We have an issue when we RDP to Server 2012 from a windows 7 OS  

1. on the remote server 2012 this is with the tick removed for NLA on the remote settings

a. once the line "enablecredsspsupport:i:0"  is placed in the default.rdp file RDP  works

b. If the enablecredsspsupport:i:0 is removed:  it will bring up a logon screen (for sure we are typing the correct account details)  , but it just does not allow logon.

2. With the tick present for NLA on the remote settings
a. with the line enablecredsspsupport:i:0 added to the windows 7 RDP
We get the error : the remote Computer requires Network Level Authentication which your computer does not support ......

b With Line  enablecredsspsupport:i:0 removed its the same as 1.b.

So the only way it works is with NLA tick mark off and line enablecredsspsupport:i:0 added to the windows 7 RDP

additional info

Windows 7 RDP = Shell Version 6.17600
Network level authentication supported
remote desktop protocal 7.0 supported
