It almost sounds like its a resolution issue on the target machine that isn't allowing your prompt to show properly.
a: You can configure the RDP console for display options, click the options drop down box to proceed.


does this sound close to the issue?
Please do screenshot what happens when you right click on a program.

basically im on the remote machine on a standard user, they need help running a program that requires administrator privelidges. So when i go to run program as administrator it shows a black screen on my side and only at the local machine does it show the box to enter credentials which obviously is not suitable as they cannot have the administrator password

is the user sharing the desktop or just the program? if its just the program this is normal as you are blocked from seeing other programs than the program that is shared.

still sounds like a resolution issue to me, change client resolution and console display options and try.

Get the full computer name from the My computer/properties

Run>mstsc.exe /console

and log into their computer maybe with the Admin name pass. you might need to put in the Domain in the username example DN\<admin>

this will kick the current user out though, but you will have complete access to the machine.

Edit: I have not used this in Win7, but this is how I do it in XP
