Windows 2003 R2 and Remote desktop multiple user question

Dear Experts,

I look after a company that is running Windows 2003 R2. I use Remote Desktop which works very well. The only thing is, when i login to remote desktop, is it possible to view the desktop I left while using the server in the office. To put it simply, I would like the Administrator account just to have one desktop profile. The server runs FileMaker Pro, which you may or may not know, it must be closed down properly. When logging in remotly I can't close it to restart the server, as it does not display the application as open, in the Remote Desktop. It is like logging into a fresh copy of th Administrator profile.

I hope this made some sense. I asked this question some time ago, but the answer I accepted didn;t work. Should have tried it first! I was told to put  C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstsc.exe -console in the 'start in' field of mstsc.exe.

Lots of points as I am getting very frustrated with a very simple problem.

Regards,

Peter

REmotely,

Start --> Run -->   mstsc.exe /v:servername /console  <enter>


So, this does not produce your ability to "see" the desktop?
