    If he can run .exe file ask him to go to and give you access. He needs to start teamviewer and you can join his desktop session.

    If he has got no permission to run any exe then you have to grant his user id admin access for 5 min to have him enable the check box.

    If you can access that machine’s registry, you can enable it remotely.
    1. Open regedit
    2. In the File menu click Connect Network Registry
    3. The select computer search box will open. Browse to or type in the server location. Click OK
    4. Browse to this key:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server
    5. Double click on fDenyTSConnection
    6. Change value to 0 and click OK
    7. Close regedit
    8. Reboot the remote system
    – Run this from the run box: shutdown -m \\remotepc -r
    – remotepc is the name of the server to be rebooted
