Hello EE,

I am having a Windows 7 RDP issue.

Our old Windows XP Host died and I need to replace it.  
> I would like to use Hyper-V to build a VM that will run Windows 7 Pro and make use of the free RDP user license that comes with it.
> On the VM, there is ONE application that needs to run when the Guest user remotes in - Which I have figured out how to do this and it works fine.
> The issue is that this application requires a "mapped drive" to be in place so that the application is launched it will authenticate the user, which will provide guest access to the Read Only reports.

I have been to get past the Guest using RDP to remote in and the one application is ran.. I just need to figure out the mapped drive.
> Most of my research has found suggestions which involve Terminal Server, which we do not have - We are using the cheater path of using the one free user license.

Any suggestions,
