in the "system32" folder and 32 bit drivers are in the "SysWOW64". SysWOW64 stands for System Windows on Windows 64. Translation system32 Windows 32 on Windows 64.

I hope that helps.

Dear FYI,

what you are writing has no experimental confirmation from what I did to have the tweak working properly. I manually copied:

32_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\system32\termsrv.dll
64_termsrv.dll -> %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\termsrv.dll

and everything worked (and works) fine.
I cannot explain this.

Dear FILMGUY,

if I had to bet, I'd also bet that the trick works on WinSRV 2008s.
Would be interesting to have another confirmation of where 32_termsrv.dll and 64_termsrv.dll should go...

Let us know if you try it out, it's very interesting

We actually run a terminal services server. I can not only log in to a user machine but we can share the desktop. I can watch what they are doing and/or I can take control and they can watch what I am doing, as well as I can log in with out bumping them, but we have 8000+ machines.

This is a great find for home and small network. Nice work.

this is not a great find, this opens an old vulnerability that would cripple any home or business infrastructure, if exploited. question: why isn't this the standard, if it's so great?

Please help me a little. When I type "cd\Win7RDP" in the cmd, it says path specified not found.

I just realized I'm supposed to type it without the quotes.
--------------------------------
I'm confused with how the parallelism work. I can log into one user on from two different computer. The scenario is like this.

At the same time:
Local user - logs into User Account "Alex" - plays with the computer
Remote user - logs into User Account "Alex" - plays with the computer

In this case, the Local user can't see what's going on. So the remote user starts downloading a say "Winamp.msi" in Internet Download Manager. But the local user doesn't see the file as downloading when he opens Internet Download Manager.

My question is, when Remote User ends the remote session, does the downloading of Winamp.msi still continues, as it would if I never applied this patch. If so, how does the Local User access or reveal this background/hidden running on the computer?

There are many other vulnerabilities that are more critical than this one, which requires anyway login/passwd combination. Furthermore, an user so skilled to implement this trick is normally not leaving default Administrator/blank login combination. As I said in my previous post, this feature was standard until WinXP RC3, but then, at the very last moment MS changed the default to the actual standard.

Answer to your question is quite simple: Terminal Server OS, which has this as standard, costs much more than normal OS

I was about to update the Vista Home Premium in the office to Win 7 Pro in order to have RDP active (unhappy with the VNC solution). Hesitated because it would mean reintalling programs, etc.

On a whim I did a google search and found the dll fix that enables the RDP that Vista HP already has. Which the OP has listed.

I can vouch that both RDP on Vista HP and concurrent sessions on Vista and Win 7 Pro work great.

Someone can be sitting at the machine as user2 and I can log in, completely transparent, as a different user
