hello there,
I have a windows server 2008 at a datacenter overseas and I usually login trough windows remove desktop.. I read online that you can login at the same time so that I can show someone how to use a software..

I clicked start then
>remote desktop session host configuration
>restrict each user to a single session = no

now we can both login as administration which is what I need but he cant see what im doing with the mouse because now he's inside a different session... how can we both login as administrator in the same session so that he can see my mouse movements and stuff?

Well you can't do this with RDP...

Use something like Logmein which will allow you to RDP as normal, then the other user to see your session...

Basically you need a 3rd party remote access solution to do this properly since RDP will always be on a different session

Try this KB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/292190

Or, read through this discussion "Sharing a Remote Session with an Interactive User" on the MS Server forums (for Terminal Services) which explains the resolution.

I believe it's been removed from 2012.
