Auto-login with Remote Desktop ActiveX control?

Hi, everyone!

I'm in dire need of assistance with automating a TS web connection on my intranet - basically, when the user clicks "Connect", I'd like to have the username and password automatically sent so that the user doesn't have to type anything, it just logs them in. On MSDN, it indicates that there is a "put_CleartextPassword" property that can be used (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/termserv/termserv/imsrdpclientadvancedsettings4_cleartextpassword.asp).

Simply put, I just don't know how to work with COM objects that well. Some sample Remote Desktop automation scripts have appeared for similar things on EE(http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Q_20571235.html), but none appear to send the password.

Your assistance is appreciated!

In VB6 the following should work

      RDPControl.Server = <server name or address>
      RDPControl.Domain = <domain>
        RDPControl.Username = <user name>
      RDPControl.AdvancedSettings2.ClearTextPassword = <password>
        RDPControl.Connect

In logon settings in Terminal Services Configuration on the server, make sure that "Always prompt for password" is unchecked, otherwise the user will always be prompted for a password whether you send it or not.
