    Problems with Remote Desktop and Microsoft Accoun

    I had Windows 8 on both my laptop and PC and was able to use RDP to connect from my laptop into my PC without any problems.

    I've since updated to Windows 8.1 on both machines.
    In the process I "upgraded" my local account on the laptop to a Microsoft Account (bad idea ) but kept my PC as a local account

    I'm no longer able to RDP into my PC from the laptop, when I try to connect it says the credentials are not recognized

    I covered about every possible detail of remote desktop connections in the following link. Look it over and see if you can find where a mistake was made in credentials or using the correct combination of PC name and user name which are different.
