    If you've ever had to logon to a remote desktop system and wanted to allow the other user session to still be active, here's a free program that can enable multiple concurrent sessions on Windows 7, Vista, & XP - Enable Concurrent Sessions on Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP (Termsrv.dll) - Digiex.

    NOTE: This program patches termsrv.dll. You'll have to ensure that the .ddl is re-patched when a fix of any kind that replaces termsrv.dll is released.

    Hi Joe

    Termsrv.dll hacks have been around ever since MS decided to cripple its terminal server to prevent multi user access with the XP RTM. However using them is of questionable legality, and as you point out have to be redone after a repair or if service should restore the default module. There is also the possibility that at some point it could put a system at a Windows Genuine Disadvantage and consequently prevent updates.

    I would only recommend this patch for experienced folks prepared to deal with the possible consequences.

    Another approach to concurrent remote access under Win 7 is to enable remote access to the XP mode virtual machine. Since the XP machine has its own IP address and machine name it can be remoted into as if it were a separate machine on the network. This is quite legal and not subject to the drawbacks of patching the terminal server.
