That is by design. You are not taking over the client session but start a new one - which does not have access to the VPN.
Remote Assistance is probably what you want to use. It allows access without taking over and lock the console screen.

well.....but this worked with some other windows7 laptops, Remote Assistance is ok but when any popup appear in the client asking for credentials (ex: Run as Administrator) the session desconnect as well.

"Run As" and UAC switch to a different desktop, and hence might cut off VPN connection. This again is by design, and I don't know how to circumvent that, sorry. E.g. an elevated prompt does not have access to mapped network drives of the current user.
