    Can't login to my wifes account on remote desktop?


    I have logged in to my account on the other computer but I can't log in to my wife's account via her own account on this laptop.
    I have checked to make sure she is allowed to remotely connect on both computers...
    Correct account and passwords.

    I am sorry, but I have read the above sentence about 20 time and can't understand exactly what you are saying for sure.
