Open MSTSC using C# and pass along username and password. How can I do this??

Is it possible to extend this to enable the passing of a username and password?

I am on windows xp.

Process rdcProcess = new Process();

            string executable = Environment.ExpandEnvironmentVariables(@"%SystemRoot%\system32\mstsc.exe");
            if (executable != null)
                rdcProcess.StartInfo.FileName = executable;
                rdcProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = "/v " + computerName;  // ip or name of computer to connect

Use CMDkey to pass caches credentials:

 Process rdcProcess = new Process();
            rdcProcess.StartInfo.FileName = Environment.ExpandEnvironmentVariables(@"%SystemRoot%\system32\cmdkey.exe");
            rdcProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = "/generic:TERMSRV/111.444.555.66 /user:" + "MyUserName" + " /pass:" + "Mypass!";

            rdcProcess.StartInfo.FileName = Environment.ExpandEnvironmentVariables(@"%SystemRoot%\system32\mstsc.exe");
            rdcProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = "/v " + "111.444.555.66"; // ip or name of computer to connect

Open in new window

You can copy CMDkey.exe  from windows vista or 7 or 2003 to XP machine and it should work fine.
