Or better still, how to interface to the Remote Desktop?

I want to be able to set the checkbox "Allow users to connect to this computer".

If it is allowed to access, how to programmatically read/add/remove a name to the allowed list of users in Remote Desktop in Windows XP?

Using Delphi 6 only.

There are Windows tools that can do that.

Why do you want to do it from a Delphi program?

With Tregistry class you can add/remove MRU values under key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Default

and

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Servers

Programmatically set following registry key from your Delphi Programm:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\fDenyTSConnections

0 = Connection allowed,
1 = Connection not allowed
