Windows Credential Manager loses saved credentials

We use Remote Apps through Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services.

they work great.  I have the apps published and I save the credentials for the remote apps in Windows Credentials Manager in the control panel of the connecting clients.  

Keep in mind that the credentials to login to the RDP sever are not the same as the windows login.  

This works.  Unless, the network is down and the user launches the app and it tries to log in.  The next time the user logs in it prompts for the password and it's missing from the credentials manager.  

Is there a way around this?  why does this happen?

Maybe this will help.

What I found is when trying to save the credentials and then attempting to connect to a server 2012 R2 RemoteApp via RSS feed, the credential manager would delete the creds and fail the connection.  This is what I've found to resolve the Credential Manager from deleting credentials.
Upgrade to RDP 8.1 !!
I needed to do this in this order for it work:
1.  Install KB2574819 v2 and reboot
2.  Install KB2830477 and reboot
Now, when I attempt to connect to the RemoteApp, the credentials are no longer deleted AND the connection is successful!
