I download the RDP host program at the following link

So far only the administrators can RDP to this Windows 7 Home PC. When a regular user tries to RDP in, it fails saying that "To log on to this remote computer, you must be granted the Allow log on through Terminal Service". But I do not see such settings on this Home version though I am familiar with Professional version.
Q#1. Is it possible to grant regular user with RDP privilege?
Q#2. If yes, how to configure it?

Thanks.

You may have to make the user and administrator by going to Control Panel\Users.

Home Premium may not have the item that the above poster mentioned because Home Premium does not officially support RDP host.

You could try Start\Run  "compmgmt.msc" and then see if there is System Tools\Local Users and groups and add the user to the remote desktop users group.  However, I suspect you might not find this either because I cannot remember if Home Premium has this inside that management console.
