At this point there is not a way to use RDP with a batch file to automatically load username and password

you could certainly save the user credentials in the rdp 'shortcut' and just call it from a batch file.

Create a rdp file, save it as foo.rdp

make a batch file with the following in it:

"C:\Path\to\file\foo.rdp"

save it as run_foo.bat

I can't believe I didn't think of saving the credentials in the rdp file. I knew about that, but I was so focused on using a bat file that I forgot about it.
