We have a Win 7 Pro workstation that has software that several people within our network need to use from time to time.  We use RDP to access this workstation.   The problem is that when a second user logs into this machine, the person already logged in is kicked out.  Once in a while the second person gets a message about someone already logged in, but not always.  This has caused data corruption if the person is in the wrong part of the program.

What we need is to change the response from the host machine when the second person tries to log in.  It (ideally) needs to inform them that someone else is in, but must prevent the 2nd person from logging in until the first person disconnects / logs out.

Any ideas how I can do this?
