    After Update, Remote Desktop keeps asking for User ID/Pwd


    Hello all,

    I have two Win8 Pro x64 laptops and I always Remote Desktop into laptop #2. But since a Windows Update, Remote Desktop is always asking me for login credentials! Even when I select to Save the info, after I close Remote Desktop and then re-open it, it will again prompt me for login.

    Just last week it was fine and was remembering my credentials without any issues. Both laptops have the same User ID and password. This was fine just last week, so the only culprit I see was a Windows Update.

    Is there some sort of setting I need to enable to get it back?

    Thanks.

    Type gpedit.msc in the run box to get to the GPE.

    The Group Policy Settings for Remote Desktop are located at Local Computer Policy>Admin Templates>Windows Components>Remote Desktop Services>"Remote Desktop Client" and "Remote Desktop Session Host", the last two should have the settings that you are looking for.

    For "Remote Desktop Client," everything is set to "Not Configured."

    For "Remote Desktop Session Host," everything under that folder is also set to "Not Configured."
