Remote Desktop - One user gets disconnected when connecting to XP clients
Posted on 2013-10-31
Really strange one this.
We have a user on a Windows7 PC. I will call her Irene.
When Irene tries to launch a remote desktop connection to an XP virtual machine they are disconnected as soon as they log-on (when they see the 'applying personal settings' message).
It doesn't matter what username Irene uses to remotely connect to this XP vm, they are disconnected as soon as they log on.
If Irene logs on to another PC and tries to remotely connect to the XP machine she can successfully remotely connect.
If a different user logs on to the Windows7 PC that Irene is using, they can remotely connect fine.
It just seems to be a problem with one particular user on one particular PC.
I have tried disabling Firewall's/AV but still get the same problem.
