RDP not saving do not prompt again

I have a workstation that has a local administrator, which when I rdp into another server, it does not prompt to connect anyway.  I added a domain user, to the local adiminstrators group on the pc.  When I log on as the domain user and build the rdp connection, then save it.  I put the check mark in not to prompt again, then I close out, go back in using my saved rdp icon and it asks again.  Every time!  I have found in the registry where it should be updating and the domain user (with local admin rights (built-in Administrators)) won't save the setting like the 'local' administrator.  This is for Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit op system.  What am I missing?  Thanks, Mike

Check in the expanded RDP settings to see if you are saving credentials there.

Also look in Control Panel, Credential Manager. Are the credentials in there? I think they should be.

You can try running System File Checker to see if that corrects Windows issues. Run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete. Restart and test.

I agree with above...click show option in the lower left and check the box as Thinkpads_User indicated.

When connecting to a server...also consider whether you want to use the /admin switch to take over the console session as well, instead of creating a separate login session on that server.

That's a good solution, although I am wondering what was causing the original key to fail.  I use RDP a lot, and have never run into that situation.

Maybe the key is write-protected :D

I checked the permissions for the key and the user had Full Access.  There was no reason for it to fail, but it was.  I know I shouldn't have had to do it, but I had spent about 4 hours trying everything else.  Thanks, Mike
Hi,

You can use mREMOTEng software it will help you to solve your problem, this will remember our all credentials.
Ended up trying this, and it worked.  Nothing else had worked up until this point.  Including the suggested solutions.
