RDC does not remember credentials

Why is it that RDC does not remember the credentials even if I check it off that it should.

I have about 6 different servers I log in to at customer sites and it is starting to be very time consuming to look up passwords every time and type them in.

Any help on this is appreciated.

Did you save every seperate RDC as a file on your desktop? If not, and you just start the program, the previous credentials are overwritten. Just have 6 icons on your desktop, rightmouse click to Edit, and make sure you have the "Remember" option on. It's only remembered after logging in, and having the Save checkbox on just before clicking connect.

Yes I have the RDC files saved on my desktop and I do specify that I want to save the credentials which does not work either.

It still prompts me to enter the password if I double click the shortcut

The procedure is to set the "Allow me to save..." in the RDC file edit, THEN save the file. Then double click the file, then enter the correct credentials, but in this screen, also TICK the save box.

I have already done that and just tried it again...still not working.

I can do it as you say to first save, then edit and tick the save credentials box and it logs me in. Then I log out and try it again and I'm asked to enter the credentials all over again

No I didn't say first save, then edit.

I said first edit, THEN Save. Read previous post carefully.

All works as per your instructions but then when I come back to the file I have saved and double click it I get "The logon attempt failed". I then enter the correct pass word and it works to log in.

It some how does not save the password
