Cant Login

Hello experts,

When trying to login to a windows 8 PC either locally or by RDP, an error message stating

"The number of connections to this computer is limited and all connections are in use at the moment"

I have tried restarting the machine and also restarting the SBS 2011 server but still getting the same error

Anyone got any ideas please
Windows 8SBS

Hi.

Please tell us if this could have to do with liberately messing the the termsrv.dll in order to make win8 accessible by more than one.
If not: no idea, please give more details: did it work at first, did you change anything, do you run any software that should allow multiple persons to login concurrently?

Hi, I have not changed anything.  It worked the first time I connected over RDP and after about 10 mins the session closed unexpectedly, ever since I have been unable to log back into the machine either over RDP or locally

did u try to use safe mode ?
while booting  keep pressing F8 then choose  safe mode , or last known configuration
