What do you mean by 'multiple users'?

If you want to allow multiple users to connect add them to the Remote Desktop Users group on the pc itself...

Note however that only 1 person can connect to a Windows 7 pc at any one time - 2 users can't RDP to it at the same time...if that is what you are trying to do


i know there is workaround that more then one user will be able to remote connect
this machine use to work with many users but i run some updates and it stop working multi for multi users

You won't find workarounds on this site...its against Microsoft licensing RDP multiple users to a single machine you need Windows Server operating systems...

This software appears to allow this to work...but you pay for it
